Barbra Streisand outrageously claims people are dying because the GOP doesn’t believe in medical science

Streisand is just another ignorant Hollywood liberal who will say absolutely anything to shame President Trump and his supporters, regardless if it is true or not.

Hollywood star Barbra Streisand is known for her frequent attacks on President Donald Trump and the Republican Party as a whole, but this might just be her most ridiculous one yet.

Streisand took to Twitter on Thursday to blame American coronavirus deaths on Trump and the GOP despite the fact that the virus originated in China and has affected nearly every country in the world. Instead of blaming China, where COVID-19 originated, Streisand nonsensically claimed that people in the U.S. are dying from coronavirus because the GOP ignores medical science.

“What has happened to the Republican Party? They say nothing while Trump silences the CDC recommendations and contradicts Dr. Fauci by saying his science-based answer is ‘not acceptable,'” Streisand wrote. “People are dying because of this failure of the GOP to follow medical science.”

Not stopping there, Streisand continued her rant hours later when she wrote, “The CDC was once the world’s premier public health organization. In a competent Administration, the organization would be at the forefront in this pandemic. Now the White House refuses to even release the CDC guidelines for reopening the country.”

Despite Streisand’s claims that Trump and the Republican Party are ignoring the CDC and health experts, Dr. Anthony Fauci himself told Congress this week that there are no issues between him and the president. “There is certainly not a confrontational relationship between me and the president,” Fauci said, according to Breitbart News. “As I have mentioned many times, I give advice and opinion based on evidence-based scientific information,” he added, going on to say that the president “hears that. He respects it.” Clearly, Streisand is just another ignorant Hollywood liberal who will say absolutely anything to shame President Trump and his supporters, regardless if it is true or not.
