Baldwin's Trump, McCarthy's Spicer Have Very Emotional Reunion on SNL

Adjust Comment Print

And of all the people in the administration who have been comedy gold, Sean Spicer tops the list, given Melissa McCarthy's hilarious impression of the White House press secretary on "Saturday Night Live".

After asking for Holt's undying loyalty, Baldwin's Trump plainly admits he fired Comey over his investigation into possible collusion between the administration and Russian Federation.

McCarthy did not leave fans in suspense heading into this week's episode of SNL. McCarthy's Spicer then gave the reporters a demonstration of how Mr. Trump made decisions using a matryoshka doll that involved Hillary Clinton, Vladimir Putin, Steve Bannon and Jeff Sessions, but soon after, reporters asked him if he was anxious about getting fired. "He's trying to blend in with his surroundings", she said. In all likelihood, this was the last time we will see McCarthy's Spicer.

But here's the troubling news.

Later, McCarthy finally appeared in her signature "SNL" role - Sean Spicer.

Spicer is seen rolling through New York in search for Trump to the sound of Simon and Garfunkel's The Only Living Boy In New York.

Is the Deputy White House Press Secretary taking over?

McCarthy's Spicer, with a scared look on his face, is crouching in shrubbery - a reference to a Washington Post story about the fallout after FBI Director James B. Comey's firing. In the sketch, Che's Holt is shocked when Baldwin-as-Trump admits to firing Comey because of the Russian Federation probe.

Spicer also said "I like" the contentious daily press briefings.

After the typical back and forth exchange between Spicer and reporters, one asks the press secretary to "be straight with us for once - what's really going on?" "I'm going to NY". "I'm telling you exactly what President Trump told me". Had Trump been feeding him lies?

McCarthy wished the audience and viewers a happy Mother's Day before putting on her honorary five-timers robe and giving Martin and Baldwin hugs. So it was time for SNL's Spicer to have some sort of personal reckoning. The freshest part of Alec Baldwin's Trump cold open was seeing Michael Che as Lester Holt.

But the sketch really kicked into gear when the podium motored to NY, after "Spicer" goes in search of his boss in response to a reporter suggesting maybe Trump ied to him about Russian.

Then a reporter asked, "Were you surprised Trump fired Comey before he fired you?"

"Only since you started working here", Trump replied.

Pirro pressed him on the issue, saying at one point, "You can't put an end to that".

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.
