It figures that Donald Trump didn't care for the Lemonade spoof on Saturday Night Live (Oct. 15) this weekend. It did, after all, make it seem like the women in the under-fire Republican presidential candidate's life were starting to have second thoughts about him. The Donald has called for the show to be canceled in the wake of its clever takedown of him in the form of the "Melanianade" skit, which joins a growing list of comedic homages to Beyoncé's instant classic Lemonade album. 

Here are our seven favorite Lemonade riffs:


Ellen DeGeneres hops off the phone with Becky (you know, with the good hair) as she tries to outrun Bey's swinging bat.

Seth Meyers falls victim to the "Beyoncé Lemonade Late Night Aftermath."

An earlier SNL bit called "The Day Beyoncé Turned Black" recalls the time when white people realized their Queen B was actually black.

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert puts on his yellow best, picks up a bat named "Mayonnaise" and just starts swinging on craft services.

The Late Late Show's James Corden braids his hair, gets in the bath and, yes, swings a bat for "Lemonjames: A Visual Monologue." 

Jimmy Kimmel just goes with an all emoji re-creation of the whole thing.
