Being Babs: Streisand debuts anti-Trump video, “Dont’ Lie to Me”

Speaking of liars:

From Hollywood Reporter: Barbra Streisand is getting political once again. This morning, the 76-year-old Oscar-winner premiered a music video for her new single “Don’t Lie to Me” on her YouTube channel. The political video depicts images of protests, President Donald Trump and the president speaking in contradictions.

The singer-songwriter had dropped a few hints on her Instagram account of when the music video would become available to view, including a photo of what appears to be a Brett Kavanaugh protest accompanied with the lyric “Can’t you see I’m crying.”

“Don’t Lie to Me,” which debuted back in September, is a single off of her upcoming album Walls.

Streisand told the Associated Press the inspiration for the politically-charged single came during a road trip. While in the car the singer was “listening to lies, listening to things that are such craziness,” on the news about Trump and his administration, which made her feel ill.

A lifelong Democrat, Streisand, is no stranger to politics. She has campaigned and donated funds to many Democratic politicians — most recently, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run — throughout her lifetime.

Streisand’s album Walls will be released Nov. 2.

Barbra Streisand ponders 'what might have been' with Clinton

Streisand has a yearning…


Ponder away Babs…
From USA Today: NEW YORK (AP) — Barbra Streisand usually talks to her audience, but Saturday night she had a special message for two guests: Bill and Hillary Clinton. Streisand gave former president and former Democratic presidential candidate much more than a shout out at her concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, her hometown.
She noted that she performed at President Clinton’s inauguration and then went on to list his accomplishments, including lowering taxes for some and raising taxes on the rich. “And speaking of taxes, he showed us his tax returns,” she said, a dig at Republican President Donald Trump, who has refused to release his.
She also introduced Hillary Clinton as “the winner of our country’s popular vote.”
She later talked about hearing a recent interview by Hillary Clinton and said it “makes us yearn for what could have been, what should have been. I was thrilled to hear yourself describe yourself as an activist citizen and part of the resistance.”
Taking another shot at Trump and his tweeting habits, she quipped: “Usually when a man that age is up at 4 a.m., he forgot to take his Flomax,” referring to a medication to treat the prostate.
Despite the Trump barbs, she called for a bridging of the political divide before breaking into Happy Days Are Here Again.
Streisand had been a longtime Democratic fundraiser and supporter, and friend of the Clintons. Streisand, who recently turned 75, was doing two dates in the New York City area, calling it a mini-tour. She hinted it could be her last. When the audience moaned, she shrugged her shoulders and said, “You know — other things to do.”
