Barbra Streisand skewered Donald Trump at an LGBTQ fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in New York on Friday with a parody of the Stephen Sondheim song “Send in the Clowns.”

Streisand followed Clinton, who introduced her saying, “We all love this woman, either from afar or, luckily enough, up close.”

The crowd, of about 1,000, ate up every second of the performance. She begins:

Is he that rich?
Maybe he’s poor?
Till he reveals his returns
Who can be sure?
Who needs this clown?

Ouch. Since we know Trump is most sensitive about his wealth this has to hurt. She continues:

Something’s amiss
I don’t approve
If he were running the free world
Where would we move?
Name me a town
Just who is this clown?

And when we thought we’d heard it all
Huffing and puffing about his big fantasy wall
Making his entrance on stage
He just shoots from the hip
He’s full of bull
He’s lost his grip

And if by chance
He gets to heaven
Even up there he’ll declare
Chapter 11
Who’d hire this clown?
This sad vulgar clown
“You’re fired!” you clown

Hillary’s kind
Smart, that is clear,
While she is giving us hope, Trump is selling us fear
Look how he changes his views every time that he speaks
It’s lie after lie
Can’t take eight more weeks

This is no farce
Maybe he’s broke?
Is this the art of his deal?
Or some awful joke?
You’ve got to admit
This silly halfwit 
Is so full of shit!
