The NBC sketch series spoofed President Donald Trump’s communications honcho and skewered the commander in chief’s recent Twitter tirade chiding Nordstrom for dumping his daughter Ivanka’s namesake brand.
With full Spicer-esque bravado, McCarthy slammed the press for ignoring acts of “terrorism” in the parodied media conference, mocking reports on how retailers have abandoned his daughter’s business.
“This week when Nordstrom decided to stop selling Ivanka Trump’s line of clothing and accessories,” McCarthy said, “That’s Nordstrom’s loss. In fact, I’m wearing one of her bangles now.”
With deadpan delivery, McCarthy added: “It’s shimmery, elegant and at $39.99 it’s affordable.”
The shameless plug continued with QVC graphics and another call to attention on Ivanka Trump’s footwear brand.
“And don’t let me get started on her shoes — because these babies are a head-turner,” McCarthy quipped, propping a foot up to reveal a graphic-print heel.
The comedy bit comes after President Trump slammed Nordstrom on Twitter for its decision to sack the brand, citing its poor performance: “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom,” he tweeted Wednesday. “She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”
Nordstrom is not the only retailer dumping Ivanka Trump. Other stores such as TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Neiman Marcus also announced plans last week to cut the brand’s wares.
