Trump vs. Streep
Hollywood got political once again during the Golden Globes award show Sunday night. After receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award, renowned actress Meryl Streep devoted her time on stage to attacking President-elect Donald Trump. Streep, who was a strong Hillary Clinton supporter, said she was disgusted after Trump allegedly mocked a New York Times reporter during the beginning of his campaign.
"This instinct to humiliate, when it's modelled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody's life. Because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing," She told her Hollywood peers.
The President-elect took to Twitter to respond to Streep’s speech, calling her one of the “most overrated” actresses, and another “Hillary flunk.”
Neil Cavuto weighs in on the controversy, today at 12pm EST on Cavuto Coast to Coast.
