Ever since then, there have been reports by women who have come forth with allegation that Trump sexually abused them. While campaigners and supporters have been defending the Republican candidate’s gross comments and actions against women, there has been no comments from the Trump women.
That seemed to be the major plot for the SNL recent episode in which the female cast along with guest star Emily Blunt coveted the role of the three Trump female family member with Cecily Strong playing wife Melania, and her stepdaughters Ivanka Trump played by Emily Blunt and Tiffany Trump played by Vanessa Bayer.
There are also Donald's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway that Kate McKinnon owns and his "only black friend "Omarosa” played by Sasheer Zamata. The sketch is inspired by Beyoncé’s original diss track Sorry from Lemonade and was aptly retitled Melanianade.
The sketch involves the cast singing out the feelings of the disgusted women who are telling him what they hate about him and the revelations that have been coming forth about him. Melania says that she’s the beautiful, dutiful Melania. She can’t take it anymore. She is his wife. Next is Ivanka, his daughter, Kellyanne, his mouthpiece, Omarosa, his only black friend and Tiffany, his other daughter.
They all say that he’s breaking them and taking them for granted that they’ll always be there. With synchronised movements while music box music plays in the background, Melania tells him that one day he will wake up and her bomb Pussy bow blouse will be gone. Trump Tower is shown and the ladies engage in more synchronised moves inspired by the original soundtrack.
The Sorry track chorus sounds with innovated lyrics from the perspective of these ladies. Melania is not sorry. Kellyanne says that he’s always screwing up and she has to clean it up, said he’d stick with her unless they’ve got to a real mess indicating his ‘pussy’ comments as the headlines on the newspaper which she throws away disgusted.
They are packing their Gucci and drinking tea with their pinkies up. The chorus involves them saying that they have had enough of Donald Trump and they have their four fingers up and hit him in the face to tell him ‘boy bye’. Ivanka says that when Trump says sorry, she thinks he doesn’t mean it. She was supposed to be the brains here but what the hell she’d been thinking.
She says that now he’s bringing Paula Jones in and her friendship with Chelsea Clinton in gone. She pleads to Chelsea to call. Melania smashes the TV with a baseball bat showing Trump. Tiffany says that she killed on that convention speech and it’s not a lie but she’ll never be Ivanka in his eyes. She doesn’t care and she’s turning tables, from now on she’ll be known as Tiff Maples.
Omarosa says that she’s leaving her resignation and she’s doesn’t care about no last name signed on it. Melania says that she has always been by his side but don’t underestimate his wife. She might forgive but won’t forget while she is seen ripping a magazine labelling her deceived. She warns Donald to watch out because she and her buddies are going to walk out.
There is also Mike Pence played by Beck Bennett, who adds in that he is needed only when he’s not there. They also tweak at ‘Becky with bad hair’ lyrics singing that “Without us you wouldn’t be standing there / you’d just be the guy with the weird hair”
They also address the Obama plagiarism scandal when Melania claims that she wrote that all by herself before Trump played by Alec Baldwin comes in and tells them that the limo is waiting and they should all get going. Tiffany gets uninvited and hangs back.
Many fans agree that SNL has come up with great election material this time and they are rocking it week after week. What do you think?
