Is there a role Meryl Streep can’t play? The legendary actress dressed up as Donald Trump for the 2016 Public Theater Gala, and Meryl looked so much like him that she had fans going nuts over her costume! See the crazy pic and fan reaction right here!
Meryl Streep is typically the belle of the ball at any event she attends, but on June 6, she was getting attention for a different reason: She was dressed up like Donald Trump! The 66-year-old actress totally nailed an impression of Trump, 69, for the Shakespeare in the Park Public Theater Gala, completely looking the part too — orange face and all!
Sporting Donald’s classic navy suit and red tie combo, Meryl definitely had the outfit down pat. Oh, and did we mention the fake gut she had? LOL. But as great as her ensemble was, it was the makeup and hair that had everyone talking! Her hair was propped on top of her head just like Donald’s, and she even made her face bright orange to mock Donald’s spray tan! Needless to say, she didn’t even need to open her mouth for people to know exactly who she was supposed to be!
We don’t want to say that Meryl actually looks like The Donald, but we have to admit that she was practically a spitting image of him once she had her hair and makeup done. One Twitter user even called her a “chameleon,” which we’d say is a pretty accurate way to put it! See some of the best reactions below:

To make the Donald impersonation even funnier, Meryl performed an entire skit as Donald with her friend Christine Baranski, who was dressed up as Trump’s arch enemy Hillary Clinton. The two gave a hilarious performance of a scene from the musical “Kiss Me Kate.” The funniest part of it all, though? Meryl is a Hillary supporter! Oh, the Donald mockery!
What do you think of Meryl’s Trump costume, HollywoodLifers? Do you think she could run for president one day? Tell us below!
