Open Thread: Meryl Streep's Amazing Golden Globe Speech

Meryl Streep accepts the Cecil B. DeMille Award with a decidedly pointed speech at the incoming president.

It's hard to be more beloved or iconic as an actress than Meryl Streep.

And it's good to use that status to inject a little personal message amid the congratulations and laudatories of getting essentially a lifetime achievement award at tonight's Golden Globe awards.

"Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence".

"Take your broken heart and turn it into art."

It was a brutally honest, raw and powerful speech.

Be prepared for thin-skinned responses from the Orange One in 5...4...3...2...
