SNL: Scarlett Johansson Savages Ivanka Trump with ‘Complicit’ Perfume Ad
The most cutting SNL sketch of the night belonged to host Scarlett Johansson’s Ivanka Trump.
“Every man knows her name. Every woman knows her face,” the voiceover intones. “When she walks into a room, all eyes are on her. She's Ivanka.”
Saturday Night Live may have gone a little soft on President Donald Trump in this week’s cold open, but his favorite daughter Ivanka Trump — as played by host Scarlett Johansson — and her faux-feminism were not so lucky.
“She's beautiful. She's powerful. She's… Complicit,” the perfume ad continues. “She's a woman who knows what she wants. And knows what she's doing. Complicit.”
“She doesn't crave the spotlight, but we see her. Oh, how we see her,” the voice-over says, as Johansson’s Ivanka puts on lipstick in the mirror and sees Donald in her reflection. “A feminist, an advocate, a champion for women. But, like, how? She's loyal. Devoted. But probably should have bounced after the whole Access Hollywood bus thing.”
“Complicit,” the ad parody ends. “The fragrance for the woman who can stop all this... but won't.”
