Meryl Streep as Clinton kind of seems a perfect fit…

I’m going to dig up Marlon Brando to audition for Trump.

The Avengers as the cabinet with the doozers from fraggle rock as illegal immigrants. Or Trump as everyone.

Putin playing everyone would be confusing but apropos. Dub that shit Comrade Detective style.

It would be a shitty Adam Sandler “comedy”, so everyone is played by Adam Sandler doing terrible voices, wearing bad costumes and crappy wigs.

Eric Trump: Leonardo di Caprio

Hilary Clinton: Diane Keaton

Barack Obama: Will Smith

Anthony Scaramucci: Ben Stiller

Melania: Fergie

Kellyanne: Brett Butler

Sarah Sanders: Sarah Gilbert

Mike Pence: Anderson Cooper

James Comey: Liam Neeson

Bob Mueller: Eugene Levy

Rachel Maddow: Jeaneane Garafolo

Ivanka Trump: Blake Lively

Carter Page: Woody Harrelson

Rand Paul: Neil Patrick Harris

Papadapoulos: Mark Ruffalo

Ben Carson: John Legend
