As if her three Oscars weren’t proof enough, Meryl Streep demonstrated once again that she’s an acting goddess when she gave a hilarious impersonation of Donald Trump during a performance in New York City on Monday night.
The 66-year-old actress donned a fake belly, streaky self-tanner, a suit and red tie, and Trump’s signature bouffant hair style to give a parody performance as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee alongside her Mamma Mia! co-star Christine Baranski, who was impersonating Hillary Clinton.
The satirical musical performance was a part of the annual Shakespeare in the Park Public Theater Gala event in Central Park and featured Streep putting a decidedly Trump-like spin on Cole Porter’s Kiss Me, Kate ballad, “Brush Up Your Shakespeare,” singing, “You’ll let me know why it is all the women say no!”
