Steyn: Oprah 'Appropriated #MeToo to Herself' At a High 'Skill Level'
Conservative author Mark Steyn reacted to Oprah Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globe Awards, on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
He said that while most of the star-filled audience displayed support for the #MeToo movement - bringing attention to sexual harassment - Winfrey did it best.
Steyn said Winfrey was "the least idiotic person at that awards ceremony last night."
"She was crafty and cunning in the way she tied her personal story to this #MeToo business," he said.
He said speeches like Winfrey's made him feel bad for Harvey Weinstein's alleged victims, in the way he felt bad for those "that had been sexually abused [in England] by these Muslim grooming gangs, while opportunist activists and politicians turned the scandal into a way to advance themselves."
He said Winfrey "appropriated [#MeToo] to herself... at a skill level that's way beyond [other activist actresses like] Meryl Streep or any of those other ladies."
Steyn also recalled how Winfrey invoked Bahamian-American actor Sidney Poitier, the first black actor to win the award for Best Actor, in her speech as a way to discuss America's "challenges."
