Piers Morgan Annihilates Meryl Streep’s Trump Scene Performed at the Golden Globes

Once liberal cry baby, now redpilled destroyer of establishment shills who seem unable to accept the election results, Piers Morgan chimed in on last night’s anti-Trump tirade by Meryl Streep — and utterly destroyed her.

I don’t want to spend any more time on this ridiculous topic than this post. The only reason why I’m delving into it is to debunk the refuse circulating online. After all, “The Fly” is all about winning the culture wars. But for those of you adamant about Trump mocking a disabled reporter employed by the most powerful newspaper in the world, watch the following video of Trump using the same hand gestures while mocking other ‘non-disabled’ people and tell me with a straight face that you still believe Trump is guilty.

Piers Morgan chimes in.

Last night, Streep received a Lifetime Achievement award at the Golden Globes, and chose the moment to launch a very personal attack on Donald Trump.

She began by saying that Hollywood, foreigners and the press are ‘the most vilified segments of American society right now’.

At which point the cameras panned out to hundreds of the richest, most privileged people in American society sitting in the audience in their $10,000 tuxedos and $20,000 dresses, loudly cheering this acknowledgement of their dreadful victimhood.

She then said that if all the ‘outsiders and foreigners’ were kicked out of Hollywood, ‘you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.’

Wow.

I haven’t heard such elitist snobbery since Hillary Clinton branded Trump supporters ‘a basket of deplorables’.

For your information, Ms Streep, tens of millions of ordinary Americans love football and the MMA and would be quite happy watching their favourite sports at the expense of the next Woody Allen film.

Her real target, though, was Trump. She’d come to take him down, and that is exactly what she proceeded to do.

‘There were many powerful performances this year that did breathtaking, compassionate work,’ she said. ‘But there was one performance that stunned me. It sank it hooks in my heart, not because it was good – there’s nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege and power and the capacity to fight back.’

Meryl’s bottom lip began to tremble.

‘It kind of broke my heart when I saw it,’ she cried, ‘and I still can’t get it out of my head. This instinct to humiliate when it’s modelled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, filters down into everybody’s life because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing.’

Hmmm.

Really, Meryl?

For starters, the incident to which she referred didn’t happen last year, it happened in 2015. There’s even been another Golden Globes in between then and now, at which it was never mentioned.

Second, Trump has always furiously denied – and has again today on Twitter – he was mocking the reporter’s disability and a Conservative website produced video evidence of numerous other instances where he made the exact same gesture to fully able-bodied people when attacking them.

Third, the reporter is hardly a powerless individual with ‘no capacity to fight back’; he’s a long-time Pulitzer-prize winning investigative journalist at the New York Times, a paper that’s trashed Trump for decades.

But putting all that to one side for a moment – and if Trump WAS mocking a man’s disability then I agree it was disgraceful – let’s move to what Streep said next: ‘Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.’

At this point, I laughed out loud with incredulity.

Not at the words themselves, which are laudable.

No, it was at the hypocrisy.

You’d be hard-pushed to find an industry that encourages more disrespect and violence than Hollywood.

A place where rich powerful people make billions of dollars by regularly pandering to the lowest common denominators of sexism, racism, homophobia and misogyny.

And happily exploit ever more hideous, graphic violence to make a fast, easy buck.

And seethe from every tinsel-encrusted pore with the very kind of nasty, power-based bullying that Meryl Streep claims to be so incensed by in Trump.

So great though her censorious words indisputably are, they would be perhaps better directed at her own back yard.

To highlight just one example of Streep’s shocking hypocrisy, what about the 2003 Oscars when she leaped to her feet and gave child rapist Roman Polanski a standing ovation after he was announced as winner of Best Director for The Pianist?

    This stuff is so dumb. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

    Streep’s whining at whatever that event is, was lame and wrong. Trump impersonating retards or exaggerating flustered people (whatever you want to call that rhetorical device, mocking I guess?) to discredit a talking point is lame and wrong.

    It’s surprising anyone gave a shit what Streep has to say. But I do care what our President Elect says and how he says it.

    Warning. The following statement was produced in a facility that also processes FACTUAL EVIDENCE.

    “Ideally, we’d get to elect someone with unimpeded integrity, a person of honor and character that we can praise to our children as examples of excellence, a role model. Unfortunately, Trump isn’t that type of person and I think everyone who supports him already knew that.

    Trump is immature, stubborn, crass and crude. As President, I expect that he will be strident in his approach to make new enemies in government, calling out the bullshit — and shaking things up for real, substantive, change.”

I am only pointing out that Fly and others bash liberals here and seem to think that doing so is a substitute for solving problems.

          IT’s too bad that pointing out obvious facts seems like an insult to you.

    I just had to post it twice. Twice is nice.

    So either you’ve been converted to Trumpism… where everything against Trump is evil and Trump is now god…

    and you are all nothing but tribal mouth breathing idiots whose opinions are void of reason and logic… simply praising everything Pro-Trump… and shunning all opposition.

    “a person of honor and character that we can praise to our children as examples of excellence”

    Great writing Fly!

