Last weekend, "Saturday Night Live" broadcasted one of their most popular episodes in recent history. Much of the show was dedicated to mocking Donald Trump and his administration, which didn't go over well with the new commander in chief.

Trump on "SNL"

Over the last year and a half, Donald Trump has been one of the focal points of "Saturday Night Live." Not long after Trump announced his campaign for president, the show quickly tapped veteran actor Alec Baldwin to play the role of the billionaire real estate mogul, and has received rave reviews ever since.

Since Inauguration Day, "SNL" has spent an increased amount of time on what is going on in the White House, much to the chagrin of the new president. As reported by Politico, and later Mediaite, on February 10, Trump is so upset over the latest episode of "SNL" that he has put a gag order on his advisors and other members of his staff.

In addition to Alec Baldwin returning to play the part of the president, Melissa McCarthy stole the show as she portrayed White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. The skit instantly went viral on social media, with McCarthy being praised for her outstanding impression of Spicer.

According to the Politico report, Spicer wanted to joke about the "Saturday Night Live" episode, but Donald Trump was shut him down. Upon hearing Spicer's request, Trump was quick to push back. "Spicer had proposed cracking a joke about the send-up during his next briefing, or even firing a squirt gun, as McCarthy had done in the sketch," the report explained, before noting, "Trump vetoed the idea."

Conway trouble

Earlier in the week, Politico also broke the story that Donald Trump was "uncomfortable" and "rattled" by the "SNL" skits.

The biggest issue for Trump, according to the report, was that Sean Spicer was played by a woman, Melissa McCarthy, which did not sit well with the new president. When the issue was brought up during a meeting with Republican staffers, Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway allegedly became so angry that she walked out of the room.

Moving forward

Despite the criticism from the White House, Alec Baldwin will return to "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, and will be the show's actual host. In addition, reports confirmed earlier this week that the popular "SNL" skit "Weekend Update" will be given a weekly primetime slot later this year due to high television ratings.
