Liberal actress Meryl Streep was exposed as a massive hypocrite this past fall when it was revealed that her good friend Harvey Weinstein had raped and sexually assaulted countless Hollywood starlets. Though Streep claims to be a proud feminist, and Weinstein’s sexual assaults were an open secret in her circles, she said nothing to stop him from continuing to hurt women.
Now, Streep is desperately trying to get the heat off of herself and put it on Melania Trump, but she’s not going to get away with it.
Bizpac Review reported that Streep and her fellow liberal actor Tom Hanks sat down for an interview on Wednesday to talk about the “Me Too” movement, which was started in the aftermath of the Weinstein scandals.
“What do you make of the fact, though, that people are waiting for you to speak?” New York Times reporter Cara Buckley asked Streep.
“I don’t want to hear about the silence of me,” she responded. “I want to hear about the silence of Melania Trump. I want to hear from her. She has so much that’s valuable to say. And so does Ivanka. I want her to speak now.”
Streep begged Melania and Ivanka to speak out more vocally on the “me too” movement, implying that their voices are considered to be more impactful. However, what she was really doing was trying to deflect the attention off of herself and back to slamming the Trump White House, which Hollywood liberals like her love to attack.
Streep also tried to portray herself as the victim in all of this, but nobody is buying it.
“What have you experienced over the years and how have you dealt with it?” she was asked.
“I have experienced things, mostly when I was young and pretty,” she replied. “Nobody comes on to me [now]. So I wouldn’t have had that more recently. But back in the day, when everybody was doing cocaine, there was a lot of [expletive] behavior that was inexcusable. But now that people are older, and more sober, there has to be forgiveness, and that’s the way I feel about it.”
Twitter users, however, were quick to let Streep know that her attempts at deflection are not working:
Methinks the lady doth deflect too much
