Actress Scarlett Johansson stopped by “Saturday Night Live” this weekend to help the cast take one more shot at President Donald Trump in 2017.

In the last show of the year, the show opened with Alec Baldwin reprising his role of President Trump, this time delivering a “special message from the White House.”

Baldwin’s President Trump was joined by Cecily Strong playing Melania Trump as he read off names of White House staffers that didn’t last the entire year and hangs them as ornaments on the White House Christmas tree.

After several ornaments were placed, Baldwin’s Trump asked “Where’s my next ornament?”

That’s when Johansson, playing Ivanka Trump, hit the set and replied “I’m right here, father.”

Baldwin responded by asking where her husband, Jared Kushner, was.

“He’s packing a go bag before the FBI arrives.” she said. “I will always remember that one time I heard him talk.”

Johansson, who is dating SNL head writer and “Weekend Update” anchor Colin Jost, according to Vanity Fair, produced a Roy Moore ornament and said “Well, as I said, there’s a special place in hell, and we’re all there.”

The scene was also notable for an appearance by cast member Leslie Jones playing her Omarosa Manigault-Newman character and poking fun at her recent firing from the White House.

Jones appeared outside, banging on the White House window and screaming “Take me back. I’ll always love you.”
