NBC’s Saturday Night Live is known for poking fun at political figures. Actress Melissa McCarthy made a surprise guest appearance on Saturday night’s episode to do a comical impersonation of White House press secretary Sean Spicer, reports Rolling Stone.
From Rolling Stone:
In the eight-minute sketch, a nearly unrecognizable McCarthy perfectly captured the frosty, often acrimonious relationship between Spicer and the press, the secretary’s brash and confrontational manner, his odd phrasing and the circuitousness of his answers to direct questions.
“I know that the press and myself have gotten off to a rocky start, and when I say ‘rocky start,’ I mean it in the sense of Rocky the movie because I came out here to punch you,” “Spicer” yelled.
“I’d like to begin today by apologizing on behalf of you to me for how you have treated me these last two weeks, and that apology is not accepted!”
During the sketch, McCarthy tackled President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court announcement, the travel ban controversy, and Steve Bannon.
