What with all of President-elect Donald Trump’s busy days battling Broadway shows and Oscar winners on social media, it’s no wonder he can’t find time for an intelligence briefing. As we’ve seen this week, Trump’s latest Twitter target is actress Meryl Streep, whose searing Golden Globes speech exposed so many of his follies while remaining remarkably poised, graceful, and tough as all get-out — much like Streep herself.
Since Trump lashed out Monday to call Streep “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood,” seemingly all of Hollywood has spoken in her defense. But Vanity Fair has shared perhaps the best defense of all, which came from one of Streep’s fellow luminaries: Robert DeNiro.
DeNiro continued: “Enough is enough. You, with your elegance and intelligence, have a powerful voice — one that inspires others to speak up as they should so their voices will be heard too. It is so important that we ALL speak up.”
