No one with eyes and ears can deny that Meryl Streep is Class with a capital "C" -- and she proved that last night in her speech at the Golden Globes awards. She spoke from her heart with grace and dignity, stating what is obvious to most anyone with a heart of their own: that demeaning a person with disabilities is demeaning to us all. We all know who she is talking about -- a man without class, the heartless, conscienceless bully who is snaking his way to the White House oval office. True to his character -- or lack of it -- Trump tweeted about Streep, one of the greatest actresses of our time or of any time in history, that she is an "overrated actress." And a HIllary "flunkie." (Just let that sink in.)
Trump reveals his ego-ridden crudeness and vulgarity every time he opens his mouth or puts his tweeting fingers to a keyboard. Though high-born to wealth, he is lowest of the low in character and values, and keeps himself at such a base level of consciousness that even Fox news hosts are now speaking out against him. We have seen Megyn Kelly and Greta van Susteren flee that network, though I doubt they will be able to shake off the dark flakes of distortion, dishonesty, disinformation and outright deception that cling to them after spending years of their lives carrying water for the Alt. right and the disgusting Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch.
