"Donald Trump behaves like a petulant child."

Anyone who follows Barbra Streisand on Twitter (opens in new tab) knows she has a lot of thoughts and feels about Donald Trump. But evidently, those tweets were just a warm-up for the main event: delivering a scathing take-down of the PEOTUS in a brilliant op-ed. In other words, Barbra is the Queen, and we should all bow down.

The entire essay (opens in new tab) is worth reading, but here are some highlights:

On Trump being a racist:

"I have great respect for the experienced politicians who have served our nation with sincere regard to improve and protect the republic, even those I have often disagreed with. I cannot, however, respect a racist, xenophobic sexist who puts us all at risk with his behavior."

On Trump being under-qualified:

"Does he understand the magnitude of the job? Did he just run for president to get even with President Obama who once made jokes about him at a White House Correspondents' Dinner? Does he want to get rid of Obamacare just because of the name?"

On Trump's sexism:

"This is a man who, on record and often on video, disparaged or outright ridiculed women, immigrants, the disabled and others. He lost the popular vote by nearly three million votes, and yet cannot seem to grasp that the president's obligation is to at very least attempt to unite and respect all Americans."

On Trump's nepotism:

"Experts say he will be in Violation of Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution on the first day of his presidency. His claim that he will never talk to his sons about his business is laughable."

On Trump's obsession with Twitter:

"He says he does not need to spend time sitting through intelligence briefings, but finds the time to start Twitter fights with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger over television ratings. I'm not the first to say it, and you need only peruse top ten lists of his most horrifying or childish tweets to see his own words as evidence. Donald Trump behaves like a petulant child."
