The queen has spoken! Barbra Streisand tore into Donald Trump over claims he’ll help the middle class if elected. Babs blasted the GOP candidate, saying he’s ‘cheated’ the ‘little guy’ all his life while Hillary Clinton has spent years helping them out!
“When a politician ends almost every sentence with ‘believe me’ … don’t! He’s probably lying,” Barbra, 74, wrote at the beginning of her Sept. 22 Op-Ed for the Huffington Post. During the scathing takedown of Donald, 70, Babs brought up how PoltiFact found that his statements are “false,” “mostly false” and “Pants On Fire” for 71% of the time. So, when he says he’ll help “Make America Great Again” for the working class, the “People” singer isn’t buying it.
“This is a man who has bankrupted companies, reneged on bank loans, and cheated small business owners,” the Academy Award winning singer actress wrote. “For someone who claims to be a champion of the people, his [record] is actually to stiff the little guy. Trump is notorious for refusing to pay painters, carpenters, plumbers and all sorts of vendors the money he owes them.”
“And this man has the nerve to insult Hillary,” wrote Babs, bringing up how Hillary, 68, has “always cared about other people. From the time she was in college, she’s been working to improve the lives of others… women, children, minorities.”
Barbra cited how Hillary got legislation passed to expand veterans’ health care and benefits when she was a New York senator and as secretary of state, she “negotiated with leaders around the world” to prevent nuclear war. “What has Donald Trump ever done to serve others? He only cares about promoting himself.”
Babs is clearly not fond of what she sees as Donald’s life of hypocrisy. Speaking of which, in Barbra’s furious letter, she didn’t mention how three models claim that the Trump Model Management forced them to work as illegal immigrants in the United States. With Donald making immigration a key point of his campaign (remember that “Build A Wall, Make Mexico Pay For It” plan?) this would be another thing Trump has done to make Barbra see red. Yikes.
What do you think about Barbra’s letter, HollywoodLifers? Do you agree with her? Do you think she’s right in saying Donald talks about helping the little person while Hillary has actually done it?