    Anyone who thinks Trump is “a character we can praise to our children as examples of excellence”

    …deserves to have their children taken away, ground up into powder, packaged into gelatin capsules, and sold to the Chinese as male enhancement pills

        Peaches,

        Honest question: are you actually gay? Nothing wrong with being so, but your behavior is odd……like you are a repressed angry type of gay that is uncomfortable in his own skin. All of your references involves wrestling males to the ground against their will and trying to force them into homosexual acts with you. I know some gay guys and gals, but have never heard any of them speak as crass as you do with all of these detailed, strange, violent sounding sexual references.

        On the other end of the spectrum, I have played sports my entire life, I’m very familiar with locker room talk, but your particular brand of locker room talk (assuming thats what you are trying to do) is the very odd type that would make the other guys clear out of the room. You sound like a repressed peter-gazer who is super angry that he can’t come out publicly…..so you just make all of these angry sounding gay references.

        It’s not my business, but consider seeking help. There are people out there who can help you in your transition (if that is the dilemna you are facing). Repressing who you are isn’t healthy for you. Consider re-reading your comments, or sharing them with someone you trust and asking their opinion. Its difficult to interpret your angry sounding rape references as anything other than a person projecting years of anguish over repressed feelings……so much so that you have jumped the shark and these repressed feelings are manifesting in a unsettling violent tone.

        I know this isn’t my business, but no human wants to see their fellow human suffer. There is help out there and people who would gladly help you realize your dream of being who you truly are or want to be.

      I learned to read at 2 though. I simply can’t help that I’m weird and read encyclopedias front to back in elementary instead of Harry Potter or Nancy Drew or Sports Illustrated like you disgusting regular folk. Brain’s absorb information. Especially at a young age. Most of you filled it up with silly facts about silly men playing with silly balls. Shame.

          This is all Donald Trump’s fault. and Ironbird. Ironbird thinks calling everyone who disagrees with him a fag is a legitimate argument. It is sophomoric and lazy. It only proves that like so many others here and elsewhere, they do not know anything about politics, current events, etc.

          Sort of like Carl Icahn telling Larry Fink that Yellen was driving us off a cliff and that there would never be buyers for all the credit etfs Larry was making a killing off of. Guess what happened… the market came to equilibrium. No busses were driven off of any cliffs. Except for OUR treasury longs.

          Don’t take this as a character evaluation. Icahn is a winner and Fink is a dildo. But thats the problem… winners of vast amounts of coin like Icahn, Trump and you, and maybe ironbird… think because they have money they have brains…

          its BS. By this logic strippers are smarter than nurses and professors at the engineering department of NYU.

          You guys make a few good trades… more good ones than bad ones basically… just like I do… then watch ESPN and Fox News and try and pretend you know everything educated Ivy League diplomats know about the world… because it was fed to you by newswomen with nice legs!

          Ironbird cannot read. Or write. And illiteracy should not be rewarded it should be punished. We must actively work to better our society by punishing the sick and twisted evil and ignorance that pervades in it.

          Letting ironbird roam free as you always do, as if he is not a sad moronic excuse for an American citizen, naturally brings superior men like myself out to digitally cock slap him.

    I almost missed this whole meltdown of homoerotic filled Trump hate if it weren’t for RAUL’s tweet.

    I’ve used the new powers bestowed upon me to label more “Fake News” comments than ever before thanks to LeFly’s new system!

    Meryl Streep isn’t evil, she just needs to read less WaPo propaganda like most old people.

    Peaches “locker room” talk indicstes he’s most certainly of the San Fran persuasian… Pan-sexual might be the libtard term for it.

    Still the same tactics from peaches and frog.
    …attempt to deflect from the real issues.

    There is no other way to try and hide the fact Ol’ Hill has all the appeal of a rotting whale carcass washed up on the beach.
    She’s as trustworthy as the wind , blowing this way today and 180* from it tomorrow.
    She’s probably been responsible in one form or another, for more death and destruction than Vlad Putin himself.
    You would also be hard pressed to find a person more adept at the fine arts of pandering and self aggrandizement than her highness.
    The air of entitlement wafts about her like stink on a skunk.
    She is the epitome and personification of nearly everything wrong with this country and its government, and a vote for her at this juncture would very likely have been fatal to the USA.

      I’ve admitted I know Hilary is a criminal like 1000 times. Trump is still retarded.

      It’s like you pointing out how fat my prom date is when I point out that your date is a man.

      If anyone deflects consistently… it is you guys. Trump is an idiot. He ran a campaign insulting people to get redneck votes from emasculated old men, thus stealing the republican base of hick retards and sweeping the election. He lied about everything, and the rednecks are too stupid to realize. The rest of you are simply being hopeful and giving him the benefit of the doubt… assuming he will not disappoint you despite the obvious signs he has nothing new to bring to the table but 2000-2008 PART DEUX. Every stock market crash in this century occured during a Republican administration.

      I will now add some BS for you to focus on instead of the cold hard facts above, which you simply cannot refute.

      We will never join your side, and you will never join ours. If taunting ironbird homophobic ass with rape threats makes me gay…

      shit its the internet bro who cares.

      I think gay people are confused and perverted. Honest truth.

      That doesn’t mean I won’t rape you after wrestling you down to the concrete.

      Its simply not gay if it happens on the concrete with cargo shorts on bro.

        That’s never a good kind of rapist to be

      Um Peaches… you forgot to mention that your prom date was not only fat, he/she/it was a blow up doll.

      P.S. You ARE a Polish joke.
