The commercial, called "Brotherhood of Man," aired during the Super Bowl and combined characters from popular series such as The Office, 30 Rock, Saturday Night Live and more. The ad also featured Trump's reality series competition The Apprentice.

“I directed Trumpy,” Waititi said on the "SmartLess" podcast. “There was a piece of paper with a list of demands. The height of the camera had to be a certain height to make him look a little thinner.”

“I think it had whatever the Pantone for orange was that he had to appear as on screen," he joked.

Barr, who used to work alongside Trump, remarked how he was so selfish despite having a team helping him at every second.

“If he was in the White House again, he will always put his own interests and gratifying his own ego ahead of everything else, including the country’s interests,” Barr said. “There’s no question about it. This is a perfect example of that.”

“He’s a very petty individual who will always put his interests ahead of the country’s, his personal gratification of his ego, but our country can’t be a therapy session for a troubled man like this,” he added.

Chris Christie and Bill Barr both spoke out about Donald Trump's self-esteem.

Chris Christie, who used to be friends with Trump, 77, also noted how skipping the debates might have hurt his self-esteem.
