|Melissa McCarthy as "Sean Spicer" and Alec Baldwin as "Donald Trump"|
With Melissa McCarthy returning to Saturday Night Live for her 5th appearance as host, fans immediately hoped for a reprisal of her wild and wacky version of White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer.
Not only did SNL deliver more "Spicey" Spicer, but we got a double-team with Alec Baldwin's "President Trump."
In the skit, an embattled "Spicer" returns to the press podium at the White House to explain that Trump had nothing to do with Russian interference during the 2016 election.
“Let me just put this whole Russian thing to bed once and for all: Trump is innocent. How do we know? Because he told us so. Period. Then he hired lawyers to agree with him. And they’re gonna prove it with a certified letter which you know is the truth because it costs an extra $2 to have it certified.”
But "Spicey" is quickly informed by White House press correspondents that Trump is prepping to replace him with press side-kick Sarah Huckabee.
Immediately hitting the road (via his podium), the press secretary sets out to find his boss and directly ask about the possible firing.
But Baldwin's Trump demures, “Sean, come on, I would never do that. She doesn’t have your special spice—salt and pepper, a little bit of sugar." Then, switching gears, Trump pleads, “Sean, kiss me.”
“No, I’m married,” Spicer argues. “I can’t, I have a wife, I took vows!”
“I’m famous, it’s okay,” Trump says.
I'm amazed the Trumpster hasn't issued one of his Twitter rants yet.
