Meryl Streep’s attack on Donald Trump at the Golden Globes for appearing to imitate a disabled reporter has been dismissed as hypocrisy by Margaret Thatcher’s official biographer.

British journalist Charles Moore, who has so far published two volumes of Thatcher’s biography, pointed out that the Democrat-supporting Streep “did very well out of imitating a vulnerable person in public” when she won an Oscar for playing Thatcher as a dementia sufferer in The Iron Lady, the 2011 biopic of the Conservative British prime minister.

Because Streep portrayed Thatcher, who was still alive when the film was released, in this way without consulting the politician’s family, Moore said Streep should “be careful when she speaks about disrespect for the afflicted” – the charge Streep laid at Trump’s door in her acceptance speech at the Globes.
