"Spicy's back!" 'SNL' has McCarthy's Spicer meet with Baldwin's Trump

When we heard that Melissa McCarthy would be hosting one of the last Saturday Night Live episodes of the season, we knew two things: it would involve her impression of Sean Spicer, and it would be really, really amusing. However, the reporters seemed to have hit a nerve, and Spicey took off, riding his podium through the streets of New York City in search of an explanation. You get the idea.

And while SNL writers anxious that it would be too soon to bring her back the following week, there was more to tackle: A new controversy erupted over the White House response to Nordstrom dropping Ivanka Trump apparel line. McCarthy asked, to which Reynolds deadpanned, "You invited us". That's when our friends from cartoons and video games show up. 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!" Well, guess who shows up at the end.

"I can't, I have a wife". Spicer finds Trump (played by Alec Baldwin) and pleads for his job.

In honor of this pre-Mother's Day episode, host/mom McCarthy chose the coolest looking mama in the audience to take on a very special backstage tour.

After reporters ask SNL's Sanders where Spicer is, he's shown peering into the window - from behind a bush, of course.

Later in the briefing a reporter asked if Spicer was surprised that he was sacked before Comey was.

Pippa Middleton wedding to James Matthews: Royals to wear two outfits?
A week from now Duchess Kate's sister will be walking down the aisle and her gown will undoubtedly turn heads all over the world. Rumour has it that Pippa, the youngster sister of Kate , the Duchess of Cambridge, wants guests to have two outfits .

"OK, let me just put this whole Russian Federation thing to bed once and for all", he trumpets.

Mr Trump then begins to flirtatiously tickle Mr Spicer, before commanding the other man to kiss him.

"That's right - Spicey is back, Sarah is out", shouts McCarthy's Spicer.

It seems like the opposition to President Trump is being led by Saturday Night Live, which, from the beginning, has set the tone on some of the most absurd moments in presidential history.

That wasn't the only sketch for Baldwin's Trump. "Because he TOLD us so!" When Trump seems to implicate himself, an overjoyed Holt checks with his producers: "Did I get him?".

Overall, I would trade all the jokes that Trump and his team have supplied to comedians for a different presidential administration. And for now, McCarthy's "Spicey" may be the best antidote to Trump-induced stress.
