Barbra Streisand: Trump is making me gain weight

People. People who eat jelly donuts…

On Saturday, Hollywood elitist and Democratic Party supporter Barbra Streisand claimed on Twitter that President Donald Trump is making her gain weight.

She wasn’t entirely clear on whether Trump had actually come to her $100 million cliff-side estate in Malibu and held her at gunpoint until she choked down fattening foods against her will.

Here is what she did write:

Four minutes later, she was back on Twitter:

Naturally, her tweets prompted a great deal of well-deserved scorn. Here are a few:

Streisand actually may have a good reason to binge. Seems she’s thrown hundreds of thousands of dollars away on Democratic candidates.

Last October, McClatchy reported:

The singing idol and actress last month sent $1,500 to the North Carolina Senate campaign of Deborah Ross, who is in a tight race with two-term Republican Sen. Richard Burr that could determine which party controls Congress’ upper chamber for the next two years.

Streisand has long been a reliable donor to Democrats. Since 1991, she has contributed at least $791,660 to congressional and presidential candidates, as well as party committees, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Despite Streisand’s money, Burr beat Ross last November by 51% to 45%.

“Apparently you can’t see the real damage that Trump is doing to the nation unless you step on a scale,” Twitchy quipped.
