Meryl Streep has been known as a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, but in a recent gala event, she opted to look like the politician’s opponent Donald Trump. Did she already jump into the other boat?
According to Daily Mail UK, the 66-year-old multi-awarded actress was the “spitting image of the Republican” when she attended the 2016 Shakespeare in the Park Public Theater Gala at the Delacorte Theater in New York’s Central Park on Monday.
As described by the entertainment site, the star of the 2006 20th Century Fox film “The Devil Wears Prada” seemed “unrecognizable in Trump’s signature dark suit and red tie, layered over a padded suit.”
As Donald Trump, Meryl Streep reportedly painted her face orange and wore a blonde wig to complete the look.
With how she looked during the event, she was not only successful in capturing the attention of those around her because of it, since she also got an “A” with her performance on stage.
“You’ll let me know, why all the women say no,” the Donald Trump impersonator sang as she performed Cole Porter’s “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” with Tony winner Christine Baranski.
The report noted that the piece was from “Kiss Me Kate,” a musical based from The Bard’s play “The Taming of The Shrew,” that was “traditionally” sung by male gangsters and emphasized on the importance of reciting Shakespeare lines when courting a lady.
Aside from the controversial US presidential candidate, Streep once imitated the Queen, Margaret Thatcher and Emmeline Pankhurst.
In the meantime, Donald Trump pointed out that his statement about Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel, a Mexican-American, was “misconstrued,” The New York Times reported.
It was noted that the father of Ivanka Trump has been “under fire for suggesting” that the judge handling the Trump University case was “biased” because of his heritage.
“I do not feel that one’s heritage makes them incapable of being impartial,” he said in a lengthy statement he issued.
Donald Trump continued to narrate that “I am friends with and employ thousands of people of Mexican and Hispanic descent.”
