As the pressure continues to mount on Donald Trump due to a wide-range of scandals and controversy, the administration was once again used as a punchline. Returning to "Saturday Night Live," Alec Baldwin made sure to poke fun at the president, with Stormy Daniels, Ben Stiller and others adding to the humor.

'SNL' on Trump

It all started when Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton took part in their first debate in the 2016 presidential election.

The following week, "Saturday Night Live" hired veteran actor Alec Baldwin to play the role of the former host of "The Apprentice," which resulted in Trump lashing out on Twitter on more than one occasion. Baldwin's portrayal of Trump received rave reviews as "SNL" saw their ratings spike in the process. Since then, Baldwin and the cast of "SNL" have continued to mock Trump and his administration, though the president has remained mostly silent since being elected, as he's been forced to deal with an onslaught of controversy.

As seen during the May 5 edition of "Saturday Night Live," Alec Baldwin returned to the satirical role of Donald Trump during the show's cold open.

Returning to his role as Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, actor Ben Stiller was shown making a phone call on the streets of NYC to Baldwin's Trump in the White House. "I miss you so much!" Stiller said. "How are you holding up in prison?" Baldwin asked. "I'm not in prison," Stiller responded, before the mock Trump said, "Don't worry, give it time." The FBI were then shown listening in on the conversation in disbelief.

After putting the satirical Donald Trump on hold, Ben Stiller's Michael Cohen called the president's former personal doctor Dr. Harold N. Bornstein, whose offices were raided by the FBI last week. The skit continued as Stiller's Cohen called Trump's new lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was shown on the set of Fox News.

Later in the skit, a mock version of Melania Trump called Stiller and asked if she would be able to testify against Trump in court, before the satirical Cohen received phone calls from Omarosa , Mike Pence, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner. The cold open ended with Stiller making a phone call to Stormy Daniels, who played herself in the skit, with Trump entering in on a three-way call to flirt with the adult film star.

Moving forward

While Alec Baldwin, "Saturday Night Live" and others use Donald Trump as a prime source of comedy, the commander in chief and his team are focused on more serious issues.

With the Russian investigation heating up, the Stormy Daniels affair scandal remaining in the headlines, with the likes of Michael Cohen and Rudy Giuliani adding fuel to the fire, Trump has done his best to deflect the drama and focus on the more positive aspect of his presidency. While this has been Trump's strategy, his current approval rating is hovering around just 40 percent and is showing no signs of improving anytime soon.
