Barbra Streisand is sounding off about Donald Trump, and we couldn’t agree with her more.
In a new op-ed in the Huffington Post, Streisand recounts the first 40 days of Trump’s presidency.
He’s put Wall Street first and frightened immigrants. In his speech to Congress, Trump repeatedly tried to draw a connection between immigrants and violent crime.

Trump says he “inherited a mess.” But Stephen Colbert, who has never been better, helped clarify the truth for us, “No, you inherited a fortune. We elected a mess.” In fact, he inherited a growing economy in America, while President Obama inherited a quasi-depression in 2009.
