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

Spicer's outside of the briefing room doing recon from the bushes - a real thing for which he will be forever known - until he busts back in and takes over the session. Her Spicer responded by ripping a pillar from the wall and throwing it at the reporter, exclaiming, "I honestly hope to God that killed her!"

We can't wait for Trump to tweet about this sketch, that's for certain.

Be proactive - Use the "Flag as Inappropriate" link at the upper right corner of each comment to let us know of abusive posts. He told us so.There's no Russian Federation thing. "Period. Then he hired lawyers to agree with him". And it's not just because McCarthy was hosting, and it's not just because everyone wanted to see McCarthy's Spicer again (which was a given, even besides the point just about everybody in NY saw her riding around down on her motorized podium) - it was that and the fact that this past week was one of the longest registered in human existence.

"Is this like "The Godfather" when you kiss me an no one sees me again?"

"Saturday Night Live" has previously used kisses between Trump and his associates as a means of poking fun at the president.

Trump asks Holt for his undying loyalty, and then reminds everyone that he won the election "fair and square".

The university said in a statement that Kim was carrying out agricultural development work with the school's agricultural farm. A group of North Korean officials is meeting with former US officials in Oslo for a round of informal talks known as Track 1.5.

Finally, Thrush asked the most important question regarding Spicer's credibility: "What if Trump is lying to you?".

The show opened with Baldwin's Trump being interviewed by NBC News' Lester Holt - played by cast member Michael Che. A reporter points to a window and says, "I'm pretty sure I can see him hiding in those bushes".

This led to multiple combative exchanges, and Spicer ended up throwing one of the press room's columns at reporters when he was asked if he was surprised that he kept his his job longer than Comey did.

On Saturday night, it all came to a climax with McCarthy hosting and Baldwin reprising his Trump role.

The long-running NBC sketch series has thrived in the ratings thanks in large part to regular appearances by McCarthy as Spicer and Baldwin as President Donald Trump, with this season up 25% in the demo and 31% in total viewers compared to the same point previous year.

Spicer asks if he's being fired and replaced by his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
