The year was 2017 and the country was awaiting the inauguration of the 45th president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
It was only a year ago at the 2017 Golden Globes that Meryl Streep delivered her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award and, in the process, lambasted the incoming president without ever uttering his name.
“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” Streep said.
