Former entertainer and Democrat mega-donor Barbra Streisand claimed in an Easter Sunday Twitter rant that President Trump is directly responsible for the more than 20,000 coronavirus deaths in the United States, adding that he is “unfit” to lead the country.
“I wrote a song called ”Don’t Lie to Me” after Trump was elected, because he was a serial liar,” the Hillary Clinton supporter tweeted. “Now, with more than 20,000 people dead because of his incompetence and lies, he’s proven that he can’t handle the truth. He’s unfit to lead this nation…especially in a time of crisis.”
“I wholeheartedly endorse Joe Biden for President,” she wrote in March. “Trump must be beaten in November before he does more damage to our democracy, environment, for our health and safety and standing in the world.”
Because they can’t bring him down any other way, Streisand and her fellow Democrats are eager to pin the pandemic on Trump to hurt his election chances. But this strategy is going to backfire come November.
