Ever since the early days of the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump has been the butt of the joke for many comedians. After a month-long break, "Saturday Night Live" returned and made sure to take a stiff shot at the president right out of the gate.

SNL on Trump

Not long after Donald Trump made his presidential announcement offical, it was only a matter of time before comedians took notice and made the billionaire real estate mogul a corner stone of their act. While many have made jokes about the former host of "The Apprentice," none have quite done it like the cast of "Saturday Night Live." After tapping actor Alec Baldwin to play a satirical role of the president, the show quickly received rave reviews and watched their ratings increase in the process.

However, Trump has not been pleased, and lashed out on a weekly basis during the election at both Baldwin and the entire cast of SNL. However, since being sworn into the White House, Trump has been silent with his reaction to the show, though behind the scene reports have claimed the president is not happy with how his administration has been portrayed. After over two months in office, Trump has been surrounded by constant controversy, which was highlighted during the April 8 edition of "Saturday Night Live" on NBC.

Kicking off the show with their cold open, "Saturday Night Live" and Alec Baldwin quickly trolled Donald Trump.

At a mock version of Kentucky town hall meeting, "Trump" made a surprise appearance to brag to those in attendance about his recent meetings with world leaders, as well as his attack on Syria. "What a difference 50 tomahawk missiles can make!" Baldwin's Trump said in reference to the media no longer speaking as much about the Russian scandal.

"You people stay by me no matter what," he went on to say to his supporters at the town hall, noting, "It's like you found a finger in your chili but you still eat the chili."

After taking a question from a voter in the audience who asked about losing his job in coal, Alec Baldwin fired back "God I love coal!," Baldwin said, "As president I will do everything I can to make sure you work in coal for the rest of your lives." "When it comes to America, men work in two places; coal mines and Goldman Sachs," he continued.

The satirical Donald Trump then took additional questions, all poking fun at the president's recent failures on health care, in-fighting in the Republican party, and Melania Trump not living in the White House.

As "Saturday Night Live" continues to ride their rating's success against the backlash of Donald Trump, the president has more important things to worry about then those who mock him. With the Russian scandal growing by the day, a potential war with Syria possibly on the horizon, as well as in-fighting in his own administration and the inability to unite the Republican party, Trump is starting off his time in White House with problems that don't seem to be going away anytime soon, with the team at SNL most likely to exploit it all as the weeks and months go on.
