In one of her more embarrassing moments – which, to be frank, is really saying something – former famous person Rosie O’Donnell gathered a group of Broadway performers in front of the White House for a protest/sing-along.
“Let the president know in no uncertain terms that we are alive, awake, and we are woke,” O’Donnell screeched.
The performers sang such ditties as “America the Beautiful,” “Let the Sun Shine In,” and “Do You Hear the People Sing?” in a protest that will do absolutely nothing about anything.
“We hope to give you a nice little show and remind you that your voice is important,” O’Donnell said at the event. “Whether it’s here in Washington, D.C., or in the town where you live, let your voice be heard.”
Rosie’s appearance was part of what seems to be a neverending protest in front of the White House; it started three weeks ago and is apparently going to become some of these people’s full-time careers. The one-time talk show host was joined by such luminaries as Kristin Mink, the woman who nabbed 15 seconds of fame last month when she confronted Scott Pruitt in a restaurant, and Jim Obergefell, the man responsible for the legal case that ultimately made same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.
Obergefell warned that the Supreme Court that he used to defy democracy would not be the same if Brett Kavanaugh were to be confirmed.
“Brett Kavanaugh should not sit on our highest court. He is a danger to every marginalized community,” Obergefell said. “Our president – well, not my president, someone else’s president — is a threat to every marginalized community.”
Thankfully, we have washed up Hollywood comedians, gay plaintiffs, and obnoxious restaurant patrons on hand to join forces with Broadway stars and prevent these terrible tragedies from unfolding. Oh, wait, they’re not going to prevent a thing? They’re just going to make asses out of themselves in the nation’s capital while business proceeds as usual? A rousing round of “America the Beautiful” isn’t going to stop Republicans from slam-dunking Kavanaugh into the Supreme Court? Oh, so sad.
Go home, Rosie. Your unhinged Twitter account needs more content.
