Barbra Streisand Releases Music Video For Her New Anti-Trump Single ‘Don’t Lie To Me’

Barbra Streisand has a new album, Walls, out Nov. 2, and its first single makes a big political statement.

The song, “Don’t Lie to Me”, takes aim at none other than Donald Trump. Though the U.S. president is unnamed, the song references a man who “changes facts to justify” his position.

Streisand has now released the official music video for the track, which is the first that she’s ever directed.

Give it a watch in the clip above.

The video comes after Streisand told Billboard in an interview: “The Liar in Chief, the Groper in Chief. Yeah, I’ve written many articles about this… this person… who has no manners, insults everybody, makes fun of disabled people.”

She added, “It’s my protest, in a sense, about this unprecedented time in our history. What it says about America.”

In another interview with TIME, Streisand said, “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.”

The 76-year-old also spoke about the stress she feels living under President Trump.

“The stress is crippling; it gives me a headache,” she said. “I don’t like the way I feel. But when you hear this warped view of reality, it’s all the more frustrating. And who’s going to speak up?”

Still, Streisand said she is hopeful America will be able to overcome its current state.

“I hope we find a way to tear down walls and build more bridges instead,” she said.
