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.”
