“Pruitt OUT. Who will be the next to go?!” the show said in a tweet, featuring the hashtag #TheCelebrityAppresident.

The tweet is a reference to Trump's former reality TV show, "The Celebrity Apprentice," in which celebrities competed for a job within his organization.

It was on that television program — as well as its predecessor, "The Apprentice" — that Trump developed his signature catchphrase, “You’re fired,” which he said to every contender before sending them home.

The tweet also featured a graphic showing 14 prominent members of the Trump administration who had had been fired or handed in their resignations since he took office, including Anthony ScaramucciAnthony ScaramucciAnthony Scaramucci joining CNBC as a contributor Biden doubles down on normal at White House Pence, other GOP officials expected to skip Trump send-off MORE, Rex TillersonRex Wayne TillersonBiden's is not a leaky ship of state — not yet With salami-slicing and swarming tactics, China's aggression continues Lawmakers to roll out legislation reorganizing State cyber office MORE, James ComeyJames Brien ComeyShowtime developing limited series about Jan. 6 Capitol riot Wray says FBI not systemically racist John Durham's endgame: Don't expect criminal charges MORE and Hope HicksHope HicksUPDATED: McEnany, Fox News talks on pause Trump selects Hicks, Bondi, Grenell and other allies for positions Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis tests positive for coronavirus MORE.
