Hollywood icon Meryl Streep bizarrely lashed-out at the First Family during an interview with the New York Times on Wednesday; demanding they speak-out over the ongoing sexual harassment scandals sweeping the nation as questions swirl around her own relationship with Harvey Weinstein.
The film star sat down with recent co-star Tom Hanks to promote their upcoming film when she was pressed on her own silence regarding disgraced studio executive Harvey Weinstein, whose notorious history of sexual misconduct was well-known throughout the industry for decades.
“What do you make of the fact, though, that people are waiting for you to speak?” asked the Times.
“I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about the silence of Melania Trump. I want to hear from her. She has so much that’s valuable to say. And so does Ivanka. I want her to speak now,” fired-back Streep.
“I have experienced things, mostly when I was young and pretty. Nobody comes on to me [now]. So I wouldn’t have had that more recently,” she added. “But back in the day, when everybody was doing cocaine, there was a lot of [expletive] behavior that was inexcusable. But now that people are older, and more sober, there has to be forgiveness, and that’s the way I feel about it.”
BUSTED: Emails Show CLINTONS SHIELDED Weinstein for Decades
A bombshell report from the New York Times published Wednesday reveals what many had suspected for years; both Bill and Hillary Clinton knew about –and helped conceal- allegations of sexual assault against Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein for decades.
The article, titled “Weinstein’s Complicity Machine,” details the enablers surrounding the studio big-shot, including celebrities as well as prominent political figures; mainly the Clintons.
The author describes the “celebrity shield” that Weinstein had created around himself, noting “Chief among them were Bill and Hillary Clinton.”
“But two prominent women said they warned Mrs. Clinton’s team. In 2016, Lena Dunham, the writer and actress, said she was troubled by the producer’s visible presence during Mrs. Clinton’s presidential run,” the article adds.
Dunham reportedly sent an email to the Clinton campaign ahead of election day, telling staffers that “Harvey’s a rapist” and “it’s going to come out.”
“I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point,” the actress told the campaign’s deputy communications director.
