I AM 95 YEARS OLD AND OF SOUND MIND. HAD AN EDUCATION AND HAVE BEEN THROUGH MANY YEARS OF PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS.
WHAT MOVIE STARS DON'T REALIZE BY GETTING INTO POLITICS IS THAT YOU HAVE "NO" CONSIDERATION FOR THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF WHAT WE BELIEVE AND FEEL. SO LIKE ME AND MANY MANY OTHERS WILL NO LONGER WATCH YOUR MOVIES OR SPEAK HIGHLY OF YOU AS AN ACTRESS. YOU HAVE JUST LOWERED YOUR ESTABLISHED REPUTATION INTO THE CATEGORY OF AN EXTREME LEFT WINGED LIBERAL DEMOCRAT WHO CANNOT STAND REPUBLICANS. TRUMP WILL TRY TO DO THE RIGHT WAY FOR AMERICA. IT IS PEOPLE LIKE YOU LIBERALS WHO TURNED THEIR BACKS ON WHAT IS DECENT BECAUSE THEY DON'T LOVE THEIR COUNTRY ONLY THEIR MONEY.

YOUR POLITICAL PERFORMANCE AT THE ACADEMY AWARDS WAS DISGRACEFUL AND UNWARRANTED. WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE ACADEMY ALLOWING POLITICAL DEMOCRAT STATEMENTS EVERY YEAR.
THIS IS NOT WHAT MOVIES AND STARS ARE ALL ABOUT. STICK WITH WHAT YOU KNOW. HUG AND KISSES FOR THE POLITICIANS THAT YOU CAN BUTTER UP AND GIVE YOU TAX DEDUCTIONS.
WE WILL NEVER WATCH ANOTHER MOVIE OF YOURS AND NEVER WATCH THE ACADEMY AWARDS AGAIN. OF COURSE, I AM OLD, SO WHO CARES! RIGHT!

YOU ELITES AND THE RICH JUST FEEL SO ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION IN THE WORLD. LOOKING LOVELY---IF YOU ONLY KNEW HOW SHAMEFUL YOU APPEARED TO THOSE WHO VOTED TRUMP. YOU ARE NOT A PATRIOT AND DO NOT WANT THE COUNTRY TO STAND FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AND ITS BEST INTEREST. THAT IS WHY A MAN LIKE TRUMP WON. THANK GOD.
AND THANK GOD OBAMA IS BEING FLUSHED IN THE TOILET. HE HAS NO LEGACY AND HILLARY WAS GOING TO CONTINUE THAT ANTI-AMERICAN'S AGENDA. A WOMAN LIKE HER SHOULD BE PUT OUT TO PASTURE ON ALL HER CHEATED MONEY SHE MADE ALL THE YEARS IN WASHINGTON. EVEN OBAMA IS WALKING OUT WITH $40M WHILE ME AS A SENIOR DIDN'T EVEN GET A RAISE IN SOCIAL SECURITY FOR 2 YEARS. HOW DARE YOU ALL. CALIFORNIA AND HOLLYWOOD NEEDS TO BE SUCK INTO THE OCEAN FROM AN EARTHQUAKE.

Dear Meryl Streep, You are a very good actress and you give the public a chance to escape to a fantasy world for a while, but that is what you get paid for, entertainment. We the People of this Nations have brains and are well capable of using it! We knew who we wanted for a President and we quietly voted for him. The other candidate was flawed and that it is why we she lost. We do not need celebrities like you speaking for us, because there are a majority of people who are smarter than you and the rest of Hollywood. You continue on about Clinton winning the majorityof the popular vote, but Trump won 33 of 50 states. We the People of this Nation do not want only California and New York voting for us. The right of the people of this Nation have the right to vote not just Liberal Calfornia and Liberal New York. Keep up with your Political rants about our President. This will be the your only way to be in the lime light, because We the People will actually start boycotting your movies, in Theaters, Cable and T.V. You will be a has been before you know it.
