Barbra Streisand partly blamed President Trump for the high school mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, saying the president’s actions and rhetoric “brings out the violence in people.”
Speaking to Variety magazine in an interview published Tuesday, the 10-time Grammy-winning singer suggested that 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who fatally shot 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, was “affected” by Mr. Trump’s election.
“I think even that shooter was affected because Trump brings out the violence in people. He says, ‘It’s OK — rally, lock her up,’” Ms. Streisand said, referring to Mr. Trump’s rally chant pertaining to his former Democratic presidential rival, Hillary Clinton.
“Everything he called Hillary, he is,” she said.
“He embodies the nasty remarks he makes about other people. He’s a liar. He’s crooked,” she added.
It’s hard to take someone like Streisand seriously about violence and the value of human life when she pushes abortion on demand.
