As the "Me Too" movement gained national attention following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, focus was shifted to previous allegations of sexual assault and harassment at the hands of Donald Trump. During the 2018 #Golden Globes, the president became a hot topic [VIDEO].

Trump on display

Donald Trump's political feud with #Hollywood started shortly after he kicked off his campaign [VIDEO] for president and made insulting remarks about illegal immigrants from Mexico. As expected, the more liberal-leaning Hollywood didn't take too kind to his message, as celebrities in the world of movies, music, and sports spoke out in opposition.

During last year's Golden Globes, veteran actress Meryl Streep gained headlines during a six-minute speech while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille. The reaction to Streep's speech was positive from those who oppose the president, and predictably panned by Trump supporters. In the year since Trump's election win, Hollywood has only come down harder on the commander in chief, with criticism intensifying during the rise of the "Me Too" movement and the greater sense of awareness around sexual harassment and assault allegations. As seen during 75th annual Golden Globe Awards on January 7, Trump was once again a hot topic [VIDEO].

Kicking off his opening monologue, host #Seth Meyers took time to mock Donald Trump.

At one point, Meyers pointed to actor Seth Rogen who once starred in the film "The Interview" where he played a TV host looking to report on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. ":Remember when he was the guy who was making trouble with North Korea?" Meyers said in an obvious shot at the president, before adding, "Simpler times."

Seth Meyers then went on to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press, before taking another shot at Donald Trump for his feud with Hollywood, foreigners, and the mainstream media. "A string of three words that could not have been better designed to infuriate our president," Meyers added, before stating, "Hollywood. Foreign. Press. The only name that would make him angrier would be the 'Hillary Mexican Salad Association.'" Towards the end of his speech, Meyers gave a shout out to Oprah Winfrey and hinted that she should run for president in 2020.

Moving forward

Donald Trump is not well-received in Hollywood, and if the Golden Globes are any inclination about how the future will turn out, he won't be in their good graces anytime soon. While that appears to be the case, supporters of the president have been vocal in their boycott of Hollywood, often taking to social media to rip into celebrities who they believe are far too liberal and hypocritical to be taken seriously. With Trump's second year in office getting started, only time will tell how the next year plays out.
