World News – GB – Patti LuPone mocks Donald Trump’s « Evita » balcony after being released from hospital: « I have lung power »


Patti LuPone, 71, didn’t hesitate to mock President Donald Trump’s public appearance on the White House balcony after returning from the hospital on October 5 This is because that it reminded Patti of her famous balcony scene in her politically charged Broadway production, Evita, in which she took on the role of late actress Eva Perón in 1979 Ironically, the real Eva – who married former populist Argentine president Juan Perón in 1945 – stood on the balcony of Casa Rosada (Argentina’s version of the White House) to deliver speeches to the public.

Instead of addressing a MAGA loving crowd, however, Eva addressed the working class (whom she called « the shirtless ») from her balcony To celebrate her legacy as a woman who has passed away. from rags to wealth and became the champion of ordinary people, the Broadway adaptation of Eva’s life created the song « Don’t Cry For Me Argentina » which Patti sang in the play With these similarities in mind, Patti thought her balcony scene was much more iconic than the POTUS photoshoot pictured above. « I still have lung power and wore less makeup This revival ends November 3, » Patti joked on Twitter

Of course, the « makeup » jab referred to Trump’s tan often described as orange Obviously, Patti still hasn’t lost her edge (as expected from a Tony Award winner) Evita also was made into a movie in 1996 and the former First Lady of Argentina was played by Madonna

Patti’s tweet attracted a lot of attention, but it wasn’t the only one to compare the moment of Trump’s headline to the Evita scene, which was based on the 1952 speech that the then-dying Eva gave uttered telling a crowd that they could not accept their wish to be her husband’s vice-presidential candidate in the next election « Donald Trump looks VERY uncomfortable here, out of breath Listen, I also like to piece together Evita’s Don’t Cry for Me Argentina scene, but only when my lungs are at full capacity, ”one tweet read
