DANG: Meryl Streep ‘Impersonates’ Donald Trump on Stage–Puts on Fat Suit and Fake Tanner

Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 10.14.46 AMMeryl decided to attend Shakespeare in the Park as Trump. It was supposed to bring political comedy to the show. Did her performance fall flat?

So why, you may ask, is Meryl dressed up like Donald Trump? Well the actress and star of our hearts was a part of the annual Shakespeare in the Park Public Theater Gala in New York on Monday, where she and Christine Baranski performed a duet of Brush Up Your Shakespeare from the musical Kiss Me, Kate. And, oh yeah, Meryl was dressed as Trump. Because Shakespeare and political comedy is the very best kind of comedy.
