Meryl Streep and Behghazi
In a nearly 6-minute address while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress denounced Trump’s campaign rhetoric and criticized him for mocking a disabled reporter.
“It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back.”
Many were offended by Trumps mockery, but Hillary had her moments of mocking people.
Charles Woods, the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods who was killed in the 2012 attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, said that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied to him about an anti-Muslim video being the cause of the attack, and his son’s death, and that she also “lied to the American people” and to “other family members” who lost loved ones in Benghazi.
Hillary Clinton was mocking her cover up of the Murder of US Amb. Stevens when she said “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans,” Clinton said. “What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?”
Hillary Clinton and her top aide ignored growing dangers at the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, as intelligence existed indicating an attack on the facility was possible, according to a report by the House Benghazi Select Committee.
Meryl Streep was not making a stance on dignity, she was simply pushing her own misguided ill informed opinion.
I still do not understand Hollywood’s obsession with spewing forth their political an economic nonsense, they are not the main event, they are simply a side show to the real world, they are the entertainment, court jesters that America has elevated to royalty.
I remember my Grandfathers response to poorly formed opinions, “if I wanted the pigs, I would rattle the bucket”.
