Meryl Streep Gave to 27 State Democratic Parties in 2016
She stole the show. Meryl Streep sure knows how to impact an audience and she did it again at tonight's Golden Globes show.
Her speech taking Donald Trump to task for a few of his vile sins was a fabulous example of how to creatively resist the man who is not my president.
I checked her FEC records and learned that in 2016, part of the money she donated to either Hillary Clinton or Democratic National Committee went to twenty-seven state Democratic central committees.
While the amount to each state committee was small, $365 to be exact, the symbolism of the donations is huge. Thanks, Meryl, for wisely using your platform to hold the powerful and pitiful Trump to account.
