Rosie O'Donnell Trolls Steve Bannon on Twitter with Profile Picture

"SNL" has found ratings success with its portrayals of Trump administration members, including Alec Baldwin as President Trump, Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway, and Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer.

She's even started thinking about what it might look like, changing her Twitter profile picture today to a fairly creepy Photoshop of herself combined with Bannon. As a guest performer, Baldwin has portrayed Trump for just one sketch, but as host, will he reprise the role throughout the episode?

The star tweeted her continuing criticism of Trump on New Year's Day.

According to a report in Politico, Trump was especially angry that Spicer was portrayed on SNL (below) by a woman because it made him look "weak".

"Available - if called I will serve", the actress tweeted in response to a fan who suggested she play Bannon. Melissa has Spice. I would need a few days to prepare.

The idea being that Trump's main celebrity foil impersonating the man who most consider to be pulling Trump's strings in office would be enough to drive the President legitimately insane.

She wrote: "DONALD TRUMP IS MENTALLY UNSTABLE", linking to a CNN article in which biographer Harry Hurt III says he was thrown out of a golf course owned by Trump.

He said in a phone interview on Monday that it doesn't really matter what he thinks about the skit, and that: 'I would much rather have the focus be on the president's agenda and the success he's having'.

O'Donnell, however, has stood her ground.

Clinton did not mention O'Donnell but Trump responded using her name, implying she was the only woman he'd ever verbally attacked.

But on Tuesday O'Donnell said that it was "just a amusing idea".
