Melissa McCarthy returns as Sean Spicer in 'SNL' cold open

Melissa McCarthy took on press secretary Sean Spicer yet again on Saturday Night Live.

Donning a short blonde wig and blue suit, McCarthy appeared as Spicer. "I'm supposed to cut back on the gum chewing so I am now going to limit myself to one slice a day," McCarthy said before pulling out a multiple-feet-long stick of gum and took a huge bite out of it.

McCarthy then had trouble pronouncing the names of foreign countries with whom president Trump was scheduled to meet that week.

When questioned on the controversial travel ban, she angrily responded with a short fuse "Don't f- with me, Glen!" McCarthy yelled.

She then went on to condescendingly explain the "extreme vetting" measures to the crowd of journalists. "Spice is going to explain it so you dumb babies can understand it," said McCarthy. Using her "dollies", i.e. a Barbie who was "okay because she's blonde" and a doll version of Disney princess Moana, McCarthy explained the process. "We're going to read her emails and if we don't like the answers, and we won't, then boom! Guantanamo Bay," she said of the Moana doll.

She went on to name multiple fraudulent "massacres" such as "the slaugther at Fraggle Rock" and "the night they drove Ole Dixie down" and "Nordstrom." Upon naming the department store she showed off one of Ivanka Trump's fashion line's bangles and high heeled shoes.

Kate McKinnon then entered as attorney general Jeff Sessions, sporting a thick Southern accent. "We all know there are two kinds of crime: regular and black," McKinnon said, before being shooed off by McCarthy's Spicer.

When Spicer claimed the murder rates in Chicago are at "80 percent", Spicer responded by using a leaf blower to attack the reporter. She then drove her podium into the press pool.
