Last week, President Donald Trump was reportedly traumatized by Melissa McCarthy’s impression of his
propaganda minister press secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live. You could tell, just by the fact that he didn’t launch into a Twitler tirade about it. The short-fingered silence was deafening!
Politico reported that it was the fact that it was a WOMAN playing Sean Spicer that got Trump riled up, because that made Sean look “weak,” in his opinion. Wow, Trump really knows how to appeal to his female constituents, huh?
SNL, recognizing that it’s incredibly easy to get under our president’s tenguchoushi paper-thin skin, brought Melissa back last night for the cold open. And they also also had Kate McKinnon play our new Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. Another “weak” woman! Melissa as Sean Spicer also revealed that he wears Ivanka Trump-brand accessories and shoes last night. Unemployed of Washington D.C., you might see Sean Spicer in your career center class soon.
Via Washington Post:
McCarthy-as-Spicer appeared in Saturday’s sketch to confront reporters. The character threw gum, cranked a powerful leaf-blower and plowed into the press corps with the podium. When asked about referring to a terrorist attack in Atlanta, Spicer responded, “obviously I meant Orlanta.” Then he ran down a list of terrorist attacks “you never even write about.”
“The Bowling Green massacre — not the Kellyanne one, the real one. The Horror in Six Flags. The Slaughter at Fragglerock. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. Okay?! And then there is the light terrorism this week when Nordstrom’s decided to stop selling Ivanka Trump’s line of clothing and accessories.”
And Melissa’s Sean Spicer wore the hell out of those Ivanka Trump items!

They also took shots at dubious executive orders, what “extreme vetting” of immigrants might look like, and Jeff Sessions’ civil rights record. It was fun for all! Do they sell those White House podium Segways to civilians? I want one.

And as for the rest of ‘Saturday Night Trump Administration,’ Alec Baldwin played Trump taking his travel ban mess to The People’s Court:
Also, Kate McKinnon has taken her Kellyanne Conway from regretful ditz to insane news stalker:
