Omarosa: Ivanka Trump ‘couldn’t stop' bemoaning SNL’s ‘complicit’ parody of her

First daughter Ivanka Trump has, in public, generally stayed above the fray of the criticisms directed at her, but, according to former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, she was particularly troubled by Saturday Night Live ‘Complicit’ sketch and seethed about it behind closed doors. 

In her newly-released book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House, Omarosa writes: “At the senior staff meeting, Ivanka couldn’t stop bemoaning it, how offensive it was, how ridiculous it was. We’d all been subject to SNL attacks …We’d all been hit, many of us in that same week’s show. But Ivanka would not stop talking about being ribbed. Like her father, Ivanka was thin-skinned and could not seem to take a joke.”

The sketch in question featured actress Scarlett Johansson as Trump and included a voiceover that said, in part, “She’s beautiful. She’s powerful. She’s complicit. She’s a woman who knows what she wants. And knows what she’s doing…Complicit, the fragrance for the woman who could stop all this — but won’t.”
