Petition: Why don't we just replace actual Donald Trump with Meryl Streep *playing* Donald Trump? She's got three Oscars! Nobody will know the difference. 

In perfect timing with Hillary Clinton's primary win Monday, the actually decent singer—you wouldn't know it judging by this movie trailer (opens in new tab)—teamed up with Christine Baranski to perform "Brush Up Your Shakespeare" from Kiss Me, Kate at the Park Public Theater Gala at the Delacorte. Did we mention she was done up in full Trump-face (and hair and bad suit)? 

The lyrics are kind of cringey/creepy when you think about it, which is on-brand for the Donald (opens in new tab). But that delivery, though? Pure Meryl.
