Barbra Streisand Is So Upset About Trump, She Performed Humiliating Parody of ‘Send in the Clowns’

From the stage, the liberal singer and entertainer could not resist taking potshots at the president

By PopZette Staff | August 13, 2019

If there were any supporters of President Donald Trump in the audience recently during a Barbra Streisand concert in New York City … Well, never mind.

(The few who may have been there likely guessed what they would be getting into before they even walked in the door.)

The left-leaning celebrity, singer and actress couldn’t resist going after the president during her Madison Square Garden concert last week with the performance of a parody version of her iconic song, “Send in the Clowns.”

This one’s lyrics were quite a bit different, however.

They had one target in mind.

They had one agenda.

Here’s what she treated her mostly Democrat audience to with the lyrics to her parody song: “He says he’s rich/ Maybe he’s poor/ ‘Til he reveals his returns/ Who can be sure?/ Who is this clown?”

That last lyric threw the crowd into wild applause.

Then she went on: “Something’s amiss/ I don’t approve/ Now that’s he’s running the free world, where can we move?/ Maybe a town/ Just who is this clown?”

Then, in another verse, she ripped him with the moniker “a fraudulent twit,” as many outlets reported.

After she finished singing her song, she lectured her appreciative audience from the stage.

“You know, that was meant to be a funny song,” she said.

“But what’s going on just isn’t very funny, because it would take me all night long to recite 11,000 lies. You know what I mean?”

“But there’s a line by Oscar Wilde that, uh, kind of describes this person,” she went on. “The line is: ‘He’s a man who knows the price of everything, but the value of nothing.’”
