Oh my God.
Get ready to laugh…HARD!
Just minutes after Alec Baldwin returned to play Donald Trump, actress Melissa McCarthy surprised the audience at Saturday Night Live tonight to play a pathetic and screaming Sean Spicer, losing his mind on the members in the White House press room. McCarthy played a hysterically accurate version of the real life press secretary, losing his mind against the press through a series of screams and gyrations.
“And also I don’t talk so good!,” McCarthy yells as Spicer after a brief introduction.
Naturally, Spicer quickly grows adversarial in the bit, shouting, “Apologize to me!” Then, quickly, he spouts off, “That apology is NOT accepted!”
“I’m here to swallow gum and take names,” he says.
The whole sketch is a hilarious hodgepodge of Spicer flipping out on the media, complete with jabs at CNN and Glenn Thrush of The New York Times. McCarthy sells the bit throughout the sketch with a hilariously put-on impression and high-commitment physicality.
“Now let me wave something shiny in front of your monkeys,” McCarthy as Spicer screams, shortly before Kate McKinnon appears as Betsy DeVos.
While describing the night of Donald Trump’s announcement of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, the sketch’s version of Spicer intermittently picks up his podium, ramming it straight into the reporters in the front row. “NO ONE WAS SAD, AND THOSE ARE THE FACTS FOREVER!”
“I will put you in the corner with CNN!” she continued.
