SNL: Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer Hawks for Ivanka, Explains Vetting

Just one week after her acclaimed turn as White House press secretary Sean Spicer, Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live.

This time around, McCarthy’s Spicer promised to be calm, but it wasn’t long before “Old Spicey” returned, chewing on an oversized piece of cinnamon gum and ripping into the press for failing to report on terrorists attacks, including the Bowling Green Massacre (“not the Kellyanne one, the real one”) and the Slaughter at Fraggle Rock. He then explained the Trump administration’s extreme vetting plans using a Moana doll, and promised that Trump would make sure that his travel ban moves forward, even if it means taking the case to The People’s Court.

Spicer also described Nordstrom’s decision to stop selling Ivanka Trump’s clothing line as “light terrorism,” before showcasing an Ivanka bracelet and high-heeled shoes. He also introduced newly appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, played by Kate McKinnon.

At the close, one journalist asked Spicer if “just mentally, are you OK,” prompting the press secretary to once again ram his podium into numerous members of the press.

What did you think of Melissa McCarthy’s second appearance as Sean Spicer?

    Thank you SNL for bringing Melissa back! Loved it!

  2. Mark says:

    It was funny. I really don’t like that Kate McKinnon is playing so many characters. She played Betsy last week and Jeff Sessions this week. They should give more of teh cast a chance.

    • rowan77 says:

      Trump is unhappy that Spicer was played by a woman – he thinks it makes Spicer look weak, so SNL upped the ante and had McKinnon play Sessions. LOL!

      • Patrick says:

        Her last line about “Two kinds of crime, regular crime and black crime” was the best line in the very good overall skit.

  3. Cobra says:

    And later, Trump did take the judges to “The People’s Court” and offered “to settle.”

    Get ready for some angry Trump tweeting tomorrow.

  4. Bruce Wayne says:

    Wansolutely DISGRACEFUL show tonight. NBC should suspend SNL until further notice and insist Lorne Michaels apologizes to America for what they did tonight.

  5. Haz says:

    Hopefully SNL does not have her back for their next episode. Weather you like Trump or not Alec coming on weekly impersonating Trump is getting old. I have a feeling they are going to keep bringing McCarthy back doing Spicer until it gets old and everyone is sick of seeing it.

  6. MMD says:

    Only watched the clips but just love it. Can’t wait to watch the entire skit.

  7. Raftrap says:

    I wasn’t expecting her back this soon, but she killed it again, just hilarious, I just lost it when she sent Moana to Guantanamo.

  8. Cathy Gart says:

    Melissa McCarthy deserves an Emmy. Time to get Rosie O’Donnell to play Bannon.

  9. Quake says:

    Laughed so hard I almost cried. McCarthy’s “Spicey” just keeps getting funnier and funnier each week. How the rest of the crew kept a straight face when Sean Spicer used a leaf blower on a curious reporter is beyond me. Awesome.

  10. Pat says:

    Oh my gosh, that was absolutely hysterical. SNL is the only thing that is keeping me from going insane, with all that is going on in that White House.

  11. Superwoman says:

    This is going to get old real fast…hope it’s not going to be a weekly appearance. In saying that I never get bored of Alec B’s Trump…the people’s court had me choking. He’s better at being Trump than Trump is…lol

  12. These political skits are great, even if they go off the edge of the cliff with fantasy portrayals of public figures.

    I am a passionate supporter of President Trump and his NEW AMERICAN administration (my words). I am also an avid supporter of free speech. SNL’s hilarious portrayals of members of the White House is absolutely fair game and will do more to increase Trump supporters than to decrease them.

      It’s hilarious that shining a light on the illegal actions of Trump’s administration (public servant instructing citizens to buy Ivanka’s goods), the lies of Trump’s administration (bombing in Atlanta, Bowling Green massacre, etc.), and the racism of Trump’s administration (Jess Sessions is just in a league of his own) will increase Trump’s supporters. And those were all just real examples pointed out in this one sketch! You’re really saying a lot about yourself and your comrades there, hun.

  13. meleliot says:

    Trump supporter here who thought that was absolutely hysterical! I love Melissa McCarthy so much!

  14. Keep up the good work. We have to laugh at this administration or we’ll all wind up in treatment.
