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

But the questioning eventually leads him on a journey to the streets of NY, then a golf course in New Jersey, to ask Trump once and for all, what his future at the White House looked like. In fury, McCarthy picks up a pillar and launches it at the reporters, playing on the perception that the real-life Spicer becomes far too agitated when questioned by reporters. But quickly Spicer jumped from the bushes just outside the press room to reclaim his spot, pushing Sanders aside.

"Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?" an exhausted Spicer asked Trump, played by Alec Baldwin.

Sensing that Huckabee Sanders was targeting his job, McCarthy's "Spicey" reappeared mid-press conference to reassume his prop-filled podium and spew rancor at reporters. "That's right, Spicey's back - Sarah's out!"

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. "He's my friend", a pained Spicer answers. So, with Melissa as this week's host, we knew Saturday Night Live would be good - and it did not disappoint. Because he told us so.

Glen Thrush (Bobby Moynihan), a favorite target of McCarthy's Spicer, asked if Trump was "unhinged".

The pair appeared in the same spoof for the first time over the weekend - and with such a high-profile match-up came one the most outrageous storylines yet. 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. The Comey debacle is just the latest example of how Spicer handled himself poorly while fielding questions on why Trump fired the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief.

Bryant announced "Sanders" was filling in for "Spicer", but it's quickly pointed out that McCarthy is watching from the bushes.

Trump later added: "I've got the Republicans in the palm of my hand" - and out walks Paul Ryan, played by Mikey Dee. Unfortunately, Trump was at "a golf course in New Jersey".

Not because they're particular fans of Spicer himself, but because Melissa McCarthy's Saturday Night Live impersonation of the press secretary is the one thing keeping them going in these dark and troubled times.

"Yes", Baldwin's Trump responds before locking lips. Spicer asks before Trump embraces him.

The sketch show also interpreted Trump's surreal back-and-forth with NBC anchor Lester Holt on Thursday, concluding that if Comey's firing won't tank the White House - nothing will. "I'm telling you exactly what President Trump told me".
