We should've known back when Donald Trump was slut-shaming Kristen Stewart over her public break-up with her then-boyfriend Robert Pattinson that there was worse yet to come.

Back in 2012, when the thought of Trump becoming president of the US was as likely as finding out the meaning of life, the politician tweeted:

Well, it seems like Stewart is now getting the last laugh as the 26-year-old has just been announced as the next host of the Saturday Night Live (SNL) show.

Scheduled to make her SNL debut on 4 February, the show follows Aziz Ansari's post Trump inauguration episode – an appearance that saw him compare Trump to Chris Brown ('Make America Great Again' is his 'These hoes ain't loyal') and say it was cool to think the new President was 'probably at home right now watching a brown guy make fun of him'.

Given K-Stew, like Ansari, has no film to promote on the show – as is commonly the case for SNL hosts – it's thought the Twilight star will take to the stage, armed and ready with quips about the new president, who has so famously aired his outrageous thoughts about her in public in the past.

After walking in the Women's March protest in Park City, Utah on Saturday, following the debut of her short film Come Swim at the Sundance Festival, the ELLE cover star opened up on Trump's bizarre obsession with her.

She said: 'He was mad at me a couple years ago!'

'He was really obsessed with me, which was f*cking crazy, like what? I can't even understand it,' she added.

Contrary to many stars her age, Stewart – who was among those protesters during the march holding an 'I Stand With Planned Parenthood' sign – isn't one to pander to her legion followers (in her case 'Twihard' fans), or anyone for that matter.

She doesn't smile for photographs on the red carpet, isn't afraid to wear trainers at film premieres , refuses to define her sexuality and doesn't give a damn what anyone thinks of her. She even recently admitted to Variety to being rather apolitical before the 2016 presidential election, but 'at this point, it's not political. It's f*cking so humanitarian.'

He was really obsessed with me, which was f*cking crazy, like what?

Her appearance on SNL, therefore, means she has the rare vantage point of speaking to a generation of millennial fans – feminist, democrat, anti-Trump or not – who have an interest in who she is and what she has to say.

As Vanity Fair aptly wrote: 'S.N.L. couldn't pick a sharper, more dangerous weapon to aim at Trump than Stewart, a young woman with a huge following that the president once personally attacked.'

Watch out Trump, K-Stew is coming for you.
