While Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers chimed in with their takes defending Streep, Noah had a slightly more controversial view during Monday night’s episode… because although he understands where Meryl was coming from, he thinks she went about it all wrong!
The Daily Show host started off his Globes recap by talking about that whole Hidden Figures/Fences mix-up before sharing his take on Meryl’s speech, saying:
“I understand what Meryl Streep was trying to do, and I don’t know if I could’ve done better in that moment, but here’s the thing I feel like we could all learn as people. You don’t have to make your point by sh*tting on someone else’s thing, because a lot of people love football and the arts.”
That is a good point…
However, Trevor made sure to praise the overall great message that Miz Streep was sending, adding:
“It was a speech about respect, it was a speech about empathy, and most importantly it was a speech about responsibility.”
And that’s why she’s our queen!
Ch-ch-check out Trevor’s criticism of Meryl’s speech at the 4:00 mark and let us know if you agree with TDS host’s viewpoint (below)!!!
