Rosie O'Donnell — who Trump hates more than people in T-rex suits — led a band of performers from the Broadway shows Hamilton, Les Misérables and Wicked to the White House Monday to sing and protest their hearts out.

They were joined by Jim Obergefell, the man whose name is forever linked to marriage equality in the U.S.; and Kristin Mink, the woman who confronted EPA boss Scott Pruitt in a restaurant.

According to The Hill, Rosie told the assembled group:

Let the President know in no uncertain terms that we are alive, awake and we are woke. We are not going away ... We hope to give you a nice little show and remind you that your voice is important. Whether it’s here in Washington, D.C., or in the town where you live, let your voice be heard.”

The performers, among them Richard Kind and Seth Rudetsky, sang “America the Beautiful,” “Do You Hear the People Sing?,” “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Everybody Rejoice” and “Climb Ev'ry Mountain.” 

The overall message was that Trump is unfit for office, and special attention was paid to his hardline immigration polices.

Obergefell's message was blunt:

Brett Kavanaugh should not sit on our highest court. He is a danger to every marginalized community. Our president — well, not my president, someone else’s president — is a threat to every marginalized community.

If you think protests are useless, you're in the way.
