Barbra Streisand is hitting President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump announces new social media network called 'TRUTH Social' Virginia State Police investigating death threat against McAuliffe Meadows hires former deputy AG to represent him in Jan. 6 probe: report MORE in a music video for her new single, "Don't Lie to Me.”
The video, which was shared on YouTube Tuesday, depicts a United States in turmoil under Trump, with images of protests and citizens including former President Obama in tears.
The song, which initially debuted last month, is a part of Streisand's upcoming album "Walls."
The 76-year-old Oscar winner told Time magazine in a recent interview that she was inspired to make the politically charged track given the “very troubling times” in the nation under Trump.
“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 told 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 added.
“If you listen to it at first,” Streisand continued, referring to 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 continued. “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.”
Streisand’s new album is slated for release on Nov. 2, just before Election Day.
Streisand, an outspoken Democrat, has criticized Trump throughout his presidency and blasted him as a “disgrace” in a fundraising pitch released by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee earlier this year.
