Her father has COVID-19, coronavirus cases are spiking in Florida, but Tiffany Trump still partied maskless in Miami for her 27th birthday in October — and Saturday Night Live didn’t miss the chance to poke fun at both Tiffany, both for the dangerous birthday bacchanal and the perception that she’s an outcast in Donald Trump’s family.
Tiffany Trump’s ‘SNL’ skit
In the “Weekend Update” segment of the NBC comedy series’ Saturday, Oct. 17, episode, cast member Colin Jost interviewed spoof versions of Trump’s adult sons — Eric, played by SNL’s Alex Moffat, and Don Jr., played by cast member Mikey Day. The two sons said they were going to bring Ivanka, Donald’s first daughter — but, in the words of Alex’s Eric, “She doesn’t like us.”
So instead, they brought along Tiffany, the president’s second daughter, played by SNL’s Chloe Fineman. “Haha! Happy birthday to me!” Chloe’s Tiffany said, wearing an askew captain’s hat and swinging around a bottle of champagne.
Colin asked Tiffany about the flak she got in the press for partying in Miami.
“Look, I’m just trying to be a relatable millennial, Colin,” she replied. “But yeah, the media got all butt-hurt because I was partying maskless in Miami with the first 20 randos to slide into my DMs. But I mean, as a stepchild named Tiffany, it’s kind of my job to get faded in South Beach.”
Tiffany’s appearance in the segment, however, confused Alex’s Eric, who asked, “Don, who is that lady?”
“That’s your sister, Eric,” Mikey’s Don Jr. replied. “Wait, Tiff, I don’t know if you and your sister have officially met, actually.”
“Uh, not in person, no,” Chloe’s Tiffany confirmed.
Alex’s Eric started calling Chloe’s Tiffany “Notvanka,” and Mikey’s Don Jr. told him not to use that nickname. “It’s OK!” Chloe’s Tiffany responded. “Dad does.”
“Were you worried about spreading COVID to your party guests considering your father just had it?” Colin asked Chloe’s Tiffany.
“Uh, no, Daddy has always taken the 6-foot social distance rule very seriously with me,” she replied.
