The singer called into MSNBC’s “Hardball With Chris Matthews” while she was getting her teeth cleaned Monday to weigh in on what happened after Streep lambasted the president-elect at the Golden Globe Awards.

“I thought that she said what she said beautifully,” Streisand said. “And I completely agree with Meryl — it was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person. And what we need more in this world is kindness and common decency, and how he reacts and how he has the need to talk back and insult anybody who doesn’t agree with him, that’s pretty disgraceful.”

“What’s the signal to little children who watch television and see this is the behavior of the soon-to-be-president of the United States?” she continued. “That’s why you can’t trust anything he says.”

“Why isn’t he sitting through briefings rather than tweeting this nonsense? I don’t know how we’re going to take four years of this.” (RELATED: Donald Trump Did Not Watch ‘Hillary Lover’ Meryl Streep’s Speech)
