Rosie O’ Donnell’s Broadway protest outside the White House was a bust. The joke was on her.

Rosie O’ Donnell and a group of Broadway actors arrived in Washington D.C. ready to disrupt President Donald Trump with their protest outside of the White House.

But the plan was a bust as the performers who arrived by bus to the nation’s capitol from New York City should have just crossed the Hudson River into New Jersey – where the president actually was.

The anti-Trump comedian joined the performers in a musical protest which they must have thought would make some sort of impact, singing show-tune favorites like “Do You Hear the People Sing?” from “Les Miserables,” “Let The Sun Shine In” from “Hair” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” from “The Sound of Music.”

Not likely Trump could hear any of it from his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club where he is vacationing.

“We hope to give you a nice little show and remind you that your voice is important,” O’Donnell told the crowd. “Whether it’s here in Washington, D.C., or in the town where you live, let your voice be heard.”

Those singing voices were led by Seth Rudetsky, host of SiriusXM channel “On Broadway” who helped O’Donnell organize the event.

Protesters gathered with the predictable anti-Trump signs, accusing the president of being a racist or colluding with Russia, while chanting “Lock him up!” and “Putin’s puppet!” Some sported shark and dinosaur costumes and letters spelling “TREASON.”

“Let the president know in no uncertain terms that we are alive, awake and we are woke,” O’Donnell said as she joined the other performers to sing for less than half an hour before leaving, according to The Daily Caller.

The event drew in a small crowd which shrunk down to a few dozen people after just two hours. Some of those gathered in Lafayette Square as part of the “Kremlin Annex” protest have been part of demonstrations being held over the last three weeks.

“Republicans, they want to win elections by making fewer people vote. Boo!” Kristin Mink told the crowd.

Mink, who had the word “vote” shaved on the side of her head, was the woman who confronted former head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, and told him to resign days before he stepped down.

“The message to the people is to use your voice, stand up against treason and stop fascism before it takes over the United States.” O’Donnell said. “We’re gonna keep coming until he’s out.”

Of course, O’Donnell and her group left after the musical number and headed back to New York.

Twitter users were less than impressed, but certainly amused, by the production.
