Scarlett Johansson Stars as Ivanka Trump in 'SNL' Perfume Ad

Yes, to horror of the "SNL" cast, ScarJo's dog is a fan of President Donald Trump.

The bit was a great fit with one of Alec Baldwin's now-iconic (and reportedly becoming scarce) impersonations, and highlighted some of Trump's latest scandals: from his perceived relationship with Russian Federation; to his feud with NBC and its most recent The Apprentice host, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Trump tries and fails to give a similar inspirational speech to the soldiers gathered, but largely goes off topic. "We will be united in our common interest".

"Actually", he says, "the aliens are already here". "Your best friend at the dog park is a chihuahua That means he's from Mexico and Trump wants to kick them out of the country". "She's... Complicit", says a voice-over narrator.

"Yes she is, and so is the woman next to her, right there". She looks at Jones, and looks back. Scarlett Johansson plays the president's offspring and adviser. It may be hard to believe considering she had such incredible success with Pure Heroine in 2013, but this is Lorde's first time as musical guest on the show. "I never knew there could be so much coal, '" says the Trump character, who is more concerned that he "won the popular vote" than California being "vaporized".

"A feminist", the voiceover continues. Baldwin's Trump makes a silent reappearance as Ivanka stops in front of a mirror to touch up her lipstick, only to see her father there, her Trump's soul inescapable.

Kate McKinnon channeled AG Jeff Sessions getting friendly with Alex Moffat's Sen. Sessions said no at the time, but it became clear earlier this month that the 70-year-old attorney general actually met with Sergei Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the USA, on at least two occassions during the campaign.
