Actor and musical icon Barbra Streisand upped her criticism of President Donald Trump on Thursday, accusing the president of regularly lying to deflect from critics.
Streisand used her Twitter account to link to a Reuters report that quoted the president as saying his administration would explore possible ways of strengthening libel laws as a result of Michael Wolff’s incendiary new tell-all about Trump’s first year in office.
“.@realDonaldTrump can’t deal with criticism so he lies,” Streisand wrote. “Now he wants to change the libel laws. Sorry it doesn’t work like that. You can’t stand the heat or the truth but no one forced you to run for President.”
Reuters reported that Trump’s comments came in response to the Wolff’s recently-released Fire and Fury, which includes several explosive claims about the president, including that White House staffers believe he behaves like a child.
