An Open Letter To Meryl Streep
Hey everyone, I’m James. You might have seen my name from time to time, and I want to thank you all for reading this. Ever since Meryl Streep walked out before the world and called every Donald Trump supporter the names that were called, I have been sitting on an idea.
The idea was to write an open letter to Meryl Streep that maybe encapsulates how some of you might be feeling about this haughty pain in the ass and how I feel about this whole situation. So here goes nothing:
Meryl, if you could come down from you ivory tower for a moment we here down on planet Earth would like to talk to you for a moment. Strike that, we don’t really want to talk to you. It’s more of a duty to talk to you because the idea of talking to you willfully makes me pray for deafness. Anyway I’ve got some things on behalf of the “little folk” that I would like to get off my chest. First thing, don’t act like what you do is so damn hard. Please, sixteen hours laying cement or plumbing is a hell of a lot harder than playing pretend the nine or ten minutes a day that you aren’t in your trailer while your body double does all of your shots for you.
My kids can play pretend for God’s sake and they don’t have the air of pretentiousness that you and your comrades in Hollywood seem to have. If you really think that you are going to be affected by any of the problems that you think Donald Trump being in office is going to bring upon, quite lying to yourself. You’re rich…you can throw money at just about anything you want!
Added to that, your speech the other night…brilliant performance. Seriously brilliant, you should win an award for it. I can’t quite figure out one thing though; whether it was a death scene or you were playing the village idiot. Oh brother, that line about how mixed martial arts not really being the arts was classic. Unless you weren’t acting and you’re suddenly the mayor of the arts now. Back to that on a moment…
If you want to get real technical about it, art is anything you say it is. A wonderfully baked loaf of bread is art if you want to get down to the finer points of it. I’ve seen carpenters for example put together some beautiful pieces of furniture. Does the fact that a carpenter perform their duties without an audience make what they not do an art?
Now, the whole mixed martial arts thing….I’m not quite sure what you were going for there. You sounded every bit like the guy that thinks he’s smart for making fun of a person for not knowing things they themselves just found out the previous evening. I bet you have a stack of books that you never read, probably just for the purpose of making people think you’re smart because that’s smart people read. But back to MMA, anytime someone goes through years of training to become a top of the line ANYTHING; it makes them an artist in their field.
In closing, I would just like to say that your repeated insults at people just because they supported the candidate you didn’t like are more vile and more vulgar than anything you have ever falsely accused Donald Trump of. So on behalf myself and all of those people I say go to hell Meryl Streep and try to reform things down there; because we’re doing just fine up here.
