Meryl Streep refuses to mention Israel

So who is the bigot now?

Meryl Streep has been accused of being 'anti-Israel' after she said Natalie Portman was from Jerusalem at the Golden Globes.

Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, had launched a blistering attack on Donald Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars.

But while the president-elect may have been the target, the three-time Oscar winner managed to insult football, MMA and now, according to some, the state of Israel, which has battled with the State of Palestine for decades over ownership of Jerusalem.

Attacking Trump's divisive rhetoric towards immigrants, Streep said that 'Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners.'

'The beautiful Ruth Negga was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and was raised in Ireland... Ryan Gosling, like all the nicest people is Canadian. And Dev Patel was born in Kenya, raised in London, is here playing an Indian, raised in Tasmania.

'Sarah Paulson was born in Florida... Amy Adams was born in Vicenzia, Italy, and Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem. Where are their birth certificates?

Some have pounced on the fact that Streep chose to only mention that Portman was from the world famous city of Jerusalem, and not the country of Israel.

Anti-Israel and anti-Zionists do not recognize Israel's ownership of East Jerusalem which occurred after the 1967 Six-Day War, and was sanctified again in the 1980 Jerusalem Law proclamation, which declared a 'complete and united' Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Liberals only recognize facts that they agree with. If they do not agree it's called "Fake News"

"If they do not agree it's called "Fake News""

Uh... Trump use that term quite often. Is he a liberal? (refer to his Press Conference if you don't believe it)

Award shows are a total waste of our good time to bother to watch a bunch of over piad celeberties star in shows that make very little cash and awards are only for the most far left in hollywood anyway

Award shows are mutual masturbation orgies. Streeps comments just confirm it.
