Meryl Streep is certainly making her voice heard this election year. The Summit native spoke out at the Democratic National Convention in July and now is trying to get another Hollywood star to vote for Hillary Clinton.
Clint Eastwood recently defended Donald Trump saying he would vote for republican presidential candidate over Clinton. “I’d have to go for Trump … you know, [because] she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in [President] Obama’s footsteps,” he said in an August 3 interview with Esquire. “I mean, it’s a tough voice to listen to for four years. It could be a tough one. If she’s just gonna follow what we’ve been doing, then I wouldn’t be for her.”
These comments stunned Streep. “I’m shocked, I really am. Because he’s more — I would have thought he would be more sensitive than that,” she said in an interview published by Variety on Monday. “I’ll have to speak to him. I’ll have to correct that.”
