Jamie Foxx Is A Secret Trump Impersonator: A Comedian Sets The Internet On Fire And Gives The Perfect Impression
Jamie Foxx was recorded doing a surprisingly impressive imitation of former President Donald Trump.
The 54-year-old Oscar-winning actor, comedian and singer sat in a hotel room recording an interview for The Rap Radar Podcast alongside rapper Snoop Dogg to promote the couple’s new Netflix film Day Shift when he suddenly veered into print, much to the surprise and delight of everyone around him.
Foxx’s mimicry seems virtually indistinguishable from reality, including Trump’s intonation and cadence.

Foxx begins his part with a reference to the time in 2017 when Trump stood up for neo-Nazis marching in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“There are a lot of great people on both sides, a lot of great people on both sides,” he said, sending the room into hysterics.
“I know Harry-O, he’s a great person. He couldn’t vote for me then, now he can vote for me when he comes out,’ Foxx continued, speaking of Death Row Records co-founder Michael ‘Harry-O’ Harris.
Harris was sent to prison in 1988 for attempted murder and kidnapping. He had been heavily involved in the Los Angeles drug scene.

“They tried to transmit the virus. I defeated the virus!’ he sang a lot to the hilarity of all who were gathered.
Twitter users said Foxx’s impression was the 45th president’s best yet.
