Law and Order: SVU is planning to air an episode based on the 2005 video released last week in which Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women.

Now in it's 18th season, SVU has a long history of ripping stories from the headlines, including episodes based on Beyoncé and Jay-Z's elevator fight and Netflix's Making a Murderer, so it was only a matter of time before they tapped this week's biggest news story.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "in the episode, Gary Cole (Veep) will play a politician whose campaign goes haywire when several women go public with damaging accusations."

Back in September, SVU showrunner Rick Eid told THR that they had already planned on as story "involving some sort of brash demagogue with political ambitions." It looks like the recorded audio of Trump saying "grab them by the pussy" was enough to push them over the edge.

Or, maybe the show is keeping a close eye on SVU actor Ice-T's Twitter account.

The episode will be called "Unstoppable," and will air just two weeks before the election on October 28th.

Get him, Olivia.
