Melania Trump Has Had Enough Of Donald In SNL’s Lemonade Parody

The women closest to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump—his wife and daughters—have stayed somewhat on the quiet side as allegations of inappropriate behavior by the candidate have poured in over the last few weeks. But now, in Saturday Night Live‘s latest music-video parody, it looks like Melania Trump (played flawlessly by Cecily Strong) has taken a page out of Beyoncé’s book.

In a riff on the singer’s game-changing visual album, Lemonade, Melania and other women close to Trump—including daughters Ivanka (celebrity host Emily Blunt) and Tiffany (Vanessa Bayer), Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon), and Trump’s “one black friend” Omarosa (Sasheer Zamata)—perform Melanianade to let us all know that they’re done defending Trump and his treatment of women time and time again.

“I’ve stood by your side this whole campaign, your beautiful, dutiful Melania. I can’t take it anymore,” Strong-as-Melania announces in the beginning of the video.

The ladies all have a chance to air their grievances in the black-and-white video to the tune of Bey’s “Sorry.” Conway is sick of cleaning up Donald’s messes, while Ivanka bemoans her ruined friendship with Chelsea Clinton. Tiffany sings that she’ll never live up to Ivanka’s standards in Trump’s eyes and resolved to change her name to “Tiff Maples,” while Omarosa hands in her resignation.

In the end, they all remain by Trump’s side, but not before Melania declares, “Without us you wouldn’t be standing there—you’d just be that guy with the weird hair.”
