LISTEN: New Barbra Streisand Single Sounds Inspired by Trump

“Your lips move but your words get in the way,” she sings in “Don’t Lie to Me”

Barbra Streisand speaks out against Donald Trump on her new single, “Don’t Lie to Me.” In the track off her forthcoming album Walls, Streisand highlights Trump’s much-criticized relationship with facts and his undoing of democratic values.
