Meghan McCain Tries Telling Meryl Streep To Stop Bashing Trump, Gets Demolished On Twitter

For unknown reasons, Meghan McCain has managed to position herself as the “voice of young Republicans” despite her only qualification being that her dad is the guy who lost to Barack Obama and left us with Sarah Palin. As part of her duties as Top Young Con, she occasionally goes onto Twitter to lecture liberals on what they are doing wrong. On Sunday, America may have finally reached its patience with this tired routine.

McCain was upset that Meryl Streep took the opportunity at the Golden Globes to drag Trump for his intolerance and cruelty.

“This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others – we all lose.”

It was an eloquent speech and was heavy on stressing compassion over ugliness. Sadly, just asking people to be better to each other was enough to send right-wing Twitter into a defensive rage, with McCain leading the charge. By her estimate, Streep’s plea for love over hate is the reason “Trump won.”

It was a nonsense statement and the internet let her know it.

There’s also this little inconvenient fact for Republicans to chew on:

And the fact that Republicans are so defensive about being asked to be compassionate is telling. After all, there is nothing inherently political about being nice, it’s just that right now the leader of the Republican Party is a thin-skinned bully with a habit of using racial and xenophobic fears to further his agenda and the party he runs is consumed with a desire to take the health insurance away of millions of Americans.

So let’s flip it around: Meryl Streep isn’t the reason Trump got elected. The fact that millions of people watched a man humiliate a disabled reporter, order fans to beat up a black protester, and brag about sexual assault and still vote for him is why Trump won.

Then this happened.

So now anyone who doesn’t allow Trump to bully the disabled or pick on any other group is living in a “bubble?” Not a good look, Meghan.

Whether or not Trump wins another term is not up to Meryl Streep. It’s up to the people who continue to support this bully to wake up and see that they the man they just gave the White House to is an embarrassment and that America deserves better. And that will be how Trump is beaten.
