Bazaar - Here's the Full Transcript of Meryl Streep's Powerful Golden Globes Speech.
A lot of people are saying that she shouldn't have gotten political, I disagree, she is entitled to say what she wishes. I am more interested in why she felt so "passionate" and seems incapable of figuring out why people voted for Trump. Why does she believe that Trump wants to throw out all foreigners when his own wife is one. Why do so many believe that Trump is anti-Semitic when his own daughter and son in law are Jewish? The answer is that she lives in a bubble of thought. She attends parties with other wealthy people in the arts where they discuss politics from the same limited perspective. The tragedies that have hit the manufacturing industry in the Midwest do not effect her. This is what happens when you have increased social and economic inequality, you only see what is around you. I personally don't believe she is evil, I think she is ignorant and incapable of true empathy for the people who have lost their towns, their industry and were abandoned by the Democratic party.
