(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.’”

Barbra Streisand Tries to Impress the Clintons at Her Concert by Mocking Trump
This article was sourced from Political Insider
Singer Barbra Streisand tried to impress Bill and Hillary Clinton during a show by doing a parody of ‘Send in the Clowns’ directed at President Trump.
Streisand, like both Clintons, has her best days long, long behind her.
The Meet the Fockers actress began by taking a poll of Democrats and Republicans in her audience at a concert in New York City, then telling those who might be supporters of President Trump to “cover their ears.”
She then began singing a satirical version of ‘Send in the Clowns’ mocking the President.
“Maybe he’s poor. Till he reveals his returns, who can be sure? Who is this clown?” she sang. “Something’s amiss, I don’t approve. Now that’s he’s running the free world, where can we move? Maybe a town, who is this clown?”

You’re more than welcome to move out of the country, Babs, as Trump has made quite clear to those who hate America.
A picture of Trump as a clown was projected behind the stage because Hollywood liberals have the intellect of pre-teens.
That’s when she got super-edgy with her lyrics:
This is not a farce. It’s not just smoke. Is this his ‘Art of the Deal’ or some awful joke? You’ve got to admit, this fraudulent twit is so full of …
Her ‘how do you do fellow kids’ moment.

Desperately Seeking Attention From the Clintons
Streisand was very clearly playing up to the Clintons, desperately seeking attention from the man she called “a great president” and the woman she said she was sad for not being able to sing at her inauguration.

Reporter Olivia Nuzzi said Republicans in attendance at the concert suggested Streisand might want to shut up and sing.
Who’s the Clown?
Trump supporters are screaming “JUST SING” and “WE DON’T WANNA HEAR IT” at Barbra Streisand. Meanwhile a man behind me just said “they don’t like the truth. They can’t handle the truth.”

Speaking of clowns, Streisand has a solid history of buffoonery, including downplaying the trauma of those who claimed to have been molested by the late entertainer, Michael Jackson.
She has also blamed the President for making her eat too much and not exercise.
“Donald Trump is making me gain weight,” she told her Twitter followers. “I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!”

At a Billy Joel concert last month, the Clintons were shown on the big screen as the artist dedicated a song to them. A good portion of the crowd wasn’t having it.
All in all, we prefer one concert involving rock legends, Kiss, in which the band stopped their show to honor military members, recited the Pledge of Allegiance, and then performed a rockin’ version of the national anthem.
The Left Eats Its Own: Sarah Silverman Loses Movie Role Over Old Blackface Photo

Silverman described the climate in Hollywood as “righteousness porn.”
Liberal comedian Sarah Silverman said on “The Bill Simmons Podcast” she recently lost a role in a movie after the filmmakers discovered a picture of her in blackface from 2007.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“I recently was going to do a movie, a sweet part, then at 11 p.m. the night before they fired me because they saw a picture of me in blackface from that episode. I didn’t fight it,” Silverman shared with Simmons. She said that though she understood, she’s not that person anymore: “They hired someone else who is wonderful but who has never stuck their neck out. It was so disheartening. It just made me real real sad, because I really kind of devoted my life to making it right.”
Silverman is no stranger to being outspoken, and she and Simmons discussed how the “canceled culture” has caused comedy to become a “dangerous place” for those who have made many mistakes in their past.
“I think it’s really scary and it’s a very odd thing that it’s invaded the left primarily and the right will mimic it,” Silverman said, further arguing that she considers the current climate to be “righteousness porn.”
She added: “It’s like, if you’re not on board, if you say the wrong thing, if you had a tweet once … everyone is, like, throwing the first stone. It’s so odd. It’s a perversion. … It’s really, ‘Look how righteous I am and now I’m going to press refresh all day long to see how many likes I get in my righteousness.'”
I agree with Sarah. The outrage culture numbs my brain because people on both sides view it as a way to take down people they do not like.
People make mistakes. People can change. If they genuinely do then they deserve a second chance. Silverman does not think everyone deserves a second chance:
“As I draw lines in the sand — and I wish for other people on the left to do this too — you have to ask yourself, ‘Would I want this person to be changed, or do I secretly want them to stay what I deem as wrong, so I can point to … myself as right?” she said. “There’s so much to be genuinely outraged by, but you have to say, ‘Is the action I’m taking here creating change or creating further division?’ ”
Every person deserves a chance to change and better themselves. They deserve another chance and not have their lives destroyed by a past mistake no matter how they lean on the political spectrum.
However, hypocrisy lands everywhere, including in “canceled culture.” If past actions destroy one person’s life, but not another, then what is the point? Silverman lost a movie role that sounded prominent and one that could boost her career over an old photo.
Yet Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam remains in office. Northam admitted he appeared in a photo that shows one man in blackface and the other in a KKK outfit from his college yearbook.
Then he said one of the men in the photo is not him, but admitted he wore blackface in another incident. Northam held an awkward press conference with his wife where he insisted he would not resign from his post despite pressure from fellow Democrats.
