‘SNL’ finally gets around to trashing Ivanka Trump in this commercial spoof


Saturday Night Live has been brutal to President Donald Trump all year, ripping him with Alec Baldwin whenever it gets the chance. The show hasn’t showed much mercy to his sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, either, and it’s been well-established that Kellyanne Conway is a clear target as well.

But one Trump family member who has been mostly left alone by SNL is Ivanka Trump, even though she was recently issued an unpaid tax warrant on her jewelry business and even though her clothes line has been dropped by multiple department stores.

On Saturday, though, SNL took aim at Ivanka, and it stunk. Not the sketch but the imagined perfume Ivanka, played by Scarlett Johansson, was trying to sell.

Watch the commercial spoof and see how the world reacts to Ivanka’s new perfume (and stand guard for an epic Titanic joke).
