When Meryl Played Hillary — Kinda

This week, Meryl Streep got herself up as Trump for a Public Theater benefit in New York. In the spirit of fair play, I offer Meryl as The Donald‘s general-election opponent: the triumphant Hillary Clinton. She’s not playing Mrs. Clinton per se. In the remake of “The Manchurian Candidate,” Meryl plays a character done initially, and brilliantly, by Angela Lansbury. No, it’s not Mrs. Clinton, but Meryl said it was based on part of Mrs. Clinton.
