Melissa McCarthy Hosts 'Saturday Night Live'

Spicey proceeds to beat up on journalist Glenn Thrush, accidentally give out more personal information on live TV, and use his trusted visual tools to explain the Comey firing.

"Can you just do this full time?" one reporter asked.

Anxious for his job, Spicer began a dogged quest to Trump's hometown - using the same podium footage witnessed in Manhattan on Friday - to question the President on his apparent lies to the White House mouthpiece.

It is McCarthy's fourth appearance on the show, having most recently appeared as Sean Spicer in a bunny costume around Easter time.

Spicer then told Trump he couldn't do this anymore, which led the President to say how much he cares about Spicer and even request a kiss. McCarthy's Spicer asked Trump, played by Alec Baldwin.

Anticipation for the latest skit on Saturday (13 May) had grown throughout the week when McCarthy was seen filming on the streets of NY.

Saturday Night Live has a lot to work with so far this week, but it's their new promo with Melissa McCarthy doing an "oh so pretty" impersonation of Sean Spicer that just might entice you to tune in.

Bryant announced "Sanders" was filling in for "Spicer", but it's quickly pointed out that McCarthy is watching from the bushes.

Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer roams Manhattan in search of answers. Spicer shouted. "That's why I put them out".

At one point, the sketch mocked Trump's attempts to distance himself from Russian Federation with a letter from his lawyers.

As Sanders bats away suggestions that Spicer is hiding in the bushes, a reporter asks her to take on the role full-time "instead of him".

"Wait - is this like "The Godfather" where you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?"

Go to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., the doorman suggests. Trump said. Asked about how that would look, Trump said, "Think I care about optics?" She then proceeded to unpack the doll saying, "Here's Trump".
