Meryl Streep just declared war on Melania and Ivanka Trump in explosive interview

Amid allegations of complicity for her “silence” over the Harvey Weinstein scandal, actress Meryl Streep struck back by insisting that Melania and Ivanka Trump are the ones who should speak out about sexual harassment against high-profile men.

I don’t want to hear about the silence of me,” Streep said during an interview with The New York Times. “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.”

After the public fall of Weinstein, Streep faced criticism from those who claimed that she knew about his behavior. Right-wing agitators jumped at the chance to tie the award-winning actress – and a frequent critic of Trump – to the much-maligned Weinstein.

Streep, however, staunchly defended herself.

“I don’t have a Twitter thing or — handle, whatever. And I don’t have Facebook. I really had to think,” Streep said. “Because it really underlined my own sense of cluelessness, and also how evil, deeply evil, and duplicitous, a person [Weinstein] was, yet such a champion of really great work.”

Trump, for his part, has been accused of sexual harassment or misconduct by 19 women. He has neither confessed to these crimes nor taken any degree of responsibility for them. Even in the face of damning evidence – such as the Access Hollywood tapes – the President has refused to address the issue.

He even went so far as to suggest to a sitting Senator, as well as an adviser, that his incriminating Access Hollywood tape – in which he admitted to sexual assault – is inauthentic.

Trump himself confirmed the infamous tape’s legitimacy on October 12, 2016, a fact that seemed to escape the President as he issued perhaps his most easily debunked denial.

“This was locker-room talk,” Trump said during a debate with his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. “Certainly I’m not proud of it. I apologize to my family, I apologize to the American people.”

While touting women’s values, Melania and Ivanka have direct access to a man who has committed perhaps the most egregious offenses of sexual misconduct against women from a position of power. If they are truly the champions of equality that they claim to be, they should use their voices for the common good—for once.
