Scarlett Johansson takes aim at Ivanka Trump on Saturday Night Live

The biting humour of Saturday Night Live has taken aim at another Trump this week — First Daughter Ivanka.

The long-standing comedy show skewered President Donald Trump’s elder daughter with a faux perfume ad, starring actress Scarlett Johansson.

The name of the perfume? Complicit.

As Johansson walks into an elegant party in a glittering evening dress, the narrator says: “A woman like her deserves a fragrance all her own. A scent made just for her. Because she’s beautiful. She’s powerful. She’s complicit.

“She doesn’t crave the spotlight, but we see her. Oh, how we see her,” says the narrator as Johansson applies lipstick and sees Alec Baldwin playing Trump reflected back in the mirror.

The narrator continues: “A feminist, an advocate, a champion for women, but like how?

“Complicit: The fragrance for the woman who could stop all of this, but won’t.”

It was the first time Johansson portrayed Ivanka. Actress Margot Robbie depicted her in a sketch last year.

Ivanka was a popular surrogate for her father on the campaign trail. She stepped away from executive roles at her self-named lifestyle brand and with the family business to move her young family to Washington, DC, when Trump took office.

For now, just her husband, Jared Kushner, has an official position, but Ivanka has been an active presence at White House meetings and has been advocating for several issues, including for new childcare policies.

The extent of her influence over her father behind the scenes has been the subject of intense speculation.

The White House and a representative for Ivanka did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
