Elizabeth Banks Parodies Donald Trump's RNC Entrance During Her DNC Appearance
She walked out to Queen's "We Are the Champions."
— -- At the Democratic National Convention tonight, actress Elizabeth Banks spoofed the WWE-style entrance Donald Trump made at the RNC last week in Cleveland -- and compared the RNC to the "Hunger Games" film franchise in which she starred.
“You know, I don’t usually say this about Donald Trump, but that was over the top! The Trump campaign is so hard up for money I bought that fog machine on eBay for 30 bucks — I don’t feel good about it,” Banks said after emerging onstage at the DNC in silhouette, in a fog of smoke and to Queen’s “We Are The Champions," exaggerating Trump's bombastic appearance last Monday.
The "Pitch Perfect" actress took direct aim at the reality TV star-turned-presidential nominees.
“I’m Elizabeth Banks," she said. "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 in to Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Hey! That’s MY act!’"
