Like clockwork, this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” featured Alec Baldwin once again mercilessly ridiculing President Trump during the cold open.
Speaking of merciless…
Melissa McCarthy got in on the act, as well, portraying White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in a separate skit conducting a contentious briefing with the media.
McCarthy’s “Spicer” was off the rails from the beginning, as she began screaming at reporters while inhaling a package of his gum of choice, Cinnamon Orbit, “I’m here to swallow gum and take names!”
At one point, “Spicer” threatens to put a reporter “in the corner with CNN,” whose correspondent, Jim Acosta, is shown locked in a cage, wearing a diaper, and insisting that he’s innocent.
Comedy gold, right?
It got “better” when Spicer screamed at one reporter, “let me put something shiny in front of you monkeys!”
No doubt Spicer added Melissa McCarthy to the “mean-spirited” list last night.
