Confirmed: Meryl Streep Is Awful

Last night during the 89th annual Academy Awards, host Jimmy Kimmel inadvertently provided evidence that Meryl Streep is overrated.

Here's a list of the things he jokingly said about the esteemed actress:

• We're also here to honor actors who seem great, but actually really aren't.

• One in particular has stood the test of time for her many uninspiring and overrated performances.

• Meryl Streep has phoned it in for more than 50 films in the course of her lackluster career.

• Please join me giving Meryl Streep a totally undeserved round of applause.

• The highly overrated Meryl Streep, everyone.

"All true. Meryl Streep, awful. It's over. It's been decided. She lost again, by the way. She's three of 18 now. If you're hitting 167 and remaining in the majors, let me know. But apparently Meryl is the greatest of all time," Co-host Stu Burguiere said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

STU: We were talking about the Oscars, and I was bringing up these guys. They didn't see any of it, which that is the right move. But there was one great moment with Meryl Streep. We can get the audio for later today. But I'm a big proponent of the fact that Meryl Streep is awful. In fact, as she was nominated for her Best Actress award, which she gets every year just like by mistake. Like they don't even know they're doing it. The nomination, she was -- they showed a clip of her movie. Which was -- do you remember the name of it? I don't know. It's an incomprehensible --

PAT: Was it the Florence Foster Jenkins?

STU: Yes. So there's a clip they play of all the movies --

PAT: It's a true story, by the way. It's an interesting story.

STU: The story is interesting. I would want to see it, if it's not for her.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Like I'd actually -- the story is interesting. It's about an heiress.

PAT: Terrible singer.

STU: But she had everyone around her -- they were all "yes" men.

PAT: And they tried to protect her.

STU: They tried to protect her and let her think that she was a good singer. So there's a point where she's singing and obviously singing horribly, which is the only thing she's capable of, by the way.

PAT: And she actually performed at Carnegie Hall, which had to be something else.

JEFFY: Come on.

STU: Exactly.

PAT: Because truly terrible.

STU: But they come back to Meryl Streep after showing the clip as they always do, and even Meryl Streep is embarrassed by Meryl Streep.

PAT: She's cringing?

STU: She's actually cringing by her own performance. It's incredible.

So last night --

JEFFY: Great.

PAT: It's great.

STU: -- Jimmy Kimmel does this joke, and he's joking, but what he says is everything that's true about Meryl Streep.

This is what he says: He says, we're here tonight to honor actors, but we're also here to honor actors who seem great, but actually really aren't.

(laughter)

STU: And of all the great actors here in Hollywood, one in particular has stood the test of time for her many uninspiring and overrated performances. From her mediocre early work in the Dear Hunter and Out of Africa, to her underwhelming performances in Cramer versus Cramer and Sophie's Choice, Meryl Streep has phoned it in for more than 50 films in the course of her lackluster career. This is Meryl's 20th Oscar nomination, made even more amazing considering the fact that she wasn't even in a movie this year. We just wrote her name down out of habit.

Meryl, stand up, if you would.

PAT: It's funny.

STU: Everyone please join me giving Meryl Streep a totally undeserved round of applause. The highly overrated Meryl Streep, everyone. We're going to have fun tonight. I hope we have fun tonight. Nice dress, by the way. Is that an Ivanka? Which is a funny ending to it.

PAT: Kind of funny.

STU: But all true. Meryl Streep, awful. It's over. It's been decided. She lost again, by the way. She's three of 18 now. If you're hitting 167 and remaining in the majors, let me know. But apparently Meryl is the greatest of all time.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
