"American Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis lashed out at Hollywood liberals and their "childish meltdowns" over President Donald Trump, charging they are blaming their own neuroses on the president.

In a 35-minute monologue on his latest podcast, first flagged by The Wrap, the writer said coastal elites are testing his patience.

"You can dislike the fact that Trump was elected, yes, definitely, and yet still understand and accept ultimately that he was elected this time around," he said. "Or you can have a complete mental and emotional collapse and let the Trump presidency define you, which I think is absurd."

"If you are still losing your s— about Trump, I think you should probably go to a shrink and not let the bad man that was elected define your self-victimization and your life," he added. "You are letting him win.

"Barbra Streisand says she's gaining weight because of Trump. Lena Dunham says she's losing weight because of Trump. Really? You're blaming the president for your own problems and neuroses?"

He also blasted Meryl Streep for using her Golden Globe speech in January to talk about Trump.

"Instead of talking about all the filmmakers she had worked with and who had passed away in the last two years — Michael Cimino, Mike Nichols, Nora Ephron, or especially what it was like playing Carrie Fisher in 'Postcards From the Edge,' since Fisher had died just two weeks earlier, Streep used this moment to go on an anti-Trump rant for 10 minutes on national TV, instead of eulogizing her friend — again, reinstating the moral superiority of the left and ignoring aesthetics in place of ideology,” he said.
