Melissa McCarthy Returns as Sean Spicer to SNL

That's how Melissa McCarthy brought back her beloved impression of Press Secretary Sean Spicer to NBC's "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday night. Before the host even took the stage, they were already skewering Trump for his decision to fire Comey "because of Russia" and his total lack of interest in any sort of positive optics. "Only since you started working here", Trump answered. After some of his classic attempts to answer questions (one involving Russian nesting dolls) he drives his podium to NY to find President Trump and confront him about his possible firing.

Amid the Nixonian turmoil of Trump's America, the restive majority has awaited Spicey's return to SNL, and McCarthy doesn't disappoint. There was this weird, great delay, and first people figure out it's Spicer and then they figure out it's me.

"I know we think this every week, but this week was insane", says Colin Jost, in kicking off Weekend Update.

But Trump's White House has been taking a beating as it fails to coordinate and get out a coherent message. The faux president then told his faux press secretary to kiss him. McCarthy's angry Spicer announces after storming into the room following the suggestion that Sanders simply replace him. "And then I get off, and I have all of these texts, like 'Oh, my God, are you looking at what's happening?" After insisting that "his friend", would never fire him, Spicer begins to worry.


And SNL delivered what is easily the show's best Sean Spicer sketch yet in an episode from this past weekend hosted by Melissa McCarthy. "I'm famous, it's OK".

"Yes", Baldwin's Trump responded before going in for long, deep kiss. In fact the possibility Spicer may soon be hearing the words "You're Fired!" from Trump was a big part of "SNL's" sketch last night.

"Nothing's going to stop me because I've got the Republicans in the palm of my hand", Baldwin's Trump says before bringing out House speaker Paul Ryan (played by cast member Mikey Day), who offered him two scoops of ice cream, a play on a freaky fact revealed while dining with reporters from Time magazine earlier this week.

"I guess the L.A Times said that somebody had seen one alongside the highway down by Santa Monica, and some other guy went over in Washington D.C. and got his picture outside the Watergate hotel", Kadonaga told The Canadian Press Sunday night.
