It won’t win her an Oscar but Meryl Streep gave her usual polished performance impersonating Donald Trump at the annual Shakespeare in the Park Public Theatre Gala in New York City’s Central Park.

Donned in the Republican candidate’s signature black suit and red tie, the acclaimed actress even had the world’s most famous wig and fake tan down to a T.

Streep took the stage with her Mamma Mia co-star and friend Christine Baranski, who was dressed as Trump opponent Hillary Clinton, and gave a comedic performance from the musical Kiss Me Kate.

“You’ll let me know why it is all the women say no,” Streep sang.

“Brush up your Shakespeare and the women you will wow,” Baranski responded.

“Just declaim a few lines from Othello and they’ll think you’re a hell of a fella.”

The song, which is based on The Taming of The Shrew, is traditionally sung by male gangsters who are teaching other men about how to woo the ladies with Shakespearean lines.

The performance came amid news that presidential hopeful Clinton, who Streep has openly supported, had secured enough support to become the Democratic nominee, becoming the first woman to get a nomination from a major political party.

The respect is shared between the two powerful ladies as Clinton recently revealed she would want Streep to play her if a film was ever made.
