Piers Morgan Rips Meryl Streep’s Anti-Trump Speech as ‘Elitist Snobbery’
“She began by saying that Hollywood, foreigners and the press are ‘the most vilified segments of American society right now,’” Morgan wrote in the Daily Mail, the British media outlet for which he is currently an editor at large. “At which point the cameras panned out to hundreds of the richest, most privileged people in American society sitting in the audience in their $10,000 tuxedos and $20,000 dresses, loudly cheering this acknowledgement of their dreadful victimhood.”
Morgan continued: “She then said that if all the ‘outsiders and foreigners’ were kicked out of Hollywood, ‘you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts,’ … I haven’t heard such elitist snobbery since Hillary Clinton branded Trump supporters ‘a basket of deplorables.’”
Clueless: Insulting Football and Martial Arts fans isn’t the way to influence anyone who isn’t in the Hollywood left wing bubble.
Hollywood’s High Moral Standards
Streep and her cadre of “vilified” Hollywood peers can be seen applauding for Roman Polanski — a man who fled the U.S. to avoid prosecution for charges of raping a 13-year-old girl.
Here’s what Polanski said about his alleged victim in a 2012 documentary about his life:
“She is a double victim: My victim, and a victim of the press.”
