Amber Tamblyn will channel Donald Trump during Wednesday’s Lip Sync Battle performance.
In the preview above, the 33-year-old actress dons a business suit and a wig resembling Trump’s well-known comb-over. Tamblyn grinds beside “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” co-star America Ferrera to Color Me Badd’s 1991 hit, “I Wanna Sex You Up.”
The two will compete against each other in the upcoming episode.
In the background, two large signs read “I [love] Hispanics,” and “Make [America Ferrera] great again.”
The choice of song, and the signs are clearly digs at the GOP nominee. Trump’s campaign is still reeling from the fallout of a leaked recording from 2005 in which he bragged about being able to kiss and grope women due to his celebrity status. In the last week, several women have come forward with claims of sexual assault and harassment. Trump has denied those claims, saying the media is rigged against him.
Tamblyn shared her own story of sexual assault on Instagram following the revelation of Trump’s comments from 2005.
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. I had a hard time wearing jeans. I couldn’t sleep without a pillow between my legs to create space.
Tamblyn shared her horrifying experience on the night of the second presidential debate.
Ferrera has also spoken against Trump— specifically for his comments on Mexican immigrants. In a Huffington Post column, she wrote:
No, Mr. Trump, you may not reduce us to drug dealers and rapists. We are moms and dads, sons and daughters. We are valedictorians and honor students. We are college graduates, bankers, police officers, entertainers, teachers, journalists, politicians and we are the future of America.
Tamblyn and Ferrera will battle it out on Spike TV’s “Lip Sync Battle” on Wednesday at 9 p.m.
