SNL Needs to Dial It Back - And Take Ivanka Trump Stuff Out Completely

SNL Has Made Its Point - Time to Move On

Even the most vicous (yes, right word) Trumpie supporters have to laugh at SNL and its portrayal of the administration.  The skits are humorous and right on target, and no one deserves redicule more than Trump.  But the fun has to end some time, and now is the time.  Repetition is a sign of creative stagnation, not cleverness.

Even more important the show needs to leave Trump's daughter, the acting First Lady alone.  Ivanka Trump is not playing a public role in the policy debates and decisions.  She is not an official member of the Trump team and whatever she is doing with her father behind the scenes is not for public redicule.  Quit it, SNL.


WASHINGTON — The biting humor of ‘‘Saturday Night Live’’ took 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.
