Just a day after Donald Trump and Alec Baldwin engaged in a Twitter war, the actor returned to the cast of "Saturday Night Live." As expected, the president was the top target.

"SNL" on Trump

Not long after Donald Trump announced his campaign for president, he quickly became a prime target for comedy. Whether it was on late night television or stand up comedy, Trump's persona gave endless material to those who wanted to take advantage of it.

After Trump's first general election debate with Hillary Clinton, "Saturday Night Live" brought on veteran actor Alec Baldwin to play the role, which quickly received rave reviews. Baldwin's performance brought high ratings to "SNL," resulting in an Emmy win for himself, much to the chagrin of Trump who has been known to take out his frustrations about the program on social media.

Since then, Donald Trump and Alec Baldwin have not been shy in expressing their real life hatred for each other, which continued during an exchange on Twitter earlier this week. Fast froward to present day and Baldwin returned to "SNL" during the March 3 cold open where he reenacted the president's recent speech on gun violence.

"Last week I met with a group teenage survivors of gun violence and I wanted to assure them that I 'hear you' and that 'I care,'" Baldwin said, mocking Trump for having to keep notes on what talking points to use.

"It's clear something has to change.

We have to take a look at mental health. Which I have so much of. I have one of the healthiest mentals. My mentals are so high that we have to respect the law," Alex Baldwin said as the president. "No one loves the Second Amendment and due process more than me. But maybe we just take everyone's guns away. No one is allowed to have a gun, not even whites," he said.

"I met with the NRA and they gave me 30 million reasons not to change a thing," Alec Baldwin went on to say. "The youth of America deserve to feel save and secure in their schools because I can only run into so many schools and save everyone. I would be running so fast that the guy with the gun wouldn't even know what hit him," he added. Baldwin's Trump then shifted focus to the recent departure of Hope Hicks, mocking the president by saying, "I hate to see her go but I love watching her walk away. I mean Jared Kushner is basically the hottest chick in the place but he's probably going to jail soon."

Moving forward

While "Saturday Night Live" and other forms of comedy have used Donald Trump as a humorous punchline, the president is facing more important and serious issues in the White House.

As members of his administration continue to find themselves out of the White House, with Communications Director Hope Hicks being the latest example, only time will tell how the rest of the Trump presidency plays out.
