Barbra Serenades Hillary And Bill With ‘What Could Have Been’

Barbra Streisand serenaded Hillary and Bill Clinton at her weekend concert in Brooklyn, saying the losing presidential candidate represents “what should have been.”

Babs introduced Hillary Clinton as “the winner of our country’s popular vote” after introducing the former first couple to a cheering crowd at the Barclays Center, the Daily News reported.

She said a recent interview with Hillary “makes us yearn for what could have been, what should have been.”

Streisand, a longtime Democratic donor and friend of the Clintons said she was happy to see Hillary Clinton play a leading role in the fight against President Trump.

“I was thrilled to hear yourself describe yourself as an activist citizen and part of the resistance.”

The songbird went on to give some love to Bill Clinton, ticking off his accomplishments like lowering taxes for some and raising taxes on the rich.

Then she took another dig at Trump for famously refusing to release his taxes.

“And speaking of taxes, (Bill Clinton) showed us his tax returns,” she said.
