To deflect away from her own culpability in the matter of Harvey Weinstein (a man she declared “God“), disgraced actress Meryl Streep attacked First Lady Melania Trump and President Trump’s daughter Ivanka over their “silence” regarding Weinstein. A baffling and desperate act that Donald Trump Jr. ridiculed using his Twitter account.
“Amazing that the only person in all of Hollywood who didn’t know Weinstein was a serial assaulter (of course she did) has an opinion on this,” Trump wrote.
What Streep was not asked to explain by the sycophantic New York Times in a follow-up question, is why she believes the First Lady or Ivanka would speak out against Weinstein, when, by all accounts, they did not do any business with him. Moreover, their respective brushes with the entertainment business did not include the film industry. Ivanka appeared on her father’s reality TV show. Melania was in fashion and modeling.
Streep, on the other hand, made around a half-dozen films with Weinstein over three decades. One of those titles resulted in her winning an Oscar. Others resulted in nominations.
