Scarlett Johansson playing first daughter Ivanka Trump on SNL is what the world needs right now

A feminist, an advocate, a champion for women, but like how?

We're currently refreshing Donald Trump's Twitter page at an almost worrying rate because we're almost certain he'll have something to say about Scarlett Johansson any minute now.
You see, she's taken aim at President Trump's pride and joy – his daughter, Ivanka Trump.
Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump.
Trump has already vocalised his extreme distaste for Saturday Night Live, so, yeah, we don't think he's going to be pleased at this latest skit.
Scarlett Johansson plays the first daughter in a spoof perfume ad. For a perfume called 'Complicit', so basically taking aim at Ivanka being complicit in her father's views.
"She's a woman who knows what she wants. And knows what she's doing. Complicit."
The narrator continues: "A feminist, an advocate, a champion for women, but like how?"
The spoof ad looked convincing.
As 'Ivanka' is putting on lipstick in a mirror, we hear, "She doesn't crave the spotlight, but we see her. Oh, how we see her." The camera then reveals the reflection in the mirror is Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump.
It concludes: "Complicit: The fragrance for the woman who could stop all of this but won't."
Scarlett bears a striking resemblance to Ivanka.
This latest spoof comes after the POTUS and his advisor Kellyanne Conway landed themselves in hot water for spruiking Ivanka's products.
Trump also slammed Nordstrom for dropping his daughter's line in an unprecedented move.
We're not sure what our favourite Trump SNL skit is now we have Melissa McCarthy, Alec Baldwin AND Scarlett Johansson to choose from.
