Barbra Streisand fired shots at President Trump in a new music video for her single, “Don’t Lie to Me.”
The video, which made it’s debut on YouTube this Tuesday, portrays the United States in chaos under Trump, with flashes of protesters and former President Obama in tears.
The song, which was first released back in Septemeber, is a part of Streisand’s new album “Walls.”
The legendary songstress informed Time magazine in an interview that she was inspired to create the political track after being affected by the “very troubling times” in the nation since Trump took office.
“The leader of the free world doesn’t seem to care much about truth, and he’s chipping away at the pillars of democracy, like freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press. I believe in the power of the truth, and I can’t stand being lied to,” she detailed to the magazine. “I don’t think the country should be lied to either.”
“I was very driven by this president’s lies. And that’s why this first song is ‘Don’t Lie to Me,’” she continued.
“If you listen to it at first,” Streisand added, about the song, “maybe it could be a relationship — a woman walks into a room and sees her husband with another woman and says, ‘Who are you gonna believe? Me or my lyin’ eyes?’”
“To me, being lied to is very personal, very deep, because I was lied to as a child,” she added. “But this is a president now … I think the total is over 5,000 lies. And I just don’t understand how the public or even his party lets him get away with that.”
