Meryl Streep proved on Monday night that there's not a role she won't tackle.

The three-time Oscar winner put on a fat suit and lathered on the orange makeup as she channeled presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, during the annual Shakespeare in the Park Public Theater Gala at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Streep imitated Trump alongside her Mamma Mia! co-star, Christine Baranski, who was impersonating former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who's also running for president.

The performance was a twist on the song "Brush Up Your Shakespeare" from Cole Porter’s Broadway musical, Kiss Me, Kate, which is based off of The Taming of The Shrew. During the duet, Streep, as Trump, recited, "You’ll let me know why it is all the women say no."

Baranski, as Clinton, crooned back, "Brush up your Shakespeare and the women you will wow. ...Just declaim a few lines from Othello, and they'll think you're a hell of a fella."

"Even in the midst of coming after me, he can be charming. It's very confusing. One minute you're thinking, 'What?' and then you're laughing."
