Barbra Streisand tackles Trump on album

Never one to shy away from the political, Barbra Streisand has a potent message for President Trump in a new song from her upcoming album: “Don’t Lie to Me.”

“I just can’t stand what’s going on,” the music legend told the Associated Press in an interview. “His assault on our democracy, our institutions, our founders – I think we’re in a fight. We’re in a war for the soul of America.”

Released Thursday morning, “Don’t Lie to Me” is the first preview of Streisand’s next album, “Walls,” and its lyrics directly address Trump: “Why can’t you just tell me the truth?” and “How can you win if we all lose?”

Even though those words could just as easily be found in a lovelorn torch song, Streisand assured Vogue that her new song is indeed about Trump.

During the run-up to the 2016 election, Streisand performed a parody version of Stephen Sondheim’s “Send in the Clowns,” recast to mock Trump, at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser.

In January 2017, she penned an essay for Huffington Post titled “Clueless, Reckless, Graceless, Mindless and Heartless: Our President-Elect.” Shocker: It was not complimentary.
