Son's of Anarchy star Ron Perlman may have delivered the best Donald Trump impersonation yet during an appearance on MSNBC'S AM Joy yesterday morning (23 July).
Perlman is by no means the first actor or comedian to try his hand at an impression of the 45th president but his effort is sure to become one of the best known.
The actor doesn't perfectly capture Trump's accent but the timing and the content of his monologue, which lasts just over a minute, is priceless.
It sees 'Trump' recounting a fictional story from his visit to Paris as a guest of French president Emmanuel Macron.
The anecdote is a characteristically meandering affair, which starts with the president's reflection that Marine Le Pen really won the French election and ends with a historical note on the origins of the Chocolate Eclair.
Detours are made along the way to compliment his new friend "Alfonso Macron" and, of course, his "hot wife".
The routine had show host Joy Reid in stitches and is sure to do well on the internet just like several other impressions of 'The Donald', including Alec Baldwin's SNL offerings.
Perlman's attempt is believed to have been inspired by a rambling interview that Trump gave with the New York Times last week.
Extracts published by the newspaper included the following: "I have had the best reviews on foreign land. So I go to Poland and make a speech.
"Enemies of mine in the media, enemies of mine are saying it was the greatest speech ever made on foreign soil by a president. I'm saying, man, they cover [garbled].
"You saw the reviews I got on that speech. Poland was beautiful and wonderful, and the reception was incredible."
Perlman is best known for his portrayal of Clay Morrow in Sons of Anarchy, the hit FX series about an outlaw motorcycle gang. He also plays the title role in film adaptations of the comic book Hellboy.
