Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka, Baldwin back to roast Trump on 'SNL'

Actress Scarlett Johansson plays Ivanka in an ad parody about a new perfume called "Complicit".

Saturday Night Live have been making headlines for the last six months for their hilarious-yet-scathing political coverage, namely Alec Baldwin's ire-inducing impression of President Donald Trump.

In fact, her Ivanka Trump was the highlight of the show. As she turns to the camera, her facial expression hilariously reflects her father's as a voiceover begins to hock the perfume: "Because she's attractive".

One woman - Johansson - struts boldly into the room in a sparkly gold dress with an unimpressed look on her face.

"A feminist, an advocate, a champion for women", the commercial reads. "He's my man." When his appalled owner (Johansson) suggests something's wrong with the machine, the helmeted and wired-up Max (Beck Bennett doing the voice work, I think) deadpans, "There's no glitch. She's Ivanka", the voiceover says.

Also on this weekend's episode, Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Donald Trump. "She's... Complicit", says a sultry voice-over, narrating the ad. Devoted. Probably should have bounced after that whole Access Hollywood bus thing."This being a reference to the leaked 2005 video recording of Trump bragging about groping women".

The sketch sees a team of scientists debuting technology that translates a pet's thoughts into words with Scarlett Johansson's character, Helen, using her dog, Max, as the example.

Last night, another very important member of Team Trump was the subject of a biting SNL sketch: His daughter, Ivanka.

"She doesn't crave the spotlight, but, we see her", we hear as Ivanka turns her gaze toward a full-length mirror to apply lipstick.
