Barbra Streisand was very vocal about Donald Trump during the election, but now she's really taking a dig at the President-elect just in time for tomorrow's Inauguration Day. The legendary singer/actress penned an essay for Huffington Post where she calls him "clueless, reckless, graceless, mindless and heartless."

After naming presidents that greatly served our country (like Barack Obama and Franklin Roosevelt), Streisand says she is worried about Trump's plans:

"Now we await Donald Trump, and I am deeply concerned for our country and the world. He has demonstrated he is both dangerous and unfit for office. Does he understand the magnitude of the job? Did he just run for president to get even with President Obama who once made jokes about him at a White House Correspondents’ Dinner? Does he want to get rid of Obamacare just because of the name?"

The artist then calls out Trump for his ridicule of women, immigrants and the disabled, and points out how he lost the popular vote by nearly three million votes. "I have great respect for the experienced politicians who have served our nation with sincere regard to improve and protect the republic," she added. "Even those I have often disagreed with. I cannot, however, respect a racist, xenophobic sexist who puts us all at risk with his behavior."

She also notes Trump's incessant Twitter outpourings, saying:

"He says he does not need to spend time sitting through intelligence briefings, but finds the time to start Twitter fights with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger over television ratings. I'm not the first to say it, and you need only peruse top 10 lists of his most horrifying or childish tweets to see his own words as evidence. Donald Trump behaves like a petulant child."
