‘SNL’: Latest Melania Moment Has Melania Trump Ponder Switching Places With the Maid
“Melania Moments” has been one of the staples of the 42nd season of “Saturday Night Live,” with a new edition of the Jack Handy-style shorts lampooning the decadence of Melania Trump coming with each new “SNL” this year so far.
Saturday’s Melania Moment was titled “The Housemaid,” and saw Cecily Strong‘s Melania facing a new sort of existential crisis as she noticed the maid (also Cecily Strong) cleaning the Trump Tower penthouse actually looked a lot like herself. The realization gives her an idea for how she may be able to experience life as a normal person.
“Melania Trump couldn’t help but notice that the housemaid looked a lot like her,” the narrator said. “She wondered if the resemblance was convincing enough they could switch places for a day. ‘That way,’ she thought, ‘I could go out into the world, see a bus, see a hill, or even feel the texture of sand. She’d stay here and lay under Donald. Not a fair trade but oh, how I long to touch sand.’”
