When John Mulaney hosted Saturday Night Live on February 29, he joked about Julius Caesar and Donald Trump.
He said, “It is a leap year, as I said. Leap year began in the year 45 B.C. under Julius Caesar; this is true. He started the leap year in order to correct the calendar, and we still do it to this day. Another thing that happened under Julius Caesar was, he was such a powerful maniac that all the senators grab knives, and they stabbed him to death. That’d be an interesting thing if we brought that back now.”

And on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, he said that joke led to him being investigated by the secret service. He tells the story and said, “I guess they opened a file on me because of the joke. And I have to say, am I stoked there’s a file open on me? Absolutely. Did I enjoy it in the moment? Not so much.”
