Beyonce’s name has been in the mouth of Donald Trump supporters lately, claiming that the singer’s songs are way more sexually explicit than Trump’s controversial comments. But now the women closest to Trump — or at least parodies of them on Saturday Live Night — are using Queen Bey’s lyrics to scold the presidential candidate and the fallback from his lewd words towards their gender. SNL calls their plea “Melanianade.”
Cameras take us into Trump Tower after a limo drive with Melania Trump (Cecily Strong), Ivanka Trump (Emily Blunt), Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon), Omarosa (Sasheer Zamata) and Tiffany Trump (Vanessa Bayer). The ladies take notes from Beyonce’s style throughout her visual album while altering the words of the singer’s “Sorry” — from “Most bomb p*ssy” to “Most bomb p*ssy bow.” Then again, Melania declares at the end of the sketch, “I wrote that all by myself.” …Totally.
Forget “Becky with the Good Hair.” “Melanianade” is all about “That Guy with the Weird Hair.” Each woman has a nit to pick with Mr. Trump after they relentlessly remained by his side, and falls prey to the cast’s jabs at their personalities and stereotypes. In the skit, Omarosa calls herself the “token black friend” and Tiffany adopts her mother’s maiden name after feeling second to Ivanka in her father’s eyes.
After all is said and done, Trump (Alec Baldwin) finally comes home to face the wrath of the women. Check out SNL’s “Melanianade” to find out how the story ends.
