Melissa McCarthy Returns to SNL as Sean Spicer & It’s Better than Ever

Melissa McCarthy Returns to SNL as Sean Spicer & It’s Better than Ever

She’s baaack! Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live over the weekend as–you guessed it–Sean Spicer.

McCarthy first appeared as the United States press secretary last year, and her impersonation was an instant hit. Obviously, it was necessary for her to reprise that character. Political jokes are far from being over.

The latest thing Sean Spicer did that was worthy of ridicule was his commentary on Hitler. According to him, Hitler never used chemical weapons on his own people. Ummm…what?

Melissa McCarthy’s impersonation of Spicer called him out on this. Airing as a message from the White House Easter Bunny (Sean Spicer in disguise), the skit started out with some festive spirit. McCarthy jumps right into the thick of things after that. The highlight comes when she says, “It would be really great if the nitpickers could try to see the big picture, and didn’t solely focus on every little slur and lie I say.”
