Imagine you’re a sewage worker, and sewage workers give themselves awards — which, of course, is rather narcissistic of sewage workers.
You’re at a sewage workers award love-fest.
Then an award winner gets on a soap box and starts ranting about politics, the election, and Donald Trump.
You would think:
“Why is a sewage worker pontificating about politics? What makes a sewage worker an expert on the election? And why are we listening to this drivel?”
Now substitute the words “sewage workers” with the words “movie actors” . . . .
During the Golden Globe Awards last Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017, two grandiose narcissists, well knowing that the event was broadcast and widely reported by the media, abused their acceptance speeches by going on a rant about Trump.
While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, Meryl Streep, 67, garbed in a garish dress, trashed Trump and his remarks targeting “foreigners” and journalists. She said she was “mortified” during the presidential campaign by Trump’s criticism of New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has arthrogryposis, a congenital condition that affects his movement. (Trump said he did not mock Kovaleski’s disability because Trump had never met him and therefore did not know the reporter is disabled.)
Streep, who endorsed Hillary Clinton at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, then called for people to “support press rights” as a check on Trump’s power, by which she must mean the press “rights” to abandon all journalistic objectivity by being Hillary’s bitches. See:

- Banned by HuffPo, David Seaman calls media collusion with Hillary Clinton ‘Orwellian propaganda’
As for “foreigners,” presumably referring to illegal migrants and Muslim refugees, Streep said, “Hollywood is crawling with foreigners, so if you kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts. And those are not arts.”
Hey, Streep! I didn’t know Hollywood is “crawling” with illegal aliens and Muslim refugees! By the way, with a net worth of $75 million, what have you done for those poor illegal aliens and those poor Muslim refugees? Maybe you took some of them into your palatial homes in Connecticut, New York City, and the Hollywood Hills?
Actor Chris Pine obsequiously thanked Streep for her speech after the Globes returned from a commercial break.
Accepting the award for best supporting actor in a limited series or TV movies, British actor Hugh Laurie, 57, who played a doctor in the eponymous TV series House, also abused his time at the microphone to trash Trump and all Republicans, saying:
“Thank you first of all to the Hollywood Foreign Press association for this amazing honor. Of course [it’s] more amazing because I’ll be able to say I won this at the last ever Golden Globes. I don’t mean to be gloomy, it’s just that it has the words ‘Hollywood,’ ‘Foreign,’ and ‘Press’ in the title. I also think to some Republicans even the word ‘association’ is sketchy. I accept this award on behalf of psychopathic billionaires everywhere.”
Who knew Laurie wasn’t acting but was being himself when he pretended to be the grandiose, nasty and sociopathic Dr. Gregory House?
By the way, my analogy of sewage workers means no disrespect to them.
With an average salary of $68,598 and some salaries of over $121k, sewage workers are paid well for work that few of us want to do. They deserve every penny — unlike people like Streep and Laurie who rake in millions for lying before the camera, pretending to be people they’re not.
MMA (mixed martial arts) fighters are fighting back. From Heatstreet:
“Her words not only seemed to imply that MMA and football were lowbrow forms of entertainment for paupers, but that these sports were also less inclusive of foreigners than [acting]….
Aggrieved, several fighters and mixed martial arts supporters took to Twitter to voice their opinions on Streep’s comments. Many pointed to the double standard in her speech, which called on Americans to rise above hatred and intolerance yet casually dissed an entire class of sports and their fans.
UFC Host Megan Olivi wrote: ‘Really weird to see someone talk about not discriminating then basically discriminate against an entire group of skilled, hard working ppl.’
Others reminded her that numerous Ultimate Fighting Championship’s titleholders hail from many parts of the world, with champions Jose Aldo, Conor McGregor, Amanda Nunes or MMA superstar Ronda Rousey all having roots outside the country.”
