See Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer Try to Save His Job on 'SNL'

See Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer Try to Save His Job on 'SNL'

The sketch began with cast member Aidy Bryant as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, opening a press briefing. One of Spicer's assistants is said to have emerged and communicated to the press that the press secretary would answer questions as long as cameras and lights were off.

In this photo provided by NBC, Melissa McCarthy, right, as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, performs during "Spicer Returns" on the television show "Saturday Night Live", Saturday, May 13, 2017, in NY. "Sarah's out!" The topic inevitably turns to Comey's firing.

The sketch next addressed questions over the firing of Comey, amid an ongoing investigation between Trump's links suspected Russian attempts to influence the U.S. election. "How do we know?" He told us so.There's no Russian Federation thing. Period! Then he hired lawyers to agree with him. "And they're going to prove it with a certified letter, which you know is the truth because it cost an extra $2 to have it certified".

McCarthy asks Baldwin, who is playing the president in the sketch. A reporter points to a window and says, "I'm pretty sure I can see him hiding in those bushes".

Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live as host this weekend for the fifth time - and she also reprised her fan-favorite impersonation of White House press secretary Sean Spicer to poke fun at the recent firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and Spicer's alleged hiding behind a bush during the ensuing press conference.




Spicer insisted "there is no Russian thing. The only Russian Federation things are my little dollies".

At the close of the show, Steve Martin appeared to surprise McCarthy and welcome her into the "5-Timers Club". Here are SNL's best Trump and Spicer moments from this week's show.

Later in the briefing a reporter asked if Spicer was surprised that he was sacked before Comey was. "He wouldn't do that, he's my friend!"

"Yes", Baldwin reply's before grabbing McCarthy in a passionate kiss.

Reporters then asked if Sanders could be the press secretary every day instead of Spicer, because of his tantrums. "I'm telling you exactly what President Trump told me", the press secretary said. McCarthy ends the sketch with the line, "I had a good run!" I can't go back to the Navy. And that's when McCarthy's Spicey once again explains a major Trump presidency event with dolls.
