As the number of sexual assault accusers against Donald Trumpcontinues to mount, we can’t help but wonder how the women in his life are dealing with the fact that maybe Mr. Trump isn’t who they thought he was (or maybe he’s exactly who they thought he was). Well, according to the writers at Saturday Night Live, they’re mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore.

On Saturday night's episode of SNL, a digital short called “Melanianade” featured Cecily Strong as Melania Trump, Emily Blunt and Vanessa Bayer as daughters Ivanka and Tiffany, Kate McKinnon as campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, and Sasheer Zamata as The Apprentice villain Omarosa. The scorned women banded together and did their best Beyoncé parody with the best cover of “Sorry” we’ve seen to date.

While the original song clapped back at Beyoncé’s nemesis “Becky with the good hair,” Melania’s version—which she swears she wrote herself—was a scathing indictment of "that guy with the weird hair." Alec Baldwin as Trump and Beck Bennett as Mike Pence both make cameos, but this one’s all about the ladies. In particular, forgotten daughter Tiffany finally gets her moment in the spotlight as she smashes a portrait of her father and tells him "I’ll never be Ivanka in your eyes."

The clip marked SNL’sthird straight week of ruthless Trump parodies, which also featured a new installment of “Melania’s Moments” in which Trump’s wife dreams of escaping their gilded 5th Avenue lair so she can “see a bus, see a hill, or even feel the texture of sand.” Even the real Donald Trump took notice of SNL’s relentlessness, calling the show, which he hosted just year, “boring and unfunny.”

If Trump is in fact unenthused over SNL’s raucous take on this madcap election, he should probably stop providing them with so much material
