Trump on 'SNL'

Over the course of the entire 2016 presidential election, "Saturday Night Live" mocked and trolled Donald Trump. The show tapped actor Alec Baldwin to the play the part of the former host of "The Apprentice." While Baldwin's impression received rave reviews from critics, Trump made a habit of lashing out over "SNL," often venting on social media and making late-night Twitter rants a weekly routine.

In recent weeks, Trump has been quiet, prompting many to wonder why the he hasn't offered his thoughts on the show that has only increased its time targeting the president. According to The Washington Post, and later The Hill, on February 14, Trump is not happy with how his administration has been portrayed.

Over the last two weeks, "Saturday Night Live" has gone beyond poking fun at Donald Trump, and have instead also gone after top members of his administration. Melissa McCarthy has taken on the role of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, which earlier reports indicate bothered Trump due to his male adviser being played by a woman.

Kate McKinnon has also played a variety of roles on "SNL," but it's her portrayal of Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway that has been one of the highlights of the show.

In the recent report by The Washington Post, Donald Trump is reportedly the most upset by the skits that have portrayed Chief Strategist Steven Bannon as the real commander in chief.

"Aides said Trump was especially upset by a sketch that cast White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon as the Grim Reaper manipulating the president," the report said.
