The biting humour of 'Saturday Night Live' took aim at another Trump this week: first daughter Ivanka.

The long-standing comedy show skewered the president's elder daughter with a faux perfume ad, starring actress Scarlett Johansson. The name of the perfume? Complicit.

It was the first time Johansson portrayed Ivanka Trump. Actress Margot Robbie depicted her in a sketch in the fall.

Ivanka Trump was a popular surrogate for her father on the campaign trail. She stepped away from executive roles at her self-named lifestyle brand and with the family business to move her young family to Washington, D.C., when Trump took office.

She has had an active presence at White House meetings and has been advocating for several issues, including for new childcare policies.

The White House and a representative for Ivanka Trump did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Saturday Night Live.
