Now the internet is pointing out that time Trump did an interview with the Hollywood Reporter and said Streep was actually one of his favourite actresses.
“Any actress you love?
Julia Roberts is terrific, and many others. Meryl Streep is excellent; she’s a fine person, too. The problem is I’ll name three or four or five and then the hundred that I know will be insulted, and I don’t mean to insult them.”
I’m going to assume here that since that 2015 Hollywood Reporter interview, Trump has seen Meryl in too many awful movie rolls and this was the perfect opportunity to finally get his opinion off his chest. Thank goodness.
