Meryl Streep Delivers Passionate Speech As Alicia Keys Performs for Hillary Clinton
Meryl Streep wore an American flag to the DNC.
The Into the Woods actress delivered a passionate speech during the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night (July 26, 2016). She took the stage shortly after Hillary Clinton was officially named the Democratic presidential nominee to confidently declare that the 68-year-old will be named America’s first woman president in November.
“What does it take to be the first female anything? It takes grit and it takes grace,” she began. Hillary Clinton has taken some fire over 40 years of her fight for families and children. How does she do it? That’s what I want to know. Where does she get her grit and grace? Where do any of our female firsts, our path makers, where do they find that strength?”
