With an iconic look and a habit of calling out people that he disagrees with, U.S. President Donald Trump has long been subjected mockery and impersonation.

The number of famous people and shows to have impersonated the U.S. leader and made fun of his various quirks, from his skin tone to his vocabulary choices, has only grown since his inauguration.

While many will have come across Alec Baldwin’s performances for the Saturday Night Live show, there plenty more Trump impersonators that are worth watching.

“The Simpsons”

The long-running animated television series has been uncannily prescient when it comes to Trump’s presidency. In a recent hit, “The Simpsons” creators take aim at Trump’s hair, making it wipe away his tears as well as move around his head, and his preference for watching TV.

But the show is perhaps best know for predicting Trump’s presidential bid 16 years before it happened, although they did get his campaign slogan wrong with “America, you can be my next ex-wife!”

Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep was filmed impersonated Trump at a production in New York by donning a fat suit and self-tanner and performing a song advising him how to win women.

The award-winning actress later criticized Trump during a speech at the Golden Globes. He replied by calling her “overrated.”

Dirk Nowitzki

The German basketball star surprised viewers with a surprisingly funny impersonation of Trump in a video for his team, the Dallas Mavericks. Nowitzki, in a cheap blonde wig, echoes Trump’s swaggering rhetoric as he promises to score so many points, “it’ll make your head spin.”

Jon Stewart

On “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the king of political satire plays up Trump’s rousing rhetoric by yelling threats at the audience. Like a sad clown smeared with orange dust, Jon Stewart nails the anger.

Rosie O’Donnell

The comedian called out Trump more than a decade before he became president. On “The View” talk show, O’Donnell flips her hair over and purses her lips to criticize how Trump treated Miss USA contestants.

She has been called on multiple times to repeat the act in 2017. Trump, meanwhile, has openly referred to O’Donnell as a “pig.”

Anthony Atamanuik

Dubbed the best impersonator by Rolling Stone magazine, this comedian has earned his own television show with his act. Atamanuik goes all out in his re-enactment, aiming to satirize Trump’s policy decisions.
