'Spicy's back': Melissa McCarthy returns as Sean Spicer and SNL guest host

The White House press secretary was dogged earlier in the week by questions about former national security adviser Michael Flynn, then was forced to hide in or behind the bushes as reporters sought answers about the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

That wasn't the only sketch for Baldwin's Trump.

As for Comey's replacement, Baldwin's Trump vowed that it will be someone "so bonkers you're going to wish like hell it was Judge Judy". Baldwin's Trump insisted that it had less to do with the economy and more about sex with the First Lady.

Prior to this week, the nationwide live simulcast hadn't done much to pop ratings, but McCarthy, a fixture this season thanks to her impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer, has cemented herself as one of the show's biggest recurring personalities.

When asked if Trump would fire him, McCarthy's Spicer said, "He wouldn't do that".

'We Finally Agree': Trump Retweets Rosie O'Donnell on Comey Firing
Instead, they've ramped up their calls for a special prosecutor to take over the Trump-Russia case - a decision that lies exclusively in the hands of Rosenstein.

Let's just say things got a bit awkward. With the actual Spicer rumored to be on the way out the door despite his willingness to flat-out deny reality on a daily basis, McCarthy's Spicey can only succumb to the fate of all those who'll eventually learn what serving Donald Trump really entails. Laughing at the real-life absurdities beats crying. The silliness of McCarthy-as-Spicer fades, as the live sketch transitions into a Simon and Garfunkel-scored pre-taped film.

President Trump would think that by placing a young woman on the other side of the toughest newsroom in the free world, the situation for him would become easier. But I get two scoops, OK? Spicer's plaintive cries into the NY sky like "I promise I'll talk better!" actually evoke something akin to pathos. Her Spicer responded by ripping a pillar from the wall and throwing it at the reporter, exclaiming, "I honestly hope to God that killed her!"

He rolls through Manhattan traffic via motorized podium, promising to "talk better". She eventually finds Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, at a New Jersey golf course. "I'm famous, it's okay".

"Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?"

McCarthy's Spicer soon took over the briefing, and when the NY Times' Glenn Thrush (Bobby Moynihan) asked him whether Trump was "unhinged", McCarthy spat out, "Oh my God, Glenn, do I come to your job and slap the seven or eight hot dogs out of your mouth?"
