Barbra Streisand burns Trump on social media

The songstress has hit out at the president
The singer is at it again.

Legendary singer Barbra Streisand has taken aim at US president Donald Trump, slamming him for spending taxpayer money on his weekend vacations.

Streisand took to Twitter to air her thoughts on the president’s spending, saying he should fund his own holidays.

“Why doesn’t billionaire Trump pay for his weekend trips and NY apartment instead of taxpayers?” she wrote.

“If Trump continues to house family in NYC & vacation at this rate, it will cost taxpayers $526 mill. Arts budget is only 1/4 this cost.”

Her comments come after Trump received backlash for the amount of holidays he has taken since becoming president.

He has spent seven consecutive weekends away from the White House at Trump-branded properties and resorts, costing taxpayers up to $2 million for each getaway, according to The Washington Post.

Prior to taking office, Trump consistently claimed he would not take many holidays if he was president, saying he “would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done” and “would not be a president who took vacations” because “you don’t have time to take time off.”

It’s not the first time Streisand has hit out at Trump. Last months she made headlines for accusing the president of making her fat.

Are you a fan of Barbra Streisand? What do you think about Donald Trump as president?

  1. John  

    I love Streisand. As for Trump, I think he is a narcissitic, crooked, sociopathic and bigotted grub!

    • Faye Dapiran  

      Exactly, I am a huge fan of hers, and I would rather not comment on Trump at all thanks.

    • R blunt  

      You want narcissistic, I’ll give you Narcissistic and that is the footage of Barrack OBarma telling journalists ‘ if I could go back and tell that young president anything I would have to say ‘ your going to be truly great and in a very short time’, now that in Australia is a Narcissist or in an Aussieism ‘Your on yourself mate!’

    • Joan Marshall  

      Barbara Streisand cannot prove that President Trump is using tax payers money. He does not need the tax payers money. President Trump is not even taking his salary as President. Hillary Clinton would have taken from the tax payer as she has always done. There is none so blind as those who will not see.

    Agree with you John , she is talented and he behaves like a pre schooler showing his audience his doodling signature every time he signs a piece of paper . ……….. ” Look mummy I can write my ABC ” God help America

    • Pat  

      God help all of us not just America, never know what he will do next, maybe it’s better if he takes lots of vacations and leaves the decision making to others

    • Terry Sykes  

      Trump is a hypocritical lying new york con man.

  3. Julie Brown  

    the whole Trump circus would be hilarious if we weren’t so closely tied to the US. How could this have happened.

  4. Diana  

    I believe that if our government has any sense whatsoever – and so far they haven’t inspired any confidence in me – they will distance us from the US as long as Trump or any of his billionaire mates are in power. We are well aware that Trump doesn’t like Australia – especially after Turnbull’s grovelling phone call, and we really don’t know whether he stood up to The Orange One or not – so why bother with them? We are allowing the USA to keep a base in Australia for no rent and buy planes from them, but why would anyone want to invite Trump to Australia for a visit – so far not mentioned, but sycophant Turnbull may well do so. Now, Trummp is leading toward baiting North Korea and that is like poking a crocodile with a ruler. Soon he is going to insult the wrong person and it would be as well for us if we have distanced Australia from American political entities.

    • Patricia  

      Don’t allow Trumph into Australia. He’s vermin

  5. Rickshaw  

    Love Trump. A breath of fresh air ! As for the Media personalities ,they are a legend in their own minds and should stick to acting instead of lecturing the audience. The media distorts most of the stories and it’s difficult to find one that is believable.

    • Guy Flavell  

      Completely agree Rickshaw. These bloody left-wing ‘personalities’ should
      just accept the US people’s decision to elect Donald Trump and stick to
      what they do best … singing, dancing and acting. Has-beens like Streisand
      can do far more constructive things with their time like charity work
      and helping aspiring singers to improve their careers.

      • Faye Dapiran  

        She is a has been, and Trump isn’t, they are about the same age for starters. She could sell out huge concerts around the world if she chose to tour. He couldn’t even get a good crowd at his inauguration and had to lie about it.

  6. I agree with you Heather, Guy and also Rickshaw are both dicks. They obviously dont care about the American tax payers or the future of the world.

    • Guy Flavell  

      Yeah K, mine is in its correct position … YOURS IS ON YOUR STUPID HEAD !!!

  7. Well written Rickshaw, give the guy a chance, just leave him alone, as for the looney left, butt out idiots.

  8. Jan Jakowenko  

    Go Donald. Keep on annoying the leftist Aussies who should mind their own business and stay out of American politics.

  9. Guy Flavell  

    Hey, all you anti-Trump wallies … 63 MILLION Americans voted Trump in
    resoundingly. The left-wing twits on Twitter show themselves up to be
    exceedingly poor losers … as do most of you people making derogatory
    comments. GET OVER IT !!!

    • yvonne  

      from the rest of the free world.. the trump voters have serious brain issues if they cannot see what their president trump is doing to the world. he is a narcissist
      pure and simple and he acts like a 2 year old having a tantrum unfortunately he will destroy a lot of good peoples lives with his bigotry, lies and stupid false facts tweets. he has no sense of propriety or good manners.

      • Guy Flavell  

        63 MILLION people with “serious brain issues” … I don’t think so Dearie !!!

  10. Wilma Greenway  

    And May I remind you all if you did not hear it the first time he said it ” My uncle was a genius, I can’t tell you ” and he didn’t. Give me a break , he’s still on the hustings telling all the gullibles , “there’s going to be jobs so beautiful, you wont believe it” America has been sucked dry he said. There is not a developed country on Earth that has not been sucked dry since Globalisation was inflicted on all of us. America will come back it’s too great a democracy not to, but I fear for this wonderful country with this ignorant in the White House.!!!!!!!!

    Hi Guy Flavell, you never learn do you. Continue to spew right wing uneducated trivia and propaganda. Can’t bear to see anyone disagree with your rightard propaganda. Well get used to it. You’re nothing but a small uninteresting speck on the conservative map. What will you say when Trump is finally impeached? He’s nothing but a pathological liar like many of our conservative politicians in Australia. Big sigh Guy.

    • Guy Flavell  

      Nothing wrong with being a so-called conservative “rightard” Marella … much better than
      being aptly called an extreme left-wing ‘retard’ like you are. Seriously though, I agree
      Trump is definitely not setting the world on fire and yes, impeachment is not beyond
      the pale if he doesn’t pick up his game. Perhaps the next few months will give us an
      indicator whether he’s worthy of the trust of 63 million US voters ?
