Meryl Streep’s Latest Role: Being Donald Trump! [PHOTOS]

Someone hand this lady a trophy now!

Meryl Streep treated audiences of NYC’s Park Public Theater Gala to a convincing impersonation of the 2016 presidentiable, Donald Trump. Donning a red tie, a hairpiece, and tons of fake facial tan, the actress fits the part to a T!

Co-actor Kate Burton noted how she even emulated some of the businessman-politician’s mannerisms: “He apparently does this thing, where he goes to close to his jacket but it doesn’t close all the way, and so he kind of goes for it and then he tries to close it again.”

“I appreciate the interest, but this was a one-off, a once in a (last in a) lifetime appearance of this character,” Streep clarifies.

No biopic soon?
