Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer Returns To 'Saturday Night Live,' Hides in Bushes

At the sketch's start, political aide Sarah Huckabee Sanders (played by Aidy Bryant) filled in for Spicer, who not-so-subtly hid in the bushes outside.

But here's the troubling news.

Upon taking a fire extinguisher to one reporter and verbally abusing Bobby Moynihan's portrayal of New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush, McCarthy's Spicer doubled down on his boss's defense for firing FBI Director James Comey. Spicer eventually found the president in a residence he owns in New Jersey, and asked him if he's ever had him lie to the press for him. Before the host even took the stage, they were already skewering Trump for his decision to fire Comey "because of Russia" and his total lack of interest in any sort of positive optics. And that's when we're gifted with a montage of an angst-ridden "Spicer" rolling through the streets of New York City on that motorized podium screaming at the taxis and cars speeding past her. McCarthy rushes Random Mom Joan through the halls, giving her the full SNL experience: peeking into Alec Baldwin's changing room, demanding personal items from pages, meeting the official show llama, giving a forlorn-looking Kyle Mooney a quick pep talk.

McCarthy's "Spicey" character is one of the most beloved now on SNL as McCarthy transforms the Press Secretary's latest gaffes into hilarious parody.

The pair appeared on Saturday night's show, hosted by actress Melissa McCarthy.

However, the Post then offered a correction, stating that Spicer was "among the bushes" not "in the bushes". A semi-retraction followed saying "Spicer huddled with his staff among bushes near television sets on the White House grounds, not 'in the bushes, ' as the story originally stated".

The Cleveland Indians are looking for another series victory tonight in Toronto after a 6-0 win over the Blue Jays Tuesday night. Liriano struggled to start the season with the Pirates past year , and was eventually traded to the Toronto Blue Jays.

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.

"I have a wife, I took vows", McCarthy's Spicer answers.

But "SNL" also showed us how comedy can be nuanced enough to still remind us of who Trump truly is.

Trump then goes in for a kiss, only to have Spice protest that he is married.

Following a week in Washington that pretty much wrote itself, "Saturday Night Live" just had to sit back and let the good times roll. Because he told us so, period! But the host then echoes a voice on the other end of his ear piece, "Oh no I didn't?"
