*** The show also changed it's portrayal of both HillaryClinton and DonaldTrump drastically over the course of the campaign. In early skits Trump, while still portrayed as a bully, was established as fairly intelligent and a DeadpanSnarker, before evolving into StupidEvil. Clinton, on the other hand, started out as PowerHunger and with NoSocialSkills, before becoming the OnlySaneMan in the face of Trump's lunacy.

* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: In the December 03, 2016 cold open, both Creator/AlecBaldwin as Creator/DonaldTrump and Creator/KateMcKinnon as Kellyanne Conway [[BreakingTheFourthWall look into the camera]] and point out that Trump really did retweet a 16-year-old boy.

* TheGrimReaper: In a rather pointed joke, Creator/DonaldTrump's Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, is portrayed as this.

* BrickJoke: The first episode had as part of "Weekend Update" a joke-free segment in which Laraine Newman reports to Chevy Chase about a series of 38 serial murders at the Blaine Hotel. At the end of "Weekend Update", announcer Don Pardo says "Guests of 'Saturday Night' stay at the fabulous Blaine Hotel!"

** The cold open of Season 42's Alec Baldwin episode has Press Secretary Sean Spicer (Melissa [=McCarthy=]) tell the press that President Donald Trump will take the appeals court that stopped his travel ban to ''The People's Court''. A later sketch has Trump (Baldwin) on ''The People's Court'' doing just that.

** The "Leslie Wants to Play Trump" sketch from Season 42's Alec Baldwin episode continues with the Leslie Jones/Kyle Mooney relationship from the "Love and Leslie" sketch in the Dave Chappelle episode earlier that season.

* TitleSequence: One thing that SNL has been known to do, constantly, is to update the opening title sequence drastically (as well as the logo) from time to time, in order to look fresh. Only one thing has remained consistent in the sequences, which is that they always feature scenes of New York City locations and goings on,[[note]]the exception is Season 23's opening, which did not feature New York at all[[/note]] either going about their business, showboating for the camera, or being a part of the sequence skits as they were in season 29. Even the ThemeTune has changed frequently, only starting in season 12 to have a more consistent melody to it (and starting in season 24 to also feature a sax solo halfway through that has extended itself over the years).

It's also rather long, which, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04kop3CvE_s as this video demonstrates,]] allows for time to prepare the set.

** For a couple months, the show portrayed Kellyanne Conway as a guilt-ridden broken shell over her role in Donald Trump becoming president. After it became clear that she wasn't going away any time soon and was still an avid Trump supporter, they switched gears as announced with a spoof of "Roxie" from ''Theatre/{{Chicago}}'' the day after the inauguration.

** Michelle, the reporter on the "Around the Town" beat, is clearly very attracted to the various women she interviews, but her socially awkward, desperate and inappropriate flirting style really puts them off.
