On Monday evening Rosie O’Donnell led a group of Broadway performers in a singing protest outside the White House. This was part of the “Kremlin Annex” protests.
The group of protesters traveled from New York City. While protesting they sang songs such as “Climb Every Mountain” and “A Brand New Day.” Why? To not only show their disapproval for President Trump, but also to give the protesters a show.
There were many protesters that heard the singing, but President Trump did not. He was in Bedminster, New Jersey at his golf resort.

The singers were holding American flags during the performance, but eventually some of those dropped to the ground:
There were chants, including “lock him up” and “jail to the thief.”

When the performance ended Rosie promised they would be back to protest President Trump again another day.
