Barbra Streisand Sings Parody of 'Send In the Clowns' to Mock Donald Trump
Barbra Streisand put her feelings about Donald Trump into song Friday night (Sept. 9).
At an LGBT fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, the singer performed a parody of the Stephen Sondheim song "Send In the Clowns" using lyrics about the Republican nominee.
"Is he that rich? Maybe he's poor. Till he reveals his returns, who can be sure?" Streisand sang to an applauding crowd of about 1,000. "Something's amiss, I don't approve. If he were running the free world, where would we move?"
Streisand preformed before a large, effusive crowd at the New York City fundraiser. She followed Clinton, who stressed her support for the LGBT community and said, "We all love this woman, either from afar or, luckily enough, up close."
The event raised money for the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee comprised of Clinton's campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state parties. Contributions ranged from $1,200 to over $250,000.
Streisand also sang renditions of "People," ''Pure Imagination" and "Happy Days Are Here Again."
But her Trump parody clearly stood out. It continued: "And if, by chance, he gets to heaven, even up there, he'll declare Chapter 11. This sad, vulgar clown. You're fired, you clown."
