With her head down and arms moving robotically by her sides, the “Pitch Perfect 2” star appeared at the Democratic National Convention first as a silhouette as the Queen song blasted through the Wells Fargo Center here.

The entertainer continued to throw zingers at Trump: “Some of you know me from ‘The Hunger Games,’ in which I play Effie Trinket: a cruel, out of touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent utopia,” the actress said. “So when I tuned into Cleveland last week, I was like, hey, that’s my act.”
