Melissa McCarthy Returns To Saturday Night Live To Slay Sean Spicer

"I never dreamed I could play the president", she admitted, "but then Melissa [McCarthy] played [Sean] Spicer and I was like, 'Yo, why can't I play Trump?'" The rest of the sketch showed Leslie trying to nail President Trump's mannerisms before she gets hilariously rejected by Lorne Michaels.

"First of all, I'd just like to announce I'm calm now, and I will remain calm as long as you sons of...", McCarthy said.

"Ok now I'm gonna' open it up for questions and I'm probably gonna' freak if you start asking stupid questions". "This is a new Spicey!" Referring to Spicer's love for chewing gums, McCarthy said, "I'm supposed to cut back on the gum chewing so I am now going to limit myself to one slice a day". "Way too many pieces in there".

Even though it rehashed material from last week, McCarthy's Spicer impersonation is so spot-on that it continues to be a delight.

And then McCarthy blew away the press with her charm. Spicey vowed to take it all the way to the "People's Court".

In Spicer's simulation, Moana's extreme vetting got her sent to Guantanamo - as Spicer explained that the need for extreme vetting is a result of terrorist attacks which the media didn't cover.

United are going in the right direction - Mata
They were on top from the start with the impressive Ander Herrera soon pressing Watford keeper Heurelho Gomes into a save. That miss though didn't prove costly as a minute after that miss, Mata got the opening goal of the game.


"You know what that was?"

"I'm going to have to use my dollies", McCarthy shouted before pulling out a Barbie and explaining she was "OK because she's blonde". She described Nordstrom's decision to drop Ivanka Trump's clothing line as "light terrorism", before showing off an Ivanka Trump bracelet and high-heeled shoes.

Baldwin played the president once again, this time taking his beef with the federal courts over his travel ban to 'The People's Court'.

The department store caught hell from Trump on Twitter this week for dropping his daughter Ivanka's fashion and accessory line, so McCarthy took the opportunity to hawk some of the younger Trump's wares - poking fun at a real Kellyanne Conway moment on Fox News.

"I'm wearing one of her bangles", Spicer says. "She is a great person - always pushing me to do the right thing!" The filmed sketch showed Conway in full-on "Fatal Attraction" mode, with McKinnon breaking into the home of CNN anchor Jake Tapper (played by Beck Bennett) after not booking her for an appearance.

McCarthy's Spicer then gave the floor to McKinnon as Jeff Sessions, before briefly returning to "field" a few more questions from reporters.
