AmericanThinker: Meryl Streep’s six-minute attack on President-Elect Donald Trump at the Golden Globes incited one C-SPAN caller to actually threaten the incoming president on air. The actress’s Sunday-night award speech was the topic of John McArdle’s call-in show Monday morning.
In his call, which begins at the 10:02 mark, a Democrat named Julius, from Greensboro, North Carolina, blasts Trump as a “bully and a phony.” Bizarrely, he references Trump’s 2005 Access Hollywood recording. Trump’s 11-year-old comments prompt an angry Julius to tell McArdle that if Trump were to come near Julius’s two daughters, “I would do something to him [Trump].”
Transcript and audio:
Julius: I am glad that Meryl Streep did what she did. Donald Trump is nothing but a bully, a phony and all other things. I have two daughters and I wish Donald Trump would grope one of them. I wish he would – he would not set up there and say ‘I did not do this’ because I would do something to him.
In her well rehearsed speech, Streep encouraged this kind of deranged mindset. As another caller stated when asked if Hollywood actors’ political opinions actually influence the public, “it does make a difference, especially to impressionable people who put so much stock into what these actors and personalities on TV has [sic] to say. For those more informed, it may not.”
