Melissa McCarthy adds spice (and Spicer) as host of 'SNL'

15 May 2017

"I'm famous, it's OK", Baldwin said, in a reference to the leaked 2005 video where Trump said he could get away with grabbing women because he's famous.

Baldwin's Trump also appeared in the show's cold open, which mocked the president's interview earlier this week with NBC News host Lester Holt, played by cast member Michael Che.

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".

Game Show - Melissa McCarthy may be the best physical comic to take to Saturday Night Live since Chris Farley (though Molly Shannon comes close too).

Then things got even more physical with the latest White House press briefing spoof. But after being spotted eavesdropping from the bushes outside the press room, the notoriously combative Spicer crashed the briefing, pushing Sanders aside.

"We now await the utter meltdown of the commander in chief on Twitter over that Spicey-SNL Trump kiss". Because he told us so, period!

"Have you ever told me to say things that are untrue?" an out of breath Spicer asks Trump.

However, Son admitted that the ball is in T-Mobile's park on whether or not it would be receptive to the idea of a merger. Son also said T-Mobile is one of the best candidates for a potential deal, but added that there are other possibilities.

But was this true? There's a fear that comedy will minimize the grave risks Trump poses to America - at least as seen by those who oppose him.

The long-running NBC sketch series has thrived in the ratings thanks in large part to regular appearances by McCarthy as Spicer and Baldwin as President Donald Trump, with this season up 25% in the demo and 31% in total viewers compared to the same point past year.

"I'm pretty sure I can see him hiding in those bushes?" one confused reporter said, as Spicer was peering through the windows into the press conference.

Another journalist asks, "If he's your friend, why does he make you come out and humiliate yourself every day?" to which Spicer responds, "He doesn't make me". McCarthy's Spicer asked Baldwin's Trump, who replied, "Only since you started working here".

The question first made McCarthy's Spicer go ballistic, ripping a column down and throwing it at the press corps, but then it and other questions about whether Trump was lying to the faux press secretary made Spicer rethink everything.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.

Ah, the "Spicey" we all know and love.
