Meryl Streep attacks Trump’s ‘brownshirts’ claims she’s the ‘most over-berated actress of my generation’

Actress Meryl Streep continued her inappropriate attacks on President Trump, saying that “armies of brownshirts” are after her following her remarks critical of Trump during the Golden Globes awards in January.

“It’s terrifying to put the target on your forehead,” the Iron Lady star claimed. “And it sets you up for all sorts of attacks and armies of brownshirts and bots and worse, and the only way you can do it is if you feel you have to. You have to! You don’t have an option. You have to.”

Streep painted Trump as a “self-dealer,” and said, “The whip of the executive can through a Twitter feed lash and intimidate, punish and humiliate, delegitimize the press and imagined enemies with spasmodic irregularity and easily provoked predictability.”

Streep suggested Saturday evening that the Trump administration serves as a reminder of “how fragile freedom really is,” leaving her Hitler references behind, but perpetuating more fear.

“If we live through this precarious moment — if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter — we will have much to thank this president for,” Streep said during a gala for the Human Rights Campaign in New York. “Because he will have woken us up to how fragile freedom really is.”

Streep, who accepted the National Ally for Equality Award from the LGBT rights organization, said she has a moral obligation to condemn Trump.

The famous Hollywood leftist then attempted to be a martyr for the celebrity elite by claiming that Trump attack of being “overrated.”

“Yes, I am the most overrated, over-decorated and currently, I am the most over-berated actress … of my generation,” she said Saturday.
