Saturday’s episode opened with a bang, beginning with a parody of a President Trump’s NBC News interview with Lester Holt Thursday. Now you too can have the White House press secretary in – or rather, “among”* – the bushes in your yard.
The Comey debacle is just the latest example of how Spicer handled himself poorly while fielding questions on why Trump fired the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief.
My only hope is that Trump keeps Spicer because I love Melissa McCarthy’s impersonation so much and couldn’t bear to part ways with it!
After emerging from the undergrowth screaming and wielding a fire extinguisher, McCarthy’s Spicer begins the sketch by addressing the ongoing concerns about connections between the Trump administration and Russian Federation. “That’s right, Spicey’s back – Sarah’s out!”
The real-life Trump was reportedly upset earlier this year with “SNL” having a woman play his press secretary.
The testy Spicer then shoves Sanders away from the podium, taking on questions from the press himself.
“Presenting the “Garden Spicer”, Kadonaga said in the post. Yes, Alec Baldwin may be annoying the president every time he appears, but we knew Baldwin would be portraying Donald Trump this season. Because he told us so.
“Sean, kiss me”, says Baldwin’s Trump. The biggest and “most beautiful” doll, according to Spicer, held a likeness of Trump. When Jake, er, Comey is opened, Spicey says “our friend Hillary Clinton” is next, but it’s actually Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. Spicer was not prepared to brief reporters.
He shot down a question from Glen “Michelin Man” Thrush, who asked him to comment on tweets calling the president “unhinged”, insisting, “If he’s insane, he’s insane like a fox. with mental problems”.
“Sean, come on. I would never do that”, Baldwin’s Trump insists. McCarthy became a social media phenom in NY last week when spotted on that magical lectern in midtown.
Stephen Colbert has many quarrels with President Donald Trump, but his latest plea with POTUS is simple: Do not fire Sean Spicer. Period. Then he hired lawyers to agree with him.
“Wait, is this like “The Godfather” where you kiss me and no one ever sees me again”, Spicer asks.
Trump acknowledged it was before the two embraced, ending the sketch.
