AceShowbiz - %cMeryl Streep% has finally reacted to %cDonald Trump%'s diss calling her "one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood" after she condemned Trump's policies at the Golden Globes. During the Human Rights Campaign's 2017 Greater New York Gala Dinner, Streep used her time while accepting the Ally for Equality Award to deliver another powerful speech, addressing current state of affairs that are happening under Trump's regime.
"Yes, I am the most overrated, overdecorated and currently, I am the most over-berated actress of my generation," said Streep, indirectly mentioning who she was speaking about. "But that is why you invited me here. Right?" she jokingly added.
" 'Evil prospers when good men do nothing'... ain't that the truth," said Streep at the Gala Dinner. "We shouldn't be surprised that fundamentalists, of all stripes, everywhere, are exercised and fuming," she added. "We shouldn't be surprised that these profound changes come at much steeper cost than it seems would lie true in the 20th century. We shouldn't be surprised if not everyone is totally down with it."
Streep continued, "But 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 this president for because he will have woken us up to how fragile freedom really is." The actress added, "The whip of the Executive can, through a Twitter feed, lash and intimidate, punish and humiliate, delegitimize the press and imagined enemies with spasmodic regularity and easily provoked predictability."
Streep concluded her speech by saying, "All of us have the human right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If you think people were mad when they thought the government was coming after their guns, wait until you see when they try to take away our happiness."
