When Donald Trump first announced he was going to run for president back in June 2015, it was only a matter of time before comedians took aim at the billionaire real estate mogul. After just three weeks in office, Trump's presidency has led to "saturday night Live" seeing a resurgence in popularity, which was on display once again on Saturday night.

"SNL" on Conway

Not long after Donald Trump was officially a candidate for president, veteran actor Alec Baldwin took the role of the new commander in chief on "Saturday Night Live." Baldwin's performance quickly received rave reviews from critics, much to the chagrin of the former host of "The Apprentice." With each appearance on "SNL," Trump would make a habit out of lashing out on Twitter, referring to Baldwin as "not funny," and the entire show as "sad." In the weeks leading up to the election, Trump was so upset by one of the show's skits, that he called for "SNL" to be cancelled.

In the weeks since his inauguration, Trump and his team have remained a top target, and reports have found that the new president is so rattled that he doesn't even want to offer his own remarks. As seen on "Saturday Night Live" on February 11, one of Trump's top staff members was the prime target, leading to results that will most certainly irritate the commander in chief.

While Sean Spicer was trolled on last week's "Saturday Night Live," it was Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway that was the target this week.

Played by Kate McKinnon, "Conway" was shown as media-obsessed and sex-crazed as she threatened CNN host "Jake Tapper," played by Beck Bennett, unless she was allowed to return to the network, playing off the real-life feud between the former campaign manager and the cable news channel. The humorous version of Conway asked, "What if I do a free commercial for Ivanka’s shoes live on air, would you like that, baby?" The CNN host eventually caved, with Conway falling out of a window before commenting, "I am fine, but I do only have three lives left."

Moving forward

After last week's episode, Donald Trump was reportedly so angered by the fact that the satirical version of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was played by a female, Melissa McCarthy, that he vetoed the idea that his staff should mention the show in public.

After Conway during the latest "SNL," it's unknown whether or not Trump will offer his opinion, but it's likely not going to sit well with the new president.
