All the internet is abuzz resurrecting a moment in the 2016 presidential campaign thanks to actress Meryl Streep turning her Golden Globes Lifetime Achievement Award (granted, deserved in the field of acting) acceptance speech into a diatribe against the President Elect based on what is termed a REALLY bad impression – and she didn’t even mention Donald Trump’s name. Keep in mind, that the liberal mindset zeroes in on precise and minute details of single incidents, not track records. From Fox News:
Trump’s spastic arm waving at a rally last November while mimicking New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski drew swift condemnation from opponents who claimed Trump was making light of a disability. It’s followed him ever since.
Well, you know what Meryl, Donald Trump is a businessman, not an actor, and not a stand up comic. His communication skills are not in the realm of, say, yours. He’s more of a straight shooter than the sort to use guilt, innuendo and smugness to get a fake news point across. Seriously, Catholics 4 Trump pointed out last year at the time of the “impression” controversy, that the jittery hands the only impression he has in his arsenal. The full post linked above has multiple examples, but here is one that happened before the incident the liberals made such a fuss over.
At a February rally in South Carolina, Trump deployed the impression style to mock Cruz’s answer to a question about waterboarding that was posed during an earlier debate. With a panicked look on his face and his hands flapping about, Trump stammered “Oh, I don’t wanna talk about it!”
Trump also used the arm-thrashing act when making fun of himself during an interview with Larry King in 2005; when imitating a bank president in October; and when mocking an Army general at the same November speech in which he made the original Kovaleski comments.
Tucker Carlson puts Streep’s performance in perspective:
Bottom line, yes, that little performance was exactly what the moonbats in Hollywood wanted to hear, and wanted someone to say. What they don’t realize is that the audiences they seek to attract are decidedly turned off by that sort of behavior. We on the fruited plain prefer the grace and class of the Golden Period when a simple “thank you” served as an acceptance speech. Political stupidity on display does not help the actors’ cause.
