Melissa McCarthy channels Sean Spicer on 'SNL'


Melissa McCarthy gave Alec Baldwin a run for his money on this week's Saturday Night Live when she played White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

Just like the actual Spicer, McCarthy's character was combative with the press and over inflated "facts" about President Trump.

"Before we begin, I need you to know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start," McCarthy's Spicer said. "When I say 'rocky start,' I mean it in the sense of the movie Rocky because I came out here to punch you. Now I'd like to begin today by apologizing on behalf of you to me for how you have treated me these last two weeks, and that apology is not accepted! Because I'm not here to be your buddy. I'm here to swallow gum and I'm here to take names."

In the same episode, Baldwin returned as Trump and once again skewed the president for multiple real world issues that have been dogging him all week.
