One-by-one, "Saturday Night Live" is checking off the list of potential spoofs within the Trump administration.
A visibly embarrassed Johansson tells Max and the other scientists and investors that he's a simply a dog and doesn't know what he's saying.
Having host Scarlett Johansson play Ivanka was probably an inevitability-the actor's glossy beauty is itself a gloss on Ivanka's: they both end up complimented by association.
"I like park, and leash, and I like Trump". Donald Trump is our president. "One big change is better than business as usual".
But not only that. she did a perfume ad as Ivanka Trump. The catch, though, is that the dog turned out to be a vocal Trump supporter. "What about his record on women's rights?"
The ad features Johansson as the stunning woman who captures every room and has won the hearts of men and women across the nation with her beauty and unique brand of, erm, "feminism". "You didn't afford me a choice when you cut off my balls".
But even though Scarlett may be going through an inner struggle, she's still a professional.

It came down to how we batted on the final day and the first session was going to be crucial, but we unfortunately lost wickets. Sri Lanka could not come out to bat for the second time in the match as nearly the entire final session was lost to rain.
Johansson quickly put a collar on Max and ushered him out for a walk.
There was also a sketch during an episode hosted by David Chappelle, where we see white NY liberals melt down during election night as it becomes clear Trump is going to win. "It's a good thing you're cute, you little dumb ass".
The programme is well-known for mocking President Trump - but now they have moved on to his daughter, Ivanka.
"She's a woman who knows what she wants and knows what she's doing", the voice-over says.
She then gazed at herself in the mirror, only to see Alec Baldwin's Trump reflected back.
"Complicit" isn't a fragrance just available for women.
Ivanka's no dummy, SNL insists, nor just a loving daughter.
