Trump to meet hundreds of actors pretending to be politicians at state banquet

Helen Mirren or the Queen? Trump will never know...

Helen Mirren or the Queen? Trump will never know…

Many leading figures and politicians have declined invitations to attend the state banquet being held for US president, Donald Trump, during his state visit in June.

To avoid an embarrassingly small table, the Palace is engaging actors to play the part of politicians.

Helen Mirren is already onboard to stand in for The Queen, as she did such a good job in the 2006 movie of the same name.

The real Queen, Elizabeth II, expressed much relief.

Theatrical agents around the country have been charged with finding suitable actors. Top priority is for the few high-profile politicians who have declined. These include Jeremy Corbyn, Speaker John Bercow, Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable and the SNP’s Ian Blackford.

It is not expected that Donald Trump will know any by sight but the Palace wishes to maintain a semblance of accuracy for the photos.

If you are an actor and a politician look-a-like and have been wondering why you don’t get much work, that may be because you look like a politician and who wants one of them opening a summer fete  or playing Macbeth?

But now could be your chance to shine, meet with the fascist leader of the free world and score some good grub and expensive booze in the process.

The Palace, however, has warned that anyone who overindulges and gets inebriated will forgoe their fee and be sent to the Tower.

The Palace has produced a five-page list of Dos and Don’ts to help would be candidates prepare for the event.

Various No Nos include asking anyone for their autograph or contact details, referring to the Queen by any other form than Her Majesty, and kicking Donald Trump under the table.

Dame Helen Mirren said she is, once again, honoured to be playing Her Majesty. Although she cannot expect another Academy Award, Dame Helen said she is looking forward to baffling Trump with big words, irony, and the intricacies of royal protocol.

So not a demanding role, this time.

Do you know any actor/politician look-alikes?
If you were a politician, what politically-correct thing would you like  to say to Trump?
