Watch Melissa McCarthy savage Sean Spicer again on SNL


Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live over the weekend to portray White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Like the previous Spicer sketch, McCarthy went to town on that prevaricating jabroni, and it just got more and more absurd. Alec Baldwin was the host for the bajillionth time.

If reports are true, Donald Trump was rattled by McCarthy’s caricature, so much so that’ it’s put Spicer’s job in jeopardy. Trump was especially angry that Spicer was played by a woman. On a related note, the Dominican newspaper El Nacional ran an image of Baldwin as Trump on SNL rather than an image of the actual president.

And that was Kate McKinnon playing Attorney General Jeff Sesisons, a man who was considered too racist in the 1980s to serve as a federal judge. There’s lots of talk online about Rosie O’Donnell playing chief White House strategist and general goon Steve Bannon in the future, but SNL has not committed to that.

It hasn’t even been a month.

Smoke em if you got em. And can I have one?
