How times have changed.

Back in 2011, “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane subjected then reality TV personality Donald Trump to one of Comedy Central’s most memorable roasts.

Virtually no topics were out of bounds, as roast-master MacFarlane led celebrities in poking fun at the now president-elect over his multiple wives, the inheritance he received from his father and his mispronunciation of the word “huge.”

Trump “took his lumps like a champ that night,” MacFarlane recalled Thursday on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.” 

“I remember, he would nod and go ‘fair enough,’” said MacFarlane, whose show has repeatedly mocked Trump.

But now, the president-elect is known for fighting back when criticized, MacFarlane acknowledged.

“Now it’s not the same, now it’s different,” MacFarlane said. Trump’s skin had now “gotten a little thinner,” he said.

Trump could be more sensitive after standing in front of crowds who’d deified him over the past 18 months, MacFarlane suggested. “It’s gonna turn anybody into a madman,” he added.
