Seth Meyers Subtly Roasts Ivanka And Melania Trump At CFDA Awards

But some were not amused.

Ivanka and Melania Trump were joke fodder for Seth Meyers at the CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday night. 

The “Late Night” comedian hosted “fashion’s Oscars” at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. In between jokes about Balenciaga’s “Ikea” bag and the RompHim, he took aim at FLOTUS and the first daughter, USA Today reported. 

“It’s harder than ever to separate fashion from politics,” he said. “First lady Melania Trump made headlines recently after she decided not to wear a head cover while visiting Saudi Arabia, which was especially shocking since her husband wears a head covering literally everywhere.”

He also broached the subject of Ivanka’s Nordstrom saga

“Big year for fashion designer Ivanka Trump,” he said. “I’ve heard her clothes are flying off the shelves in Nordstrom.”

Apparently that didn’t go over so well. 

Jokes aside, the CFDA stage was used to celebrate female empowerment and the push for greater human rights under the Trump administration when Gloria Steinem, Cecile Richards and Janelle Monáe accepted their CFDA Board of Directors’ Tribute Awards. 

“Now, there is more activism than I have ever seen in my lifetime,” Steinem said. “And maybe, just maybe, thanks to all of you in this room and billions more around the world who are woke, we are not the richest but we are the majority and we are woke and maybe we are about to be free.”
