It’s Scarlett vs. Ivanka!
Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson pulled no punches on “Saturday Night Live,” ripping into the First Daughter for being “Complicit” in her father’s controversial policies.
The skit, one of several targeting Donald Trump on “SNL,” mocked Ivanka for a fictional perfume brand that spotlighted her so-far ineffective efforts to portray herself as a moderating influence on her dad.
“She’s beautiful, she’s powerful — she’s ‘Complicit,’” a voice-over echoes as a dolled-up Johannson mingles with a faux A-list party crowd in the skit. “She’s a woman who knows what she wants and knows what she’s doing — ‘Complicit.’”
Johansson gazes at herself in a mirror only to see a familiar visage appear/.
“She doesn’t crave the spotlight but we see her — ‘Complicit,” the voice says as Donald Trump takes the place of her reflection.
“Complicit, the fragrance for the woman who could stop all this — but won’t,” the voice says as the skits fades out.
