Streep took the stage with her Mamma Mia! costar Christine Baranski, who was dressed as Hillary Clinton, to perform “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” from the musical Kiss Me, Kate. The duet is usually sung by two gangsters, and the lyrics are all about impressing ladies by reciting lines from the great English poet and playwright. Streep even added a line of her own: “You’ll let me know, why it is all the women say no,” implying that women won’t vote for Trump.
