Julia Louis-Dreyfus used her Emmy Award acceptance speech to take a dig at Donald Trump, reciting a less-than-humble line she said was originally spoken by the GOP presidential candidate.

{mosads}The “Veep” star, who plays a sometimes bumbling president on the HBO satire, “Veep,” accepted her fourth consecutive Emmy for Best Actress at the annual awards show on Sunday night.

“I think it would be appropriate at this moment to quote [our show,]” Dreyfus told the audience.

“’What a great honor it must be for you to honor me tonight,’” the entertainer deadpanned.

“Oh wait, oh God. No, no. I’m so sorry. Donald Trump said that,” Dreyfus, who starred in a “Veep” spoof with real-life Vice President Biden in a video that aired at last year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, said to laughs from the crowd.

But Trump appeared to be poking fun at his own larger-than-life persona in the original quote, which seems to stem from a 2011 Comedy Central roast of the real estate mogul.
