‘SNL’ Turns Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ Into Melania Trump’s ‘Melanianade’
As Donald Trump’s comments about women and growing list of sexual assault accusers send shockwaves through the final month of this election, the Republican candidate has continuously leaned on the women in his inner circle to vouch for him. But in a digital short on “Saturday Night Live,” those ladies finally got their revenge in a parody of Beyonce’s “Sorry” from “Lemonade.”
Filmed entirely in black and white and titled “Melanianade,” the short featured “SNL” players as Melania Trump, daughters Ivanka and Tiffany, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, and famed “Apprentice” villain Omarosa. The quintet called out Trump for relying on them to bail him out and, like Beyonce saying goodbye to a shifty boyfriend, declaring they were done with his nonsense.
“You’re taking it for granted that we’ll always be there,” warned Melania, ” But one day soon, Donald, you may wake up and this bomb p***y blouse will be gone.“
The ladies were shown trashing Trump’s stuff, including Melania taking a bat to a TV airing Trump on the news like Beyonce taking a bat to some car windows. We also saw Tiffany Trump smashing one of her father’s portraits, declaring that “I’ll never be Ivanka in your eyes” and that she would henceforth be addressed as Tiff Maples.
Even Mike Pence got a guest appearance in the short, as Melania spotted him “in the corner looking for the back door.” And instead of singing about “Becky with the good hair,” they told Trump that he’d just be “that guy with the weird hair.”
