This is how I feel.
I like Meryl Streep. Did not like her speech, but unlike others, I will not say shut up. And this open letter doesn't either

I like Meryl Streep . She's intelligent and is not afraid to express her thoughts .
I respect her and support everything she said in her speech. It was an ideal opportunity and venue in which to speak out on this subject.'
I applaud her .

It wasn't the point of the post.
It's a different perspective of what someone thought of her speech and the letter wasn't rude or nasty.

It's a shame you did not post the letter . Anyway - the author fails to recognize that Meryl was not performing . She was not playing a role . We saw her . The person . That was her truth that she shared . That was Meryl the person . Not Meryl playing a character . 

She did not attack trump . She stood up and was a voice for many who have been silenced . Real actual people . Truth .

I feel that you have to stand up to bigotry, racism, antisemitism. Islamophobia, mysogyny, and the KKK and other neo-nazi groups,   to stand up to people who mock the disabled, say that POWs are not heroes because they got caught, and stand up for Gold Star families, not put them down because they believe in a different religion. and stand up for the constitution. She took the opportunity and her celebrity to do just that.   All the people, all of them, who voted for Trump voted in support of or lack of support for the people I just mentioned.  There is no excuse for how they voted - it is atrocious and despicable and the letter to me is just another cover for the people who voted this way.  "Oh we voted for him because we wanted someone to clean up the white house and govt", etc.  It's a load of bullshit.  There is nothing that he has said or done that would support the other reasons people say they voted for him.  He is a disgusting, illiterate,dangerous, moron and everyone who voted for him, put that pig in the White House, along with his racist, misogynist, greedy cronies.

I think the author of this open letter is very histrionic and played his role rather poorly.

I do understand the pressures of long-term depression, but Trump is ultimately inexcusable. Streep was definitely in the right.

Writing a public letter asking for empathy for voting for Trump? Histrionic & poorly played.
