On her return as host of SNL, Natalie Portman reprised her role as Jackie Kennedy to give Melania Trump some advice ahead of the State of the Union address.

Nodding to recent headlines about the president's alleged infidelity, Cecily Strong's Trump asked Kennedy how to be the first lady when "Donald makes it so hard." Portman's Jackie reminded Trump that she's far from the the only first lady to deal with cheating.

But that didn't make Trump feel much better and so a bevy of other former first ladies appeared to help Melania summon the courage to attend the SOTU and "stand there and clap."
