Since Donald Trump is
officially probably going to be the Republican candidate for POTUS, expect to see every actor, comedian and famous trick do their own impersonation of him from now until the election ends, and even beyond that. Last night, it was 600-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep’s turn to smear Paprika all over her face and drop a dead ran-over guinea pig on top of her head to play Jabba the Trump.
Meryl played Trump and Christine Baranski played Hillary Clinton while singing a song together at the Public Theater Gala in Central Park in NYC. They sang Brush Up Your Shakespeare from the musical Kiss Me Kate. Clips ended up on Twitter:

I’ll probably be jailed for saying this about the world’s greatest Thespian, but judging solely by that blurry video, I’m not getting Donald Trump. I’m getting accidental toilet baby of The Penguin and Jiminy Glick. You know, now that I think about it, Donald Trump IS the accidental toilet baby of The Penguin and Jiminy Glick. So Meryl nailed it! As for the look, I’m not really getting Donald Trump. I’m getting grown-up Augustus Gloop after Chester the Cheetah blew a giant Cheetos dust fart into his face. You know, now that I think about that too, Donald Trump IS a grown-up Augustus Gloop after Chester the Cheetah blew a giant Cheetos dust fart into his face. Meryl nailed it all around!
Christine Baranski, on the other hand…. Christine’s Hillary Clinton drag is very, “I’m Christine Fucking Baranski and I’m not going to wear a helmet hair wig and some baggy pantsuit!”
