Meryl Streep dramatically warns people to be very afraid now that Donald Trump’s kids are ‘in jeopardy’

Meryl Streep admitted she is afraid of President Donald Trump, and warns that others should be, too.

The Academy Award-winning actress explained that her fear comes from a place of empathy with how he must be feeling with some of his children being “in jeopardy” under Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Streep, a frequent critic of the president, spoke Saturday to an audience of about 2,800 at an event at New Jersey’s Performing Arts Center titled, “An Evening with Stephen Colbert,” Fox News reported.

She told “The Late Show host” Stephen Colbert, that she is “scared” by Trump and his thoughts about his adult children, Eric Trump, Donald Jr. and Ivanka, in light of Mueller reportedly looking into the role of Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr.in a real estate deal for a Trump Tower Moscow.

“I’m scared by (Trump),” Streep told Colbert during the Montclair Film Festival talk.

“By his possibility,” she said. “I empathize with him.”

“I can’t imagine what his 3 a.m. is like. There is a gathering storm. Everybody feels it. He feels it. His children are in jeopardy and I feel that,” she explained.  “I think, what if my children were jeopardy? I would do anything. Anything! To get them out of trouble. So we should be afraid.”

Colbert introduced the 69-year-old actress to the audience as the “greatest living actor of our generation,” but then added Trump’s characterization of her as “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.” Streep had slammed the president after receiving a lifetime achievement award at the 2017 Golden Globes show.

While Streep’s fans on the left hung on her every word, many on Twitter blasted the actress for her comments and the audacity to think the rest of the world cares what she thinks.
