** Chappelle's monologue in the same episode was itself awesome: it was his first time hosting the show and it was the first show after the 2016 election, and he took the opportunity to calm everyone down, without downplaying what had just happened, and reminding everyone that for some people, this was just confirmation of what they already suspected.
--->'''Dave Chappelle''': "Blue Lives Matter." What, was you ''born'' a police? That is not a blue life. Thatís a blue ''suit''. You donít like it, take the suit off, find a new job. ĎCause I tell you, if I could quit being black today, Iíd be out the game.

* Not quite Trump, exactly, but Creator/MelissaMcCarthy's surprise cameo as White House press secretary Sean Spicer, parodying his extremely combative relations with the press and his bordering on InsaneTrollLogic embracing of "alternative facts" in pursuit of the administration's agenda, was widely embraced as a particularly effective satire of the administration. And once again, it apparently got under Trump's skin to the point where several commentators [[http://www.politico.com/story/2017/02/melissa-mccarthy-sean-spicer-234715 openly wondered about the chances of Spicer keeping his job]].

* After the show got a lot of flack for letting Trump host in the middle of his presidential campaign, which is often accused of getting many people more accepting of it, after the election it's proven especially brutal in its parodies of him, to the point where it genuinely gets under his skin and he feels the need to insult the show almost every week.
