Ron Howard Has A Reminder For Trump Fans Who Are Bashing Meryl Streep

After Trump called Meryl Streep overrated for her criticism of him, director Ron Howard showed exactly how hypocritical he was being.

Donald Trump is always ranting about Hollywood and its “liberal movie people,” but he seems to have forgotten that he himself was once a reality TV star.

Now, director Ron Howard is giving the president-elect and his fans a lesson about hypocrisy.

At the 2017 Golden Globes, legendary actress Meryl Streep gave a phenomenal speech that condemned Trump’s divisive rhetoric without even naming him. Trump did not disappoint and just a few hours later lashed out with his tweets.



Soon after, Howard noted that Trump, who produced the reality TV show “The Apprentice,” had used his own celebrity platform to talk about a myriad of political issues and even spread baseless rumors about President Obama’s place of birth. But now that the shoe is on the other foot, he expects other celebrities to not criticize him for his outrageous behavior. Howard called out Trump fans and asked how they could vote for a celebrity businessman, yet tell other celebrities to stay out of politics.



The Oscar-winning director ended by condemning Trump for calling Streep “overrated” and advising him to show some maturity while preparing for his inauguration on Jan. 20.


He basically repeated the same sentiments that other people have been saying for a year: “Grow up, Donald Trump.” But since the president-elect hasn’t bothered to listen to others, it is doubtful that he will give any significant attention to Howard’s advice either — except to go on a Twitter rant against the director too.

Howard isn’t the only Hollywood celebrity to take offense at Trump’s description of Streep and come out in support of her.
