Barbra Streisand blames president Trump for her weight gain



Barbra Streisand blames president Trump for her weight gain

Another celebrity who promised to leave the United States if Donald Trump became president is singer and actress Barbra Streisand. But instead of making good on her promise, she is drowning her discontent in syrup and pancakes. Last weekend, Streisand took to Twitter to blame her weight gain on Trump-induced pancake consumption.

While Donald Trump’s presidency has caused Lena Dunham to lose weight, it has had the opposite effect on Streisand.

The ten-time Grammy-award winning singer, who has often rebuked President Trump, said witnessing his presidency was causing her to “gain weight”.

Streisand said news stories about the billionaire property developer were making her devour pancakes.

“Donald Trump is making me gain weight. I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!” she tweeted.

On Saturday, Streisand was disturbed by Trump’s accusation that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones during the election.

“Trump just accused Obama of tapping his phones,” she tweeted. “Seriously crazy times. Time for more pancakes.”

An Obama spokesman has denied the allegation that the Obama White House directed surveillance against Trump.

On Sunday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, whose committee is already examining Russia’s election interference, said that his committee would also be making “inquiries into whether the government was conducting surveillance activities on any political party’s campaign officials or surrogates.”

The singer, who was a steadfast Hillary Clinton supporter, has vented her frustrations about Mr Trump on several occasions. She argued Mr Trump is “dangerous and unfit for office” in an essay that she wrote for The Huffington Post titled “Clueless, Reckless, Graceless, Mindless and Heartless: Our President Elect.”

Performing at an LGBT fundraiser for his democrat rival Ms Clinton last year, she changed the lyrics of classic Stephen Sondheim song “Send in the Clowns” to poke fun at the Republican’s refusal to release his tax returns.
