Meryl Streep Vows To Call Clint Eastwood And “Correct” His Support Of Trump

Excerpted from The Hill: Meryl Streep says she was caught off guard by fellow movie star Clint Eastwood’s recent defense of Donald Trump.

“I didn’t know that,” she said in an interview published by Variety on Monday when she learned that Eastwood said he’d support the GOP nominee over Hillary Clinton.

“I’ll have to speak to him. I’ll have to correct that.”

“I’m shocked, I really am,” added Streep, who starred alongside Eastwood in the 1995 film “The Bridges of Madison County.” “Because he’s more — I would have thought he would be more sensitive than that.”

Eastwood said last week he would back Trump over Clinton if those were his only two options for the presidency.

“I’d have to go for Trump … you know, [because] she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in [President] Obama’s footsteps,” he said in an interview with Esquire published on Aug. 3.

Streep said in Monday’s interview she is concerned by the presidential campaign’s tone, particularly at Trump’s rallies.

“When you get a lot of people in a group, it can go good or it can go bad in a way that [overrides] each individual person,” she said. “The aggregate of everybody’s emotion, it’s a powerful thing.”

“You can see it in the Trump rallies, where people I just know, in their living rooms, would be better people, are driven to the worst possibilities by the bloodlust in a crowd,” Streep added of the GOP presidential nominee.

“It just gets ginned up and they’re outside of themselves. They’re behaving as a larger unit, not just themselves.”

Streep, who backs Clinton, added she expects pragmatism will ultimately drive voters to the Democratic presidential nominee over Trump.

“I think there is a reckoning,” she said of the general election. “People will go — or their wives will go — ‘you know what? This is crazy. It’s too tricky. We’re not going to gamble with our children’s future.'” Read the whole thing

    Gotta defend the agenda. Trump is a threat to the establishment (the establishment is the same regardless of party) this is why establishment republicans will not vote for Trump. Or say they won’t.
