While actress Meryl Streep delivered her widely discussed anti-Trump speech to a receptive, liberal audience at Sunday’s Golden Globes, the cameras also captured seemingly genuine reactions from two, well-known Hollywood conservatives.

Yeah, Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn definitely didn’t appear impressed by Streep’s blistering speech.
Here’s the video:

The famous actors may or may not actually support Trump — the internet is just having some fun.
Streep delivered her remarks while accepting the prestigious Cecil B. Demille award at the Golden Globes.
“This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” she said, clearly referring to Trump. “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”

Within hours of the speech, Trump responded dismissively to Streep’s criticism and called her a “Hillary lover.”
