Scarlett yet again made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live episode 11 with Kevin Hart as host. Again Scarlett reprises her role as Ivanka Trump for the segment White House Tree Trimming Cold Open and again was seen at the end of the show ice skating with the cast. At this time we only have HQ screen captures up in the gallery as no stills are out yet but I’m hoping tomorrow for some to hit the web.
There was no way Saturday Night Live was going to close out its banner year without one more trip to the location that proved so easy to mock in 2017: Donald Trump’s White House. The opening sketch hung on the concept of Trump and his cohorts bidding a snarky farewell to the many political figures, like Sean Spicer, who didn’t last the year.
Melissa McCarthy wasn’t on hand to kick around Spicer one last time, but S.N.L. did get an A-list star (in addition to Alec Baldwin) to give the sketch some added holiday value. Reprising her appearance from back in March, Scarlett Johansson swung by to roll out her Ivanka Trump impression one last time this year.
The parade of impressions from the regular cast, however, easily highlighted the year’s M.V.P.s, as Mikey Day’s Donald Jr. and Alex Moffat’s Eric Trump handily stole the show with their dumb and dumber routine.
Leslie Jones also made an appearance just outside the White House window as freshly fired (or was she?) Trump employee Omarosa Manigault. Jones repeated the impression just a few sketches later when she crashed “Weekend Update.”
But Omarosa wasn’t the only repeat appearance on the show. As the credits rolled and host Kevin Hart said his goodbyes alongside the rest of the cast on the ice rink at Rockefeller Center, Johansson and her newly-official partner, Colin Jost, could be seen grinning, holding hands, and skating off together.
We can assume that Johansson’s guest role was at least in part a show of support for Jost on his first episode back as head writer of S.N.L.
