She went there! Amber Tamblyn mimics Donald Trump in an LOL-worthy Lip Sync Battle performance in a preview for the Wednesday, October 19, episode of the hit series.
In the clip above, the 33-year-old actress — dressed in a business suit and sporting Trump’s infamous comb-over and fake tan — gets down and dirty to Color Me Badd’s 1991 hit “I Wanna Sex You Up.” Her opponent and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costar America Ferrera sits in a chair and is treated to Tamblyn’s enthusiastic hip gyrations and pelvic thrusts.
In the background, two large signs read “I [love] Hispanics,” and “Make [America Ferrera] great again” — two clear digs at the 70-year-old Republican presidential nominee. As previously reported, Trump, whose campaign slogan is “Make America Great Again,” has made offensive remarks about Hispanics. (He was fired by NBC from his hosting duties on The Celebrity Apprentice in January 2015 after suggesting that Mexican immigrants are rapists.)
In response, Ferrera, 32 — who is of Honduran decent — fired back during the Democratic National Convention back in July. “I’m America Ferrera, and according to Donald Trump, I’m probably a rapist,” she said during the event. “Look, Donald’s not making America great again. He’s making America hate again.”
Tamblyn has also spoken out about the controversial Oval Office hopeful. Though she defended Trump against body-shamers after an artist crafted several naked statues of him and placed them throughout the country this summer, the Joan of Arcadia alum shared a terrifying story of her past sexual assault in the wake of his 2005 Access Hollywood video scandal, in which he brags that his star power allows him to do “anything” to women — even grabbing them “by the p–sy.”
According to Tamblyn, an ex-boyfriend of hers did just that during a traumatizing night out at a Hollywood nightclub “a very long time ago.”
“That part of my body, which the current Presidential Nominee of the United States Donald Trump recently described as something he’d like to grab a woman by, was bruised from my ex-boyfriend’s violence for at least the next week,” she wrote via Instagram on October 9, the night of Trump’s second presidential debate with Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. “I had a hard time wearing jeans. I couldn’t sleep without a pillow between my legs to create space.”
She added: “To this day I remember that moment. I remember the shame. I am afraid my mom will read this post. I’m even more afraid that my father could ever know this story. That it would break his heart. I couldn’t take that. But you understand, don’t you? I needed to tell a story. Enjoy the debates tonight.”
Watch Tamblyn mock Trump above. Lip Sync Battle airs on Spike TV Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
