Ever since the election of Donald Trump last November, "Saturday Night Live" has increased their devotion to poking fun at the new administration. While the show has received rave reviews, the White House is not pleased.

Conway on "SNL"

When Donald Trump announced that he was going to run for president back in June 2015, the producers over at "Saturday Night Live" quickly got on the horn and hired actor Alec Baldwin to play the role of the new commander in chief. In the months that would follow, "SNL" would mock and troll the former host of "The Apprentice," much to the chagrin of the main target.

Trump made a habit out of lashing out on Twitter, routinely bashing Baldwin's performance, while calling for the show to be cancelled. As reported by Politico on February 7, Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway was not pleased when she asked about the latest episode of "SNL."

According to the Politico report, Kellyanne Conway and fellow White House advisor Boris Epshteyn meet with nearly 100 communication staffers for Republican congressman on Monday afternoon. While the meeting appeared to start well, it quickly went off the rails when the subject of "Saturday Night Live" was brought up.

During one of the meetings, Kellyanne Conway was asked about the recent skit on "SNL" where Melissa McCarthy played a satirical version of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

When Conway was asked if she thought the bit was funny, her face reportedly "turned to stone," becoming visibly angry, and ended the meeting. A source close to the administration confirmed that "They definitely didn't find it funny," while noting, "then they walked out."

Moving forward

While Donald Trump is normally vocal in his opposition to "Saturday Night Live," he was surprisingly silent following the most recent episode.

Politico further reported on Monday night that the new president was left "rattled" by how bad his advisors have come across, and was bothered that Sean Spicer was depicted by a woman. In addition, The Hill reported on Tuesday that "SNL" will spin-off their popular "Weekend Update" segment into a primetime series as their ratings have increased since the election.
