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

17 May 2017

Trump, on the sacking of now former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey: "I thought, he's investigating Russian Federation, I don't like that, I should fire him".

Michael Che played played Lester Holt, who was interviewing Baldwin as Mr. Trump.

"What if he's lying to you?" one journalist asks.

Most of the press corps' questions focused on the big news of the week: Comey and the FBI investigation into ties between Russian Federation and Trump campaign associates.

Will you miss him, or did they push the bit too far?

"Wait, so did I get him? Nothing matters? Absolutely nothing matters anymore?"

Trump signs religious liberty order
Trump promised evangelical voters during the presidential campaign that he would "totally destroy" the law. However, there are also a number of religious groups who have publicly supported Trump and his new order.

Enter Mikey Day's Paul Ryan, delivering ice cream, and a defiant Trump making a Nixon-esque two-handed Victory salute - for two scoops. The scene ends with McCarthy's Spicer yelling, "I had a good run!"

"I was so nervous that first time", she said.

The Spicer sketch began with cast member Aidy Bryant playing Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House aide who subbed for Spicer for a few days last week.

"I've got a tracking number right here if you want to check it out", Spicey continued. That's why I put him out. "They're saying that you're going to replace me with Sarah", Spicer said.

Whether Trump fires Spicer or not, one thing is clear: the press secretary gave McCarthy one of her most memorable roles.

"In a lot of ways, Melissa is the closest thing just in terms of sheer power and comedy physicality that we have to Chris Farley, and I knew Lorne felt the same way", Kenward said. "No one use it", McCarthy declared. You can't take money out of it.

'Dr Phil' to air interview with Aaron Hernandez's fiancee
Jenkins-Hernandez told McGraw there was no indication Hernandez was suicidal. He was still serving a life sentence for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd .

"If he's insane, he's insane like a fox with mental problems", McCarthy-as-Spicer told a reporter who asked whether Trump was "unhinged". Singing along with the tune "I Feel Pretty", McCarthy is pictured undergoing her makeup transformation to take on the parodied persona of the infamous press secretary. For this season, only Alec Baldwin's turn as host on February 11 had more viewers (McCarthy also played Spicer on that show, too).

McCarthy came back in another skit with Kate McKinnon.

All of which made the ruthlessness with which she later attacked Spicer all the more satisfying.

Facing questions over Trump's mental state amid a series of tweet storms, McCarthy's Spicer then claimed that "If he's insane, he's insane like a fox with mental problems".

The actress closed out the night with a surprise appearance by Steve Martin, donning a velvet robe, onstage. The entire sketch was basically McCarthy, as "stay-at-home mother of none" Marcy, getting hit in the face with pies and other foods. In a pathos-inducing sequence, Spicer scours the streets of New York City on a motorized podium searching for his pal.
