Barbra Streisand, one of Hollywood’s aging elites, took to MSNBC’s Hardball to respond to Meryl Streep’s anti-Donald Trump speech at the recent Golden Globes, and not only said she agreed wholeheartedly with what the award-winning actress had to say, but that the president-elect’s subsequent tweets were shameful and degrading to the high office.
“I thought she said what she said beautifully,” Streisand said of Streep, who had characterized Trump as a cruel individual for reportedly mocking a disabled reporter – something Trump has denied doing time and again.
Streisand went on, Breitbart reported:
“And It’s easy enough to see the video online of Trump mocking — you just showed it — I completely agree with Meryl. It was heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person. What we need more is kindness and common decency. And what he did, how he reacted and how he needs — he has the need to talk back and insult anybody who doesn’t agree with him, and that’s pretty disgraceful.
“What’s the signal to little children who watch television and see this behavior of the soon to be president of the United States? Little girls were heartbroken when Hillary Clinton didn’t get to to be president. So I think it’s what they see. Children will listen, I sang that in a song once, and you know they will see and they will learn. And you know I’m in the middle of having my teeth cleaned. You caught me at a disadvantage.
“That is why you cant trust anything he says because if you get on his wrong side, he will blast you negatively… He had a New Year’s Eve party, but he wasn’t generous to give that to his followers as a president. He had to charge for it and put that money into this club. Don’t you think that’s a little strange?”
Streisand then went on to express how proud she was of Streep for attacking the president-elect during her Golden Globes’ speech.
And her final say?
Again, as Breitbart noted:
“I was very proud of her. She’s a wonderful actress and that he had to denigrate her talent because she spoke out. Why is he not sitting through briefings rather then tweeting this nonsense and rating wars with Arnold Schwarzenegger? I don’t know how we’re going to take four years of this.”
