“Saturday Night Live” in its latest episode features Melania Trump looking for advice from former first ladies ahead of her husband’s first State of the Union address.
Cecily Strong potrayed the first lady prepping for the event and asking how she would “ever get through” the address
“Come on Melania, practice your happy face,” she insists in the skit. “I don’t belong as first lady, I wish I could talk to someone who’s been through this whole mess before.”
Natalie Portman’s Jackie Kennedy then shows up in the skit. Trump asked how she could become a good first lady when “Donald make it so hard.”
Portman’s Kennedy explained to the first lady that her approval rating had gone “through the roof.”
“Yes, yes, people like me because they’re like, ‘That lady look how I feel,’ ” Trump explains in the skit.
Former first lady Hillary Clinton, played by Kate McKinnon, also makes a cameo appearance in the skit, explaining to Trump: “I feel your pain, but you married him.”
The skit also see’s Leslie Jones’s Michelle Obama show up, stating she and former President Obama have a “perfect relationship.”
During the end of the skit, Kennedy instructs Trump to do what first ladies have always done while at the State of the Union: “Stand there and clap.”
“OK, but sometimes I’m going to sit down and not clap,” Trump states in the skit.
The altercations between the president and the first lady have drawn heavy media interest since The Wall Street Journal first reported that President Trump‘s personal lawyer had arranged a $130,000 payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels during the campaign as part of a nondisclosure agreement regarding an alleged affair with President Trump.
