Fox News host Greg Gutfeld roasted Hollywood celebrities during a monologue on "The Five" Monday after the movie and television stars took turns Sunday during the Golden Globes award show to publicly voice their displeasure with President-elect Donald Trump.

Movie star Meryl Streep's nearly six-minute speech received the most attention after she rehashed a Trump controversy from 2015 when the then-Republican presidential candidate allegedly mocked a disabled New York Times reporter.

Sunday's award show host, Jimmy Fallon, also joked several times about Trump, including comparing him to a murderous character on the hit-TV show "Game of Thrones" and mocking him for losing the popular vote to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

According to Gutfeld, the Golden Globes has become a safe space for Hollywood celebrities.

"Humor is the best therapy for broken, emotionally fragile millionaires," he said. "This was basically a group hug after getting spanked in November."

Gutfeld also responded to Streep's claims that Hollywood celebrities are the most "vilified" people in American society.

"Yes, they're the victims, the 'deplorables' if you will," Gutfeld quipped.

During her speech, Streep also said that if Trump starts to deport all of the foreign movie actors, then America will lose their art industry because football and mixed martial arts "are not the arts."

But according to Gutfeld, Streep's message about football and MMA was really just a jab at middle-America.

"Football and MMA were simply proxies for a certain America that she was mocking," Gutfeld said. "Trump is not trying to deport the cast of 'Girls' — though we can dream."
