On day two of the Democratic National Convention, Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks hilariously mocked Donald Trump’s “over the top” entrance at the DNC. In a parody, complete with lights, fog, and We Are The Champions blaring over the speakers, she skewered the Republican nominee’s WWE style entrance by taking the stage just as he did last week.
Once the podium had dramatically risen out of the ground, Banks nailed Trump by comparing his campaign to the fictional world her character lived in.
Some of you know me from The Hunger Games, in which I play Effie Trinket, a cruel, out-of-touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia. So when I tuned into Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Uh, hey, that’s my act!’
Trump certainly does seem to have a lot in common with her character in the movies, and all things considered, that is rather terrifying.
