Hollywood actress Meryl Streep is taking a lot of heat for her political speech at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.
In her speech, Streep said, in part:
"There was one performance this year that stunned me — it sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth.
“It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”
Sitting down with “Fox and Friends” on Monday morning, Kellyanne Conway — Trump's former campaign manager — fired back:
"My initial reaction is I'm glad that Meryl Streep has such a passion for the disabled.
Because I didn't hear her weigh in and I didn't even hear her use her platform last night, Ainsley, to give a shout out to the mentally challenged boy who last week was tortured live on Facebook for a half an hour.
By four young African Americans adults who were screaming racial and anti-Trump expletives and forcing him to put his head in toilet water."
Running a quick online search for charitable causes which Streep supports doesn't appear to reflect her Golden Globe-night passion.
Conway followed up by throwing down a challenge to Streep, and her supposed passion for helping the disabled.
