Actress Amber Tamblyn dresses up as presidential nominee for TV show

Amber Tamblyn dressed up as presidential nominee Donald Trump for U.S. TV show Lip Sync Battle and performed the song I Wanna Sex You Up.

The actress was competing against her pal and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-star America Ferrera on the program when she stunned studio audience members by donning a reddish blonde wig, suit and tie and danced and mimed along to Color Me Badd's 1991 song.


Amber recently took to Instagram to respond to presidential hopeful Trump's much-publicized historic sexual comments about women, recalling her own sexual assault by an ex-boyfriend in a Hollywood nightclub.


"The minute he saw me, he picked me up with one hand by my hair and with his other hand, he grabbed me under my skirt by my vagina - my p***y - and lifted me up off the floor literally," she wrote, "and carried me like something he owned, like a piece of trash, out of the club."


"That part of my body, which the current Presidential Nominee of the United States, Donald Trump, recently described as something he'd like to grab a woman by, was bruised from my ex-boyfriend’s violence for at least the next week. I had a hard time wearing jeans. I couldn't sleep without a pillow between my legs to create space."


"I am afraid my mom will read this post," she continued. "I'm even more afraid that my father could ever know this story. That it would break his heart. I couldn't take that. But you understand, don't you? I needed to tell a story."


Trump has been criticized for comments he made while talking to a reporter off-camera during an interview opportunity with U.S. TV show Access Hollywood, not realizing he had not removed his microphone. He has also been blasted for lewd remarks he made to DJ Howard Stern about Lindsay Lohan in 2004, when she was a troubled 18-year-old party girl.
