Melissa McCarthy Nailed Sean Spicer On SNL
Actress Melissa McCarthy who stole the show on Saturday Night Live with an ill-fitting suit to play Sean Spicer, Trump’s aggressive press secretary whose briefings have been marked by their combative tone with reporters.
"Before we begin, I know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start," McCarthy's Spicer said to open the skit. "When I say ‘rocky start’, I mean it in the sense of Rocky the movie because I came out here to punch you."
Shd mocked Spicer’s recent problems with the truth, saying that when the news was announced that Trump would nominate Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, “The crowd greeted him with a standing ovation, which lasted a full 15 minutes. And you can check the tape on that. Everyone was smiling. Everyone was happy.”
“Those are the facts forever,” McCarthy’s Spicer continued.
After accidentally reading her own email password at the podium (Spicer appeared to tweet out a password last week), McCarthy fought with a New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush (played by cast member Bobby Moynihan) over the use of the term “ban” to describe Trump’s controversial immigration order that prohibited travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
It was a good weekend for McCarthy as she starred in a series of KIA Commercials during Sunday's Sunday Bowl.
