Let’s All Slow Clap For Meryl Streep Dressed As Donald Trump

+

Over her decorated career, Meryl Streep, arguably the world’s greatest actress, has embodied many roles. None, however, have been as vile, nightmare-inducing and heartless as the one she took on yesterday evening. May I present to you, Meryl Streep as Donald Trump:

No, this is not a BTS for a forthcoming FX miniseries (though we wish it were). Streep took on the off-putting physical attributes (orange-gold coif, orange-orange skin, protruding belly) of the Republican presidential hopeful for last night’s Public Theatre Gala, benefitting Shakespeare in the Park.

The resemblance is uncanny, until Ms. Streep smiles. It isn’t nearly smug enough.
