Hollywood, spare us your hypocrisy

CNN)Voters don't take much notice of what Hollywood says about politics. If they did, Hillary Clinton would be president by now.

What's more, when Meryl Streep launched a tearful, heartfelt attack on the President-elect at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, accusing him of mocking a reporter with a disability, it did not surprise. A Hollywood star unloading on a Republican? Seen it. Donald Trump responding with a vicious counterattack on Twitter? Predictable. Trump called Streep "overrated," as if they were a pair of screen rivals having a good old-fashioned catfight.

No question, Streep's emotional speech was delivered with tremendous dignity and made a very good point -- one proven by Trump's nasty reply: The man cast as the next president of the United States can be mean and petulant.

Oh really? Where was this Leftist Brit when Obama was telling the GOP to get in the back of the bus? I also note that this snowflake wrote a book called  "Citizen Hollywood: How the Collaboration Between L.A. and D.C. Revolutionized American Politics". Looks like that book was a load of shit if the last couple of election cycles have anything to say about it.
