Damning Video From 2003 Oscars Shows Why Conservatives Are Calling Meryl Streep a Class-A Hypocrite

Everyone’s talking about Meryl Streep using her Golden Globes acceptance speech to go on a big rant about how horrible Donald Trump is.

In her thinly veiled diatribe, she accuses Trump of mocking a disabled reporter, describes him as having an “instinct to humiliate,” and labels him a bully.

She also made a rather interesting assertion:

“All of us in this room, really, belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press.”

In the above video, Streep and her cadre of “vilified” Hollywood peers can be seen applauding for Roman Polanski — a man who fled the U.S. to avoid prosecution for charges of raping a 13-year-old girl.

Here’s what Polanski said about his alleged victim in a 2012 documentary about his life:

“She is a double victim: My victim, and a victim of the press.”

And Streep didn’t just applaud Polanski in 2003 — she gave him a standing ovation:
