Melissa McCarthy returned to "Saturday Night Live" this week to reprise her popular role as White House Press Secretary and gum-chewer supreme Sean Spicer. "I'm supposed to cut back on the gum chewing so I am now going to limit myself to one slice a day", McCarthy said before pulling out a multiple-feet-long stick of gum and took a huge bite out of it.
When "Thrush" asks about the Trump's administration's response to a federal court's striking down its travel ban, an aggravated Spicer looks up at the sky and says: 'You're testing me, big guy'.
"I'm going to have to use my dollies", McCarthy's Spicer shouts at the reporters, before explaing TSA airport policies. "Because that is the old Spicey and this is the new Spicey".
"We know she's ok because she's blonde".
At first, McCarthy's Spicer was calm only to erupt with anger within seconds.
Other highlights of the episode included cast regular Kate McKinnon in a fun, Fatal Attraction-esque sequence in which her Kellyanne Conway won't rest until Bennett's Jake Tapper agrees to put her back on CNN.
It got real pretty quickly.
"Now who's next? Uh-oh - Moana", she said. "But then Melissa played Spicer and I was like, 'Yo, why can't I play Trump?'" But SNL creator Lorne Michaels had a few thoughts on the matter, so an irate Jones wasn't quite able to give "America what it wants".
She then yells at him and smashes his Emmy.
"We know she's OK because she's blond", McCarthy's Spicer said of Barbie. "The whole thing felt like a nature special".
"Spicer" proceeded to talk about Trump now meeting the President of Japan (being unable to pronounce anyone's name), "extreme vetting" (using Barbie, Action Man and Moana figures to explain his standpoint) and terrorist attacks. She explained that by "field", she meant "harass people with a leafblower and a remote control mobile podium".
Baldwin's Trump tells the judge that Putin is "someone who's known me for years".
