Left-winger Barbra Streisand calls Trump 'corrupt and indecent,' begs fans to 'vote for Democrats!

Legendary singer Barbra Streisand has been an outspoken supporter of left-wing causes for quite a long time, so it's no surprise that the 76-year-old is no fan of President Donald Trump.

In an interview with The Guardian, Babs described in great detail exactly what she thinks of the Republican commander-in-chief — who may be surprised to learn that she focused her new album, "Walls," completely on him.

But even without mentioning Trump's name once, the outlet characterized Streisand's new music as a "well-manicured middle finger to the 45th president of the United States."

'I can't bear the man!'

“I can’t bear the man!” Streisand told The Guardian. “He’s a man with no manners! He doesn’t see his own flaws; he doesn’t know what he doesn’t know. You know? He has no humility.”

But she added to the outlet that Trump is “good at marketing. He knows how to sell; he’s a conman. That’s what he’s good at. But he doesn’t think he needs anyone’s help, he thinks he can go it alone.”

"Walls" is an album about the danger she believes Trump poses to America, the outlet added.

“This is a dangerous time in this nation, this republic: a man who is corrupt and indecent and is assaulting our institutions. It’s really, really frightening," Streisand told The Guardian. "And I just pray that people who are compassionate and respect the truth will come out and vote.”



Just "vote"?

Nah. Babs quickly got more specific.

“I’m saying more than just vote," she continued to the outlet. "Vote for Democrats! Vote for what they want their country to look like and feel like and be like. And treat each other with kindness and respect — I have friends who are Republicans, and we have dinner and agree to disagree.”

"There are some good Republicans!" Streisand added to The Guardian, noting her GOP pals "don’t like Trump. They like other aspects of being a Republican" and that she was friendly with the late John McCain and is friendly with retired Gen. Colin Powell.

A chat with Bob Dole

The singer noted to the outlet that she recently got a phone call from former Republican Sen. Bob Dole who "wanted to tell me how much he enjoyed my music, and it was just so sweet of him, he’s 95 years old. And we talked about Trump! I don’t want to put words into his mouth, but we talked about when people are fair and open-minded, they can walk across the aisle. That’s what life should be about, where people communicate and agree to disagree with kindness and respect. And we’re losing all of that. I wish we had a gracious president who had compassion, someone who doesn’t have to insult his opponents or make fun of people with disabilities, or can take criticism without lashing out.”



'He's so stupid!'

“Facts matter. Words have meaning," Streisand added to The Guardian before turning her wrath again toward Trump. "This man defies that. He says climate change is a hoax. Let’s release more coal and carbon into the air and have more mega-fires and hurricanes. I mean he’s so stupid! He’s so ill-informed. 'Liar' is not enough of a word. There must be a bigger word for someone who lies about everything.”

Hillary, oh, Hillary

Streisand, naturally, was a huge supporter of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and told the outlet Clinton's loss to Trump “really kills me. Years ago I gave a speech about language and how women are described compared to men. You know, he’s assertive, but she’s aggressive. He’s commanding, but she’s demanding. And it really applied to Hillary Clinton. It has been said that a man’s reach should exceed his grasp. Why can’t that be true for a woman?”
