Piers Morgan: Sorry, Meryl but that hypocritical anti-Trump rant was easily the worst performance of your career (apart from that time you gave a child rapist a standing ovation)

...Really, Meryl?

For starters, the incident to which she referred didn’t happen last year, it happened in 2015. There’s even been another Golden Globes in between then and now, at which it was never mentioned.

Second, Trump has always furiously denied – and has again today on Twitter - he was mocking the reporter’s disability and a Conservative website produced video evidence of numerous other instances where he made the exact same gesture to fully able-bodied people when attacking them. (See here and decide for yourself)

Third, the reporter is hardly a powerless individual with ‘no capacity to fight back’; he’s a long-time Pulitzer-prize winning investigative journalist at the New York Times, a paper that’s trashed Trump for decades.

But putting all that to one side for a moment – and if Trump WAS mocking a man’s disability then I agree it was disgraceful - let’s move to what Streep said next: ‘Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.’

At this point, I laughed out loud with incredulity.

Not at the words themselves, which are laudable.

No, it was at the hypocrisy.

You’d be hard-pushed to find an industry that encourages more disrespect and violence than Hollywood...

About Meryl Streep's 'crise de conscience' on full display at the Golden Globe Awards, one must remember the artful Ms. Streep is an equal opportunity defender of the downtrodden . In an award ceremony, years past , it was with obvious rapture that Ms.Streep and her Gollywoo {Hollywood} sycophants gave a standing ovation to a child molester . Roman Polanski's adulation was for a Goolywoo 'progressive' elitist , one of their own 'brilliant' & 'beautiful' people, ideologically sainted Roman with a minuscule sexual flaw, he favoured little girls in bed ~!?!
A sobering thought in all this j'accuse hypocrisy is that we’d be hard-pushed to find an industry that encourages more disrespect, mockery and violence than Gollywoo { & always with gratuitous T&A }.
Is it because it wasn't rape-rape , our darling feminist chose to look the other way, despicable behaviour by any measure.
