She can do anything!

Meryl Streep may be famous for her range, but she’s truly outdone herself with her latest role.

The actor attended the 2016 Public Theater Gala on Monday night dressed as presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump—complete with his signature combover and facial tan lines. A large tie, oversize suit, and body padding completed her look.

Streep paired up with Christine Baranski to sing a parody version of Cole Porter’s “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” for the audience, which means she delivered such lyrics as, “You’ll let me know, why all the women say no,” while in character.
