For decades, "Saturday Night Live" has taken shots at politicians on both sides of the aisle. Whether they are Republican or Democrat, presidential candidates are never safe from the satire of "Saturday Night Live," much to the chagrin of president-elect Donald Trump.

SNL on Trump

The 2016 presidential election will go down as one of the most controversial in recent history. With the candidacy of Donald Trump, American politics was turned on its head and changed for the foreseeable future. From the moment Trump announced his campaign, critics were quick to pounce as the billionaire real estate mogul referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." In the year and half since the announcement, Trump has presented an unorthodox campaign that has come under fire by the mainstream media.

Comedians, on the other hand, have viewed Trump's election as a gift, as the new president-elect naturally provides endless material. On "Saturday Night Live," actor Alec Baldwin has received rave reviews over his portrayal of Trump, though the former host of "The Apprentice" hasn't been happy about it. As seen on his offical Twitter account on December 17, Baldwin is making his return.

The last time Alec Baldwin appeared on "Saturday Night Live," Donald Trump tweeted out in rage.

Referring to the show as "unwatchable" and "biased," Trump also hit back Baldwin's impersonation as "not funny" and "sad." In response, Baldwin tweeted Trump back and said that he would stop playing the part if the president-elect would release his tax returns. As of press time, Trump has failed to so. On Saturday, Baldwin returned to Twitter with a tweet that reads "SNL tonight," with an attached image of himself dressed as Trump backstage.

In a move unlike his recent behavior, Trump has yet to respond.

Moving forward

Not long after Donald Trump picked up the win over Hillary Clinton, he spoke with CBS' "60 Minutes," vowing to be "very restrained" in his future use of Twitter and other forms of social media.

Despite his claim, Trump has only increased his presence on social media, lashing out on a variety of topics. In addition to his attacks on "Saturday Night Live," Trump has targeted other forms of entertainment, including the cast of the musical "Hamilton," while also going after union leaders, the media, and the entire country of China. It's unknown if Trump will continue his controversial use of Twitter once he's in the White House, though reports have suggested that the Secret Service could be involved.
