Melissa McCarthy does best Sean Spicer impression yet


The show devoted an 8-minute sketch to the impression, which ended with McCarthy's Spicer finally meeting up with Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump.

Before "Spicey" made an appearance, Aidy Bryant as deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke at a mock press conference in his place - because, of course, he was hiding in the bushes.

Sanders did this in real life this week while Spicer was fulfilling his U.S. Navy Reserve Duty.

After a few trademark violent "Spicy" outbursts, the press secretary took up the defense of President Donald Trump against accusations that he fired FBI Director James Comey in an effort to obstruct the investigation into Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

But no one had enough to catch leader Busch as the field was setting itself up for a frantic dash to the finish. He still has just one top-10 (a fifth at Texas) and actually lost a spot in the championship standings to 25th.


The Post initially described the scenario as Spicer standing "in the bushes" but later issued a clarification stating he was "among the bushes". It's much anticipated due to her wonderful, hilarious and widely beloved impersonation of American Press Secretary Sean Spicer she started doing on SNL earlier this season. "That's right, Spicey's back - Sarah's out!"

But, for all the usual diversionary tactics deployed to allay the media, the beleaguered press secretary eventually cracked amid ongoing speculation from the reporters that he may lose his job. But far and away Saturday's fan favorite was McCarthy's "Sean Spicer Returns" sketch, during which the show mercilessly skewered the chaos that followed Comey's Tuesday dismissal.

Adding to the anxiety is the fact that McCarthy's lampooning of Spicer is being watched weekly by Spicer's boss, who is known for being prickly about SNL and its political coverage to begin with.

"I know we think this every week, but this week was insane", says Colin Jost, in kicking off Weekend Update. Because he told us so, period! The biggest and "most beautiful" doll, according to Spicer, held a likeness of Trump. He went through the inner dolls - a dog symbolizing Comey, a villain symbolizing Hillary Clinton, Slimer symbolizing Steve Bannon, and an Easter Bunny symbolizing Jess Sessions.

But when Glenn asks if the President is lying to Spicer - "He wouldn't do that - he's my friend!" The two share a passionate embrace before Trump says, "Sean, kiss me". "I need to find Trump", McCarthy yelled.

To find out, McCarthy's dismayed Spicer took his moving lectern to the streets of NY to speak with Trump.

"Yes", Baldwin's Trump responded before going in for long, deep kiss.

"Sure, O.K.", Baldwin's Trump shrugs, knowing that without Republicans willing to stand up to him, he can get away with just about anything.

US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at US$48.98 a barrel, up 13 cents, or 0.3% from their last settlement. An extension to March next year would have to be agreed by all the participants in the deal.


It seems like the opposition to President Trump is being led by Saturday Night Live, which, from the beginning, has set the tone on some of the most absurd moments in presidential history.
