Melissa McCarthy triumphantly returned to “Saturday Night Live” to reprise her impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer, skewering his gaffe earlier this week involving Hitler and the Holocaust.
McCarthy came out in a bunny suit, a reference to Spicer having played the Easter Bunny at one of the White House’s Easter Egg Roll events during the George W. Bush administration.
Referencing Spicer’s flub earlier this week, in which he claimed Adolf Hitler never used chemical weapons on his own people and later called concentration camps “Holocaust centers, McCarthy said, “Spicey finally screwed up. You got me . . . I clearly meant to say ‘concentration clubs.’ “
“I am sensitive to the fact that they went there on trains, but at least they didn’t have to fly United,” McCarthy added, poking fun at the United Airlines debacle earlier this week in which a passenger was beaten and forcibly removed from an aircraft.
McCarthy went on to further apologize to “all the goys out there” for the timing of the incident so close to Passover, or “what I call Jewish Easter,” she added.
She then made a historical demonstration with Veggie Tales dolls about the story of Passover, stating the Egyptian pharaoh was “worse than Hitler,” before catching herself. “Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on Jews,” McCarthy said.
