Melissa McCarthy adds spice (and Spicer) as host of 'SNL'

After deflecting more questions about the possibility of being replaced, McCarthy's Spicer drives her podium out of the White House press room all the way to New York City, where Simon & Garfunkel's "The Only Living Boy in New York" plays as he angrily sobs and promises to "talk better". Was Spicer's job really in jeopardy?

Then asked "Where you surprised Trump fired James Comey instead of you" McCarthy as Spicer ripped a beam off the wall and threw into the press corps.

The Post initially described the scenario as Spicer standing "in the bushes" but later issued a clarification stating he was "among the bushes".

"I can't, I have a wife".

An impatient Spicey ousts Bryant's Sanders at the podium to reluctantly take questions, mostly batting down inquiries about Russian collusion.

"Spicey's back, Sarah's out!"

"Yes, so people are saying that based on President Trump's tweets that he is unhinged", asked a reporter. Yikes. When he gets to a matryoshka doll with Vladimir Putin on it, McCarthy's Spicer tries to hide it.

"Trump is innocent", she insisted.

It's a move that had Trump and Spicer soon trending on Twitter, with folks writing about how much the SNL kiss might provoke the "Real Donald Trump" on Twitter. The biggest and "most beautiful" doll, according to Spicer, held a likeness of Trump. "So what actually happened is Trump conferred with his good, good friend Steve Bannon (Slimer from Ghostbusters) and the decision to fire Comey was even confirmed by Trump's tiniest little buddy Jeff Sessions (Pikachu)". Spicer was not prepared to brief reporters.

The cold open incorporated numerous headlines from another eventful week for the Trump administration, from the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to the revelation that the President likes two scoops of ice cream for dessert.

All while Melissa McCarthy could be seen dressed as Spicer, watching the proceedings from some bushes. "I need to find Trump!"

As for Alec Baldwin's Trump, his pained facial expressions were put through the wringer. Period. Then he hired lawyers to agree with him.

"It this like 'The Godfather, ' where you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?"

Melissa McCarthy and Alec Baldwin have returned to Saturday Night Live, and it might be our favourite sketch yet.

"Saturday Night Live" turned up the heat in its season-long series of jabs at President Donald Trump and his administration. In real life, the president's staff had indicated it was not because of the current investigation involving Russian Federation but Trump contradicted those statements in an NBC interview.
