Barbra Streisand compared President Trump to the nursery-rhyme character Humpty Dumpty in a recent interview, calling him a fat egg, sitting on a wall, and one day hes going to fall off the wall.
"And crack, added the singer and actress, a longtime critic of Trump, in an interview with The Guardian released on Friday.
Streisands interview with the publication was one of her latest stops in an ongoing promotional tour for her new album, "Walls."
Though the new album doesnt mention Trump anywhere by name, Streisand made clear in the interview that much of the project links to a broader theme about the danger she believes the president poses to America.
This is whats on my mind, she says. This is a dangerous time in this nation, this republic: a man who is corrupt and indecent and is assaulting our institutions. Its really, really frightening. And I just pray that people who are compassionate and respect the truth will come out and vote.
The Academy Award winner went on to clarify that shes saying more than just vote but to also vote for Democrats.
Vote for what they want their country to look like and feel like and be like. And treat each other with kindness and respect I have friends who are Republicans and we have dinner and agree to disagree, Streisand continued.
Facts matter, she said. Words have meaning. This man defies that. He says climate change is a hoax. Lets release more coal and carbon into the air and have more megafires and hurricanes. I mean hes so stupid! Hes so ill-informed. Liar is not enough of a word. There must be a bigger word for someone who lies about everything.
When asked if she was anxious the president will come after her given his propensity to slam his critics on Twitter, Streisand told the publication she doesnt know but thats the chance you take.
The country is more important to me at this point than whether my album sells. Im sure 'Dont Lie to Me' turns off a lot of people who are Republicans or right-wingers, she said. But there are some good Republicans! I was friendly with John McCain. Im friendly with Colin Powell.
Maybe he doesnt think Im powerful enough. Ive seen him in the film of people in my audience maybe hes a big fan! Streisand added with a laugh. I dont know.
The singer captured headlines earlier this month after releasing a music video of her new single, Dont Lie to Me, which depicted a United States in turmoil under Trump, with images of protests and citizens including former President Obama in tears.
You have to write lyrics that can be more than just a protest, she said of the song in the Friday interview. They have to appeal to a universal audience. Even when I wrote 'Dont Lie to Me,' at first I thought, well, I could make you think its like a love affair, a marriage breaking up. Its a universal thought: dont lie to me.
Streisands new album is slated for release on Nov. 2, just before Election Day.
The 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.
They then use the interview as a platform to get free publicity by making outlandish comments.
This is a classic example.
Ms. Streisand has a new album and she goes political for free publicity.
I don't generally post celebrity chatter but I believe everyone should be aware of this Hollywood game of product promotion and product placement that masquerades as 'political' celebrity news.
-—I was friendly with John McCain. Im friendly with Colin Powell. ——
I’m stunned!!!! LOL
Still cross-eyed, Babs?
Nowhere in that song is Humpty referred to as an egg. Using that logic we can infer that The Way We Were is really a secret ballad Streisand is singing to her 3 legged hermaphroditic billygoat lover from her lonely teen years?
She is an Eye-Dee-Ten-Tee
Fake Singer, fake Hollywood, Fake News and Fake Bombs.
Barbra Streisand is still alive???
But there are some good Republicans! I was friendly with John McCain. Im friendly with Colin Powell.
Baba is as cracked as her voice.
Real singer, real idiot, real nose, real ugly
Apparently so. And as hideous as ever.
Horse face should really think twice about throwing stones from the porch of her glass house. She’s ugly to the bone
Nice by-line on your FR handle.
That was a Babs quirk.
One of her many conditions for singing at LV’s MGM Grand was that they provide an attendant putting ROSE PETALS in her toilet water.
Not once, no. I mean EVERY time that toilet got flushed, and that toilet was only for her.
The MGM retorted that their piping was old and wouldn’t permit the extra volume.
Babs held firm “Replace the piping”.
AND THEY DID..!
So you thought about lying to your audience and now you're just lying to yourself, Babs. Don't flatter yourself. You're no Bob Dylan. That song is pure rage over Donald Trump... feel the hate seethe.
The new Helen Thomas...
Cross-eyed, B.S. says T is fat egg who will fall and crack
1)cross-eyed: I’m not a hypocrite about the fact that it looked good on the late Karen Black.
2)fat and crack: Does this mean Rosie O’Donnell and Amy Schumer should fear for their safety and stop smoking crack at leftist dope parties? She should spell that out.
