Barbra Streisand: Republicans ‘Want an Authoritarian State’
left-wing political advocate Barbra Streisand took to social media Sunday to warn the world against the Republican Party, saying it seeks to install “an authoritarian state.”
“Trump has promised to ‘make America great again.’ What makes America great is when our government is as good as our people, and acts with compassion and decency and humility,” she wrote. “He has failed this test already in his first 40 days.”
At a pricey New York City fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in June of that year, the singer mocked Trump by performing a rendition of Stephen Sondheim’s 1973 song “Send in the Clowns.”
Streisand previously called Trump “clueless, reckless, graceless and heartless,” and also “terrifyingly scary.”
In August 2016, the singer vowed to move to Australia if Trump won the election.
She never followed through with the threat.
