In an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Rudolph revealed the secret behind nailing Ivanka Trump's voice.

'She's always talking like she works in a lingerie store, a little bit,' she revealed.

Doing her best impression of the president's assistant, Maya donned a side smile and put on her best Ivanka voice to say: 'Like, if you want to get the matching panties, you can get them, but they're $14.95.'

She also had some advice for Ivanka: 'Don't quote stuff [mimic quotation marks around phrases] that's real because it makes you look really stupid.'

The comedic actress also explained how she nabbed a spot on the hilarious A-list sketch show.

When asked in her interview why she thought she deserved a role on the hit NBC late-night comedy showcase, Maya said: 'Because I like wearing wigs.'

If only we could use that line in other job interviews.
