SNL Skit Hilariously Skewers Trump's Misogyny with Spoof of Beyoncé Video

In a brilliant music video parody of Beyoncé's "Sorry" (off the Lemonade album), "Saturday Night Live" rhetorically asks a good question: How the heck can any woman continue to support, defend or even interact with Donald Trump after the misogynist things he's said and the allegations from a growing list of women that he has sexually assaulted them?

In "Melanianade," Donald's wife Melania (played by Cecily Strong), daughters Ivanka and Tiffany (host Emily Blunt and Vanessa Bayer), campaign manager Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon), and his "one black friend" Omarosa (Sasheer Zamata) have had enough of his nonsense. The performance even pays respect to Beyoncé's choreography and spoken-word intro to the original song.
