Sad Melania Trump Finds Solace In Customer Service Phone Calls In Surprisingly Touching SNL Short
She’s often been the butt of many ruthless jokes.
Drop in Ivanka! Or maybe a leaflet drop of Melania lingerie pics. Nth Korea would love those.

And although SNL is almost definitely referencing Melania in this sketch to ultimately make people laugh, the bit ended up being surprisingly touching.
In it, actor Kumail Nanjiani plays a call center employee who happens to get Melania on the line, and they end up becoming friends.
Now did the writers of the sketch make fun of her vapid, fashion loving persona in the bit? Of course, but they also hit a more existential place that’s very, very easy to relate to.
And if you’ve ever worked in customer service then it’s all too relatable.
