Barbra Streisand: Women supporting Trump ‘don’t believe enough in their own thoughts’

November 26, 2018

Artist and left-wing activist Barbra Streisand has a new target for her anger over President Trump’s 2016 election: women.

The voice behind “The Way We Were” says American women were intimidated by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s brilliance and unable to stand up to their husbands in the last U.S. presidential election.

“A lot of women vote the way their husbands vote,” she recently told the Daily Mail during an extensive interview. “They don’t believe enough in their own thoughts. Maybe that woman who’s so articulate, so experienced and so fit for the presidency [Hillary] was too intimidating.”

Ms. Streisand’s comments came while promoting her anti-Trump protest album “Walls,” which was released earlier this month.

“Perhaps [Mrs. Clinton] made women feel unsuccessful,” the singer added for her Nov. 23 interview. “All of this was so devastating to me and I was heartbroken, so I wanted to write about it, sing about it and deliver an album. It was perfect timing, so I just did it.’”
