Former Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) filmed an appearance in “Sharknado 3” outside the White House on Wednesday.

According to the Huffington Post, Bachmann will play herself in the third made-for-TV movie about killer sharks in tornadoes.

“My name is Michele Bachmann and I play Congresswoman Michele Bachmann,” she said in an interview with the cast, according to the Huffington Post.

“It wasn’t anything offensive. It was just fun,” she said about her role in the film. “This was a total stretch for me!”

In the third “Sharknado” installment, the disaster hits Washington, D.C.

“I believe they are growing in size. Congress has to take this seriously because sharknado is a real phenomenon,” Bachmann said during her scene, according to the Huffington Post.

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter will also appear in the film as the vice president of the United States, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will play the president.
