NEW YORK (SBG) - The women closest to Donald Trump - third wife Melania, older daughter Ivanka, younger daughter Tiffany, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, and director of African-American outreach Omarosa - are finally saying "boy, bye." Well, at least their "Saturday Night Live" alter-egos are finished with the Republican presidential nominee in a parody of Beyonce's "Sorry" (from her latest album "Lemonade") called "Melanianade."

"Here lies my last nerve, Donald. I've stood by your side this whole campaign, your beautiful, dutiful Melania. I can't take it anymore. I am your wife," laments "Melania" (Cecily Strong).

From the back of a limousine, the other women announce who they are to Trump: "your daughter" says "Ivanka" (Emily Blunt), "your mouthpiece" says "Conway" (Kate McKinnon), "your one black friend" says "Omarosa" (Sasheer Zamata), "your other daughter" says "Tiffany" (Vanessa Bayer).

"And you're breaking us," the swaying ladies chant in unison, "taking it for granted that we'll always be there."

"Melania" warns, "But one day soon, Donald, you may wake up and this bomb pussy-bow blouse will be gone," referring to the hot-pink top Trump's wife wore to the second presidential debate, two days after a 2005 tape surfaced in which he said he could "grab [women] by the p***y" because he was a star.

Here's where the "SNL" short goes full-on Bey. The women traipse around Trump Tower, airing their grievances about the outspoken face of the GOP. But they're "not sorry."

"Conway" sings, "Always screwin' up, expectin' me to clean it up," before borrowing her boss' "The Apprentice" catchphrase, "you're fired."

"Ivanka" muses, "I'm supposed to be the brains here, what the hell have I been thinkin'?" She also mourns, "there goes my friendship with Chelsea Clinton. I'll miss you, Chelsea Clinton. Call me, Chelsea!"

"Tiffany," Trump's 23-year-old daughter with second wife Marla Maples, rants, "I killed on that convention speech, no lie, but I'll never be Ivanka in your eyes ... don't call me Tiffany Trump, I'm Tiff Maples."

"Omarosa" opts to leave a resignation letter that simply reads, "Dear Mr. Trump: I quit."

Toward the end of the black-and-white music video, running mate "Mike Pence" (Beck Bennett) also makes an appearance, pouting, "You only want me when I'm not there."

Their final message to Trump is clear - he's just "that guy with the weird hair."

But when the candidate himself (Alec Baldwin) finally shows up, they follow his orders without hesitation. In any case, they're "done thinkin' 'bout you."

The real Trump didn't find any of the skits in which he was featured funny. Though he hosted "SNL" just last fall, he said it was "time to retire the boring and unfunny show," which he accused of rigging the election.
