According to The Washington Post, Donald Trump is extremely upset about a Saturday Night Live skit from two weeks ago. The skit depicts Steve Bannon as the Grim Reaper manipulating Trump.

In the sketch, which aired earlier this month, Bannon — portrayed by an actor in a Grim Reaper costume — encourages Trump to engage in a number of unprofessional and confrontational phone calls with world leaders, including Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Bannon then asks Trump, portrayed by Alec Baldwin, to get up from his desk. Trump responds, “Yes, of course, Mr. President,” before sitting at a smaller desk and playing with a toy.

Trump also reportedly got upset with the late-night sketch comedy show after actress Melissa McCarthy portrayed White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Of particular issue to the president, Politico reported, was that his press secretary was played by a woman.

Baldwin’s portrayal of Trump has become a staple on SNL, and the president has made his ire for show known. He has taken to Twitter several times to criticize the show, tweeting just last month that it was “the worst of NBC.”
