Meryl Streep’s amazing tribute to Hillary Clinton
Oh, this is wonderful.
Three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep was the ideal choice to give a moving, informative and sometimes very funny speech paying tribute to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at Newsweek and The Daily Beast’s third annual Women in the World Summit this weekend at Lincoln Center.
If you have time, I encourage you to watch the whole thing – it’s a real gem.
And at the end, there’s a fun moment where Meryl brings out the Oscar she won recently for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady and says: “This is what you get when you play a world leader.”
There is wild applause.
Then she says as she points to Clinton as she walks onto the stage: “But if you want the real world leader, THIS is what you get.”
Both such remarkable women.
