This sketch truly makes a point that many in the mainstream media won't, namely that Ivanka is complicit in her father's use of racism, sexism and bigotry to win and extend his stay in the White House.
"SNL" cleverly utilized a parody of a commercial for a high-end designer fragrance to make this point. It opens with Ivanka, played by host Scarlett Johansson, entering a room of people dressed in tuxedos and ball gowns, as a voiceover says, "Every man knows her name. Every woman knows her face."
The partygoers all stop and look as the voiceover continues, "When she walks into a room, all eyes are on her. She's Ivanka."
The commercial continues with glamour shots of Ivanka and then comes the first comedic bulls eye: "She's beautiful. She's powerful. She's ... complicit." We then hear, "She's a woman who knows what she wants. And knows what she's doing. Complicit."
I thought SNL was really good this weekend with some real laugh out loud skits (If you have not seen it yet I highly recommend Zoo Pornographer.) however when I saw this I knew it was going to be the one that everybody talked about this week.
We typically consider family to be off limits, but with the Trump's that is virtually impossible since they are all...well...complicit.
