Once it became official that Donald Trump was going to run for president, it was only a matter of time before satire followed. As seen on "Saturday Night Live" over the last year and a half, Trump has been the butt of many jokes, with actor Alec Baldwin making it happen.

Baldwin on Trump

From the Republican primary, to the general election, to present day, "Saturday Night Live" and Alec Baldwin have mocked Donald Trump every step of the way. Complete with hair and make-up, Baldwin hit every aspect of the billionaire real estate mogul, and received rave reviews in the process.

However, Trump has not been a fan, and has made a habit out of lashing out against the show and Baldwin during numerous Twitter rants. The latest tweet occurred over the weekend when the show used their cold open to hold a satirical version of Trump's recent press conference, which the president-elect criticized the following day on social media. As reported by WNYC on January 16, Baldwin explained what it takes to make the role happen.

On what it takes to transform into a believable, but satirical version of Donald Trump, Alec Baldwin didn't pull any punches.

"We always default to (using adjectives like) 'fantastic,' 'amazing,' 'terrific,'" Baldwin explained, before noting, "He (Trump) never comes up with anything stronger or clearer. Going further, Baldwin went on to say that Trump is "not a great thinker." "He demonstrates that over and over again," Baldwin continued, while warning, "It's kind of harrowing, actually."

Baldwin on Obama

Rubbing salt in the wounds of Donald Trump, Alec Baldwin also went on to give his thoughts about President Obama.

Though Baldwin did admit that he has some complaints, he was mostly pleased with the job Obama did in the White House. Describing Obama as "elegant, thoughtful and gracious," Baldwin said his main regret was that he wasn't more critical of the president when he should have been.

Moving forward

In just four days, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. While the former host of "The Apprentice" celebrates in Washington, D.C. this Friday, Alec Baldwin will join filmmaker Michael Moore at a protest outside Trump Tower in New York City.
