Meryl Streep is my hero!


I vowed long ago to never get political on this blog, and I have forced myself not to say a word about how devastated I am by the Americans who voted for Donald Trump. But after reading Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes – regretting I missed hearing her – I can’t bite my virtual tongue any longer. She had the courage to stand up and say what I and many others think.

Moments ago I read Trump’s response on twitter. He called Streep “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.” OMG! The woman is one of the greatest actresses of all time.

Trump sickens me! The tactics he used to win the election are disgusting. He mocked a disabled reporter, race baited and encouraged violence at his rallies. Worse still, he cozied up to Russian leader Vladimir Putin, inviting the hacking that damaged Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning. I fear what he will do to this country over the next four years.

Okay, that’s the end of my rant. It may get me in hot water with some of you. So be it. This is a free country – for now at least – and I have the right, no, the responsibility to speak out against a man I do not trust with our future.

  1. This post took guts, Lyn. You spoke your mind eloquently and expressed things many are reticent to say in public. How boring would the world be if everyone held the same opinion?

    It saddens me that so many people these days bite their tongues for fear of backlash. I wish more folks had your bravery and ability to express viewpoint without bullying or name-calling. {{{hugs}}}

    • Thank you, Kathleen. I appreciate your kind words. It was perhaps unwise to voice my opinion on a blog devoted to writing and marketing books, but as I said, I just couldn’t bite my tongue any longer. Thanks so much for stopping by!
