Melania Trump "can't talk" and she "can't give speeches," according to Ivana Trump. Melania's husband, while taking his first foray into funny on SNL Saturday night, proved he might have a career in comedy if he doesn't win the Republican nomination.

The New York Daily News reports that Ivana Trump is very supportive of her ex's political ambitions. She was told she would have made a wonderful First Lady.

“Yes, but the problem is, what is he going to do with his third wife?” Ivana asked.

She was referring to Melania Trump, 45, who married Donald Trump ten years ago. “She can’t talk, she can’t give a speech, she doesn’t go to events, she doesn’t (seem to) want to be involved.”

If Donald Trump moves forward in his campaign, he'll definitely have Ivana Trump's support.

“He’ll be a great President,” she said. “He’ll surround himself with the right people. He was always meant to be a politician.”

Perhaps he was meant to be a part-time comedian, too. It's hard to tell, however, if Donald Trump is really funny or if he's simply one of those people who--when becoming self-deprecating--is a lot of fun to poke fun at. Daughter Ivanka Trump made a cameo appearance, so she obviously can roll with the punches, too.

Donald Trump actually has a long relationship with SNL. Saturday Night Live cast members have portrayed him in past and recent years--Taran Killam and Darrell Hammond, for example--were on hand in full Trump regalia and persona.

Donald and Melania Trump walked the red carpet at SNL's 40th Anniversary event earlier this year.

Cecily Strong portrayed Melania Trump on Saturday night, playing her off as a rather clueless woman.

“The White House is the smallest house Donald and I have ever lived in,” she said.

Hopefully Melania Trump can take a joke. Donald Trump made it abundantly clear that he can take what he dishes out.

Maybe Ivana Trump has inadvertently provided fodder for the SNL writers with her comments about Melania Trump.

Can't you see a future skit where Donald Trump enlists Ivana to teach Melania proper First Lady skills?
