McCarthy spikes Spicer on SNL, wild week at the White House

Share

After emerging from the bushes, Spicer was banished the next day to serve his Navy duty, leaving deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as the face of the White House clean-up job. You may have missed it if you didn't watch it closely, but SNL also poked fun at Trump's close ties to Putin with a doll of the shirtless Russian president as well.

It is McCarthy's fourth appearance on the show, having most recently appeared as Sean Spicer in a bunny costume around Easter time.

The Spicer sketch started off with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, played by "Saturday Night Live" cast member Aidy Bryant, filling in for the White House press secretary.

Two sketches on Saturday mixed political zingers with risque remarks, questions about Trump's mental stability and a moment that might make its two subjects uncomfortable.

But during tonight's episode, we finally got some context for the videos.

"Everybody's convinced: They say there is no collusion", Trump said.

After continued interrogation on Russian Federation and Comey, an exasperated Spicer told the press corp., "I am being straight with you".

Asked about Trump's mental fitness, McCarthy's combative Spicer tells the press "If he's insane, he's insane like a fox with mental problems". McCarthy's angry Spicer announces after storming into the room following the suggestion that Sanders simply replace him. He went through the inner dolls - a dog symbolizing Comey, a villain symbolizing Hillary Clinton, Slimer symbolizing Steve Bannon, and an Easter Bunny symbolizing Jess Sessions. McCarthy reprised her role spoofing the White House press briefings, where she "put this whole Russian thing to bed once and for all".

McCarthy's character becomes angered and upset, and calls off the conference to travel to Trump Tower in New York City on his infamous podium. Spicer asked Trump after tracking him down.

He rolls through Manhattan traffic via motorized podium, promising to "talk better".

"I gotta find Trump", Spicer says. "I'm famous, it's OK".

"Is this like "The Godfather" when you kiss me an no one sees me again?"
