Meryl Streep has once again called out Donald Trump.
The Oscar-winning actress was accepting an award this Saturday evening at the 2017 Human Rights Campaign Greater New York Gala and referred to President Trump during her speech.
“If we live through this precarious moment, if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter, we will have much to thank our current leader for. He will have woken us up to how fragile freedom is.” – The 67 year old actress told.
The whip of the executive, through a Twitter feed, can lash and intimidate, punish and humiliate, delegitimize the press and imagined enemies with spasmodic regularity and easily provoked predictability.” – Streep continued.
This is the second time the actress addresses Trump during an acceptance speech. Back at this year’s Golden Globes she mentioned (in a negative way) him for the first time and the President didn’t took it very well.
He even called her overrated after hearing what she said. This time Meryl used her speech to also refer to Trump’s “overrated” comment.
“Yes, I am the most overrated, over decorated and, currently, over-berated actress, who likes football, of my generation. But that is why you invited me here! Right?” – She told.
