“Don’t Lie to Me”
Barbra is Watching Drumpf
One of my of all time, favorite music icons is using her platform to express her feelings about the reality which the ‘squatter in the White House’ has with the truth and with facts.
One awesome voice speaking for many of us!!
Barbra Streisand is always watching Drumpf
When we spoke, she had just tweeted about him and read it aloud:
“All President Trump cares about is winning.
He said it during his campaign, and he says it now.
But what do we all lose as he wins?”
Streisand, no stranger to politics throughout her career, is releasing her first album of original songs since 2005, called Walls, on November 2.
Late last month, she released the album’s first single, “Don’t Lie to Me,” which is a direct address to the president. And on Tuesday, Streisand released the music video – the first she’s ever directed – complete with images of protests and even a sign somewhere in there that says “Stop Kavanaugh.”
“I’m just so concerned with our country and the world,” she said. “When I say in the song ‘we all lose,’ do we lose our integrity as a nation? Do we lose our reputation in the world? One of the songs talks about a beacon of light, and ‘Lady Liberty’ talked about the danger in the sound of silence, when people don’t speak up, when people don’t vote. And now we have a leader who can’t be trusted. The way he pushed Kavanaugh onto the Supreme Court to protect himself is unconscionable; we have a leader and now a Supreme Court justice who tells lies.”
She added that it’s the young people of this country who are already living out the message of her new album and who have already set the example of what good activism looks like.
“As I say in the booklet of the new album, I’ve been especially moved by the young people in the United States who have found their voice and are demanding to be heard,” she said.
“They’re more interested in building bridges than walls; they are the very definition of hope.
They’re on my mind, and I dedicate this album to them.”
