Actress Meryl Streep believes Americans should be scared of President Donald Trump right now because his children are “in jeopardy.”
At the Montclair Film Festival’s “An Evening with Stephen Colbert” fundraiser in New Jersey over the weekend, Streep took the stage and dove immediately into politics and the subject of the current sitting president.
It wasn’t much of a surprise, since leftist late-night host Stephen Colbert introduced the actress by gabbing about politics and Trump.
He even referenced the president’s calling Streep “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.”
“I’m scared by [Trump],” the 69-year-old actress said to a crowd of nearly 3,000 when she took the stage.
She added, “I empathize with him. I can’t imagine what his 3 a.m. is like. There is a gathering storm. Everybody feels it. He feels it. His children are in jeopardy and I feel that. I think, what if my children were in jeopardy? I would do anything. Anything! To get them out of trouble. So we should be afraid.”- READ MORE
