Streisand: Female Trump voters 'don’t believe enough in their own thoughts'

“A lot of women vote the way their husbands vote,” the singer tells the Daily Mail’s "Weekend" magazine in its November issue.

Streisand’s remarks about female voters echoed controversial comments Clinton made back in March at a conference in India, when she suggested that women who voted for Trump were “motivated by ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”

Streisand — a frequent critic of Trump — said the 2016 election was so “devastating” to her that it propelled her to pen her latest album, “Walls.”

“It was perfect timing, so I just did it,” she says.

“I believe in truth and that if I’m truthful in what I’m singing about that comes across as being passionately upset with what is happening to my country,” Streisand told the magazine.

“I love my country,” says the Oscar winner, “and it’s painful to see democracy being assaulted, institutions being assaulted and women being assaulted.”

“There’s a war between people who want to live in the future and look forward to the future, and people who want to live in the past.”
