Ivanka Trump was reportedly very, very mad about the Saturday Night Live skit that made her the face of a glamorous new perfume called “Complicit.” Aw, it’s hard being complicit.


This comes from People, which pulled it from—I’m so, so sorry—Omarosa’s new book, which will continue to dominate the headlines from now until the end of August, the worst month for news:

“At the senior staff meeting, Ivanka couldn’t stop bemoaning it, how offensive it was, how ridiculous it was,” Manigault Newman, 44, says about Trump, 36. “We’d all been subject to SNL attacks … We’d all been hit, many of us in that same week’s show. But Ivanka would not stop talking about being ribbed. Like her father, Ivanka was thin-skinned and could not seem to take a joke.”


A refresher on the skit, which probably helped make Ivanka’s personal brand totally radioactive and unsuitable for even the T.J. Maxx clearance rack:

What’s more, she claims that the skit hurt Donald’s feelings on behalf of his precious baby:

“Donald said to Ivanka, ‘Honey, you’re getting hit so hard! Why are you taking this? Just go back, run the company. I can’t protect you here. I don’t like how hard they’re hitting you,’Manigault Newman writes. “He wanted Jared and Ivanka out of the White House. It hurt him when people attacked her. They were doing it to get to him, and it was working.”

Omarosa is not exactly an unimpeachable source—if literally anybody from the Trump administration told me so much as the time of day, I’d double check it. But frankly, we probably didn’t even need Omarosa to make an educated guess about her reaction to the skit. Anyway: Release the tapes, Omarosa!

Complicit was one of the best SNL skits in a while. My other favorite Trump related skit was “Kellywise”
