Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson took Hollywood actress Meryl Streep to task for her controversial Golden Globes invective against Donald Trump, in which she tearfully criticized the president-elect for allegedly mocking a disabled reporter.
In a segment of the Monday episode of âTucker Carlson Tonight,â Carlson invited conservative radio show host Laura Ingraham to discuss Streepâs rant, which she criticized as âtedious and pedestrian.â
While Ingraham praised Streep as a âphenomenal actress,â she also blasted the speech as hypocritical and indulgent.
âItâs a little bit selfish to be on stage, and youâre being honored for your work in film, and you decide to take that platform and turn it into a political speech,â Ingraham opined. âWhy turn off half of America?â
Tucker then chimed in with his own rebuke of Streepâs rant, which he labeled as ânot so much a political speech, but a sermon.â
âThe undertone of it â the subtext â was, âIâm a good person, and you have fallen short, Mr. and Mrs. Trump voter of America,ââ Carlson said.
Later, Carlson called Streep out for criticizing Trumpâs immigration and blasting him as a bigot when she has not personally extended an invitation to house Syrian refugees in her âmassive estateâ in Salisbury, Connecticut.
