Meryl Streep, a long-time friend of Harvey Weinstein, recently attacked the first lady and first daughter for being “silent” on sexual assault.
Streep was pressed by the New York Times for her perceived silence over disgraced movie Mogul Harvey Weinstein’s horrific sexual assaults on women. Streep, who once called Weinstein “God,” has starred in a number of Weinstein movies over multiple decades.
In the interview, Streep doubled down on the claim that she had no knowledge of Weinstein’s behavior. When she was pressed further about her years of silence on Weinstein’s open secret, she lashed out at the first lady and first daughter. Streep told the interviewer:
I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about the silence of Melania Trump. I want to hear from her. She has so much that’s valuable to say. And so does Ivanka. I want her to speak now.
Ivanka Trump has served as an outspoken advocate for sexual assault victims.
