'SNL' shares outtakes from Melissa McCarthy cruising through the NY streets

'SNL' shares outtakes from Melissa McCarthy cruising through the NY streets

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.

Whatever Sean Spicer's fate at the White House, McCarthy's place on SNL's roster of political heavyweights is practically assured. It took all of about 20 seconds, though, before "Spicey's back, Sarah's out". "Boo-ya!:Let's do this!"

Spicer's boss, U.S. President Donald Trump, has been a guest host on "Saturday Night Live" twice, in 2004 and 2015.

McCarthy-Spicer ends up having a crisis of conscience after the press corps gets him thinking about why President Trump forces him to defend huge levels of scrutiny every day.

The sketch next addressed questions over the firing of Comey, amid an ongoing investigation between Trump's links suspected Russian attempts to influence the U.S. election. Because he told us so. The press secretary whips out a Matryoshka doll set to explain why Comey had to go. "I need to find Trump", McCarthy yelled.

But you don't want to read this - you want to watch.

"What if he's lying to you", asked a reporter during the latest episode. Melissa McCarthy has reprised her role as Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live, and things have gotten really bloody weird.

In a reference to Trump's tweet hinting he may have taped a meeting with Comey, Baldwin's Trump refers to himself as a "serial tapist". Inside Putin ("Oops", McCarthy says, swiftly tossing that doll aside), follows "Steve Bannon", or Slimer from Ghostbusters.

"Yes", Baldwin's Trump responded before going in for long, deep kiss.

And upon being informed of reports that Trump might fire him, Spicer embarks on his podium to NY and then New Jersey, where he finds Trump at his golf course.

"Is this like in Godfather when you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?"

"I fired him because of Russian Federation". Another questioned Spicer's trust in Trump.
