A woman who stood up alone and cheered on a convicted — and admitted — child rapist is now the forefront of the Anti-Trump movement by entertainment elites.
Renowned actress Meryl Streep used the Golden Globes ceremony to trash Donald Trump and give middle America the finger.
But it wasn’t so long ago Streep jumped to her feet to give convicted child rapist Roman Polanski a standing ovation, The American Mirror reports.
In 2003, Polanski won the Best Director Oscar for “The Pianist” — but he wasn’t in attendance to accept his Oscar because he was living in Switzerland, out of the reach of U.S. extradition.
The New York Daily News explained Polanski’s 1978 deeds:
The French-born director, who fled the United States in 1978 after a highly publicized sexual assault case, has for the first time publicly apologized to the victim of his attack.
“She is a double victim: my victim, and a victim of the press,” the 78-year-old filmmaker said of Samantha Geimer, who was a 13-year-old model when Polanski, then 43, drugged and raped her.
When he made the declaration, Polanski was on camera. His confession was part of filmmaker Laurent Bouzereau‘s “Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir,” a documentary that premiered Tuesday at the Zurich Film Festival, according to ABC News.
This is an unfortunate face for the opposition of Donald Trump.
