Which Comedy Icon Is Itching to Bust Out Her Melania Trump Impression?
The comic says she'd like to take a crack at the FLOTUS hopeful "when things have calmed down a little"
No one knows impersonations quite as well as comedy legend Tracey Ullman, who stars in her own show on HBO. And though the comedy legend prefers to leave riffs on The Donald to Saturday Night Live, that doesn’t mean Trump’s wife Melania is off limits.
“I’ll let Alec Baldwin do [Trump]. It’s not like I’m going to try that one now. No! I’d like to do Melania when things have calmed down a little,” Ullman shares with PEOPLE Now.
“I think I can do it because she’s from countries that I know. I think I can do it, I think I try,” she delivers in a uncannily Melania-esque accent.
“I love Saturday Night Live, especially in the election season,” says Ullman. “Kate McKinnon doing Hillary, it’s lovely because it’s almost like she’s interpreting Hillary too, she’s given her this lovely cheerleader enthusiastic character. I love that!”
The comedy star sums up the turbulent election season with the sentiment, “God, ya gotta laugh, bloody hell!”
Tracey Ullman’s Show airs Fridays (11 p.m. ET) on HBO, and Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays (11:30 p.m. ET) on NBC.
