Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, Amber Tamblyn and More Tell Donald Trump ‘It’s Not Okay’ in Liz Garbus–Directed Video

Trump's "locker-room talk" excuse isn't going over well.

You can add Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham to the long list of public figures unimpressed by Donald Trump’s “locker-room talk” excuse. The three actresses all appear in a new video directed by Liz Garbus called “It’s Not Okay,” which consists mainly of women (some of them teenagers) describing their experiences with rape and sexual assault.

“I think people like Donald Trump will never understand the correlation that women understand between words and actions,” one of them says. “Especially when you’re a man in a position of power and you talk that way publicly and say those things, you are telling everyone that it’s okay to behave that way.” Garbus’ prior work includes the documentaries “What Happened, Miss Simone?” and “Bobby Fischer Against the World.”

Great film. I’ve successfully raised a now 48 yr. old daughter and still feel as close to her when she used to call me Daddy to now when she calls me Dad. I was surprised at my reaction to this short film because I started choking up and tears began to run from my eyes and I just cried. That human beings treat other human beings this way is beyond unacceptable. I’m an old jock high school football star and I’ve never heard this kind of talk in locker rooms or from men while I served in the Army. Trump is what we used to consider a real jerk; a dork; a dweeb and one of us would have probably put a knot on his head had we heard him talk like he did in this tape. Same for the Billy Bush guy. Both real nerdy dorks who are very immature and very insecure guys. It just broke my heart to hear these women in this short film. That all….all…women have been through these kinds of rude, crude and physical abuses to them. That’s a real sorry state of affairs and anyone who would vote or support the likes of jerks like Trump need to have their heads examined!
