Manigault Newman claims in her book, “Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House,” that Trump could not stop talking about the “offensive” sketch, according to an excerpt reported on by People.

Manigault Newman writes that Trump, “like her father,” could not “seem to take a joke.”


“At the senior staff meeting, Ivanka couldn’t stop bemoaning it, how offensive it was, how ridiculous it was,” Manigault Newman, writes. “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,” Manigault Newman continues. “Like her father, Ivanka was thin-skinned and could not seem to take a joke.”

Manigault Newman was referencing to a March 2017 sketch on the late-night comedy show, in which actress Scarlett Johansson portrayed Trump in a perfume ad.

“She’s beautiful. She’s powerful. She’s — complicit,” the ad’s narrator said. “She’s a woman who knows what she wants. And knows what she’s doing. Complicit.”

“Complicit, the fragrance for the woman who could stop all this — but won’t. Also available in a cologne for Jared.”

Trump fired back at "SNL" shortly after the sketch aired, saying she was being complicit by participating in a "force for good."

“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.”

Manigault Newman’s book has caused a furor in Washington. It includes a series of incendiary accusations from her time serving in the Trump administration.

Manigault Newman, who served as the director of communications for the White House's Office of Public Liaison, claims that Trump repeatedly used a racial slur during tapings of his reality show “The Apprentice,” which Manigault Newman appeared on.

She also accuses chief of staff John KellyJohn Francis KellyMORE of firing her when she came close to getting audio of Trump using the N-word.

The explosive book also contains Manigault Newman’s commentary regarding the president’s relationship with his elder daughter and adviser.

“As long as I’d known Trump, I’d observed the way he hugs, touches, and kisses Ivanka; the way she calls him Daddy,” Manigault Newman writes.

“In my opinion, based on my observations, their relationship goes right up to the line of appropriate father/daughter behavior and jumps right over it,” Manigault Newman continues. “I believe he covets his daughter. It’s uncomfortable to watch them.”

The White House has denied all of Manigault Newman’s accusations, and the president called her a “dog” in a tweet on Tuesday.
