Melania Trump has singlehandedly pissed off every celebrity in Hollywood with her latest act as First Lady. Meryl Streep, who famously bashed President Donald Trump at the Golden Globes last month, is especially furious, and every leftist in Tinsel Town will simultaneously wet themselves when they hear what Melania has planned.
FLOTUS will host her first big event at the White House, the Governor’s Ball, on Sunday at the very same time as the Academy Awards. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer pointed out the “scheduling conflict” when asked by a reporter if the president planned to watch the Oscars.
“Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event,” said Spicer. “And the first lady’s put a lot of time into this event that’s going to occur, welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital, and I have a feeling that that’s where the president and the first lady are going to be focused on, on Sunday night.”
Debra Saunders, White House correspondent for the Las Vegas Journal-Review, had posed the question, bringing up what she called the ‘Meryl Streep moment,’ asking Spicer why he thought Hollywood celebrities were speaking out against Trump.
‘I have no idea, it’s a free country,’ he said, adding, ‘I think Hollywood is known for being rather far to the left in its opinion.’
Without ever using Trump’s name, Streep went after the new president at the Golden Globes ceremony last month, particularly knocking him for making fun of a disabled reporter, which Trump has said he didn’t actually do.
‘There was one performance this year that stunned me,’ the award-winning actress said. Trump took to Twitter the next day to offer a rebuttal.
‘Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes,’ the president said in a series of tweets. ‘She is a Hillary flunky who lost big.’ [Source: Mail Online]
I’m sure that most actors aren’t exactly thrilled that they are going to be upstaged by Melania on Sunday, but they’re just going to have to deal with it. Perhaps it’ll teach them a much-needed lesson about priorities. The world does not revolve around them, as I often remind my 5-year-old.
