Iconic singer and entertainer Pat Boone is tired of Hollywood liberals like Meryl Streep who frequently attack President Donald Trump and present America in a bad light.
At the 25th Annual Movieguide Awards, which celebrates family and faith-based movies, Boone took direct aim at Meryl Streep. When asked what bothers him about Hollywood, Boone replied, “Hollywood should be presenting the very best picture of America and who the average people want to be.”
Then he took the gloves off:
Boone, 82, lambasted Meryl Streep for her Golden Globes speech in January where she denounced Donald Trump’s ideology and accused him of mocking disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski in his campaign.
The Moody River singer said he feels that she refused to give Trump a ‘chance,’ as well as saying Hollywood shuts out conservatives and is ‘99% liberal,’ to the detriment of the nation’s image around the world.
He spoke while arriving at the 25th Annual Movieguide Awards, which celebrates faith-based and family movies.
Boone, who has enjoyed seven decades of stardom, claimed that many modern actors and actresses are destroying the industry by making ‘degraded’ films simply due to their liberal views.
‘Now, first of all, I don’t think that award shows are the place to express some narrow political view,’ he said when the subject of Streep’s speech was mentioned. ‘Now, it’s not narrow to her, or to most of that audience. But to most of America, who had elected a man that she detests and doesn’t wanna even give a chance to.’
Bone cited Trump’s Electoral College victory and his voters’ conviction that ‘he’s gonna lead us into a more moral and a more economically sound and military strong life. She doesn’t wanna give him even a chance, and she was acting like he was all but criminal and depraved. And, course, she got a big hand for it.’
He conceded: ‘Now, she’s a nice woman and a very talented woman. But I don’t think that an award show in front of millions of people is the place to vent your spleen about somebody that you disagree with politically. It just was wrong.’

Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a…..

Meryl Streep needs to learn that people have no interest in hearing the political views of actresses and actors during award shows. Hollywood’s elite are obsessed with tearing down Trump, and they are too quick to insult the millions of movie ticket-buying Americans who elected Trump in November 2016.
Thank you, Pat Boone, for standing up to Meryl Streep and the Hollywood left!
