Donald Trump Jr. posted a tweet Monday reacting sportingly to last weekend's "Saturday Night Live" Weekend Update that featured him (played by Mikey Day) and his brother Eric Trump (played by Alex Moffat), who was seen eating from a bag of Cheerios during the segment, mocking the brothers for their childlike behavior.
The 39-year-old businessman posted a photo of himself where he was seen munching on Eric Trump's bag of Cheerios, which was intended to mock SNL's sketch that teased the two Trump brothers' relationship.
During the four-minute sketch, Donald Trump Jr. was the slick, smart brother while Eric Trump was essentially portrayed as a baby, needing a juice box and Cheerios to snack on during their interview.
As the two brothers were trying to answer anchor Colin Jost's questions, Eric Trump started whining for food and interrupted the conversation. Donald Trump Jr. was prompt enough to take out a bag of dry cereals and said, "Here, I've got some Cheerios for you, buddy." Eric Trump smashed the cereal on to his face because he could not open the bag.
"It’s great to hear how your businesses are doing. But you still haven’t answered the question about your father’s businesses," anchor Colin Jost said.
"The only people making decisions about my father’s businesses are Eric and myself," Donald Trump Jr. replied.
"And dad," Eric added.
"No bud. Dad doesn’t tell us what to do anymore, remember?" Donald Trump Jr. responded.
"Yes he does," Eric replied.

Donald Trump Jr.'s sporting and funny response to the sketch came in complete opposition to his father's reactions, who has repeatedly shunned the late night comedy show online.
"@NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC," President Donald Trump tweeted in January after SNL's comedy show made fun of his press conference.
He also reportedly found Melissa McCarthy's portrayal of Press Secretary Sean Spicer faulty because she's a woman.
