Streisand: I’ll Leave The Country If Trump Wins
Acclaimed singer Barbra Streisand is joining the list of disgruntled celebrities threatening to leave America if Donald Trump is elected president. She made the comments during an interview with Sydney-based journalist Michael Usher during an Australian news program broadcast on Sunday.
“He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it,” Streisand said, referring to Trump. “I’m either coming to your country [Australia], if you’ll let me in, or Canada.”
A “thrilled” Hillary Clinton supporter, Streisand has spent the last few weeks campaigning for her preferred candidate.
"I'm spending an evening campaigning with Hillary in New York City next week, and I would love to meet you there," Streisand stated in an email sent out to Clinton campaign supporters Sunday. “I’m ready to do whatever it takes to help Hillary.”
Parroting feminist rhetoric, the singer added that her experience as a woman in Hollywood has fueled her passion for electing Hillary as president.
“It’s harder to believe the truth: that we have power, and we can use it,” Streisand emphasized in a direct addressed to women yearning to feel “empowered.” “Hillary Clinton is the proof."
The singer has even taken her campaign work to late night television. In a recent appearance with The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon, Streisand sang a duet mocking the billionaire businessman.
In claiming that she’ll leave the country if the Republican candidate is elected in November, she joins the likes of Lena Dunham and Chelsea Handler and others who have eagerly used their celebrity as a tool to push a political agenda.
