The biting sketch opened with a press brief led by Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant), who explained that she would be covering for Spicer while he was busy serving in the Navy reserves.
Eventually, though, Spicer is egged on reporters who repeatedly ask if Trump is lying to him.
Spicer has, of late, been uproariously lampooned by actress Melissa McCarthy on "Saturday Night Live" over his frequently combative discourse with journalists. "Trump is innocent! How do we know?"
Be proactive - Use the "Flag as Inappropriate" link at the upper right corner of each comment to let us know of abusive posts. "He hired lawyers to agree with him". She's been putting a lot into this episode, even taking it to the streets when earlier this week she was seen dressed as Sean Spicer, driving his podium through the streets of NY. In fury, McCarthy picks up a pillar and launches it at the reporters, playing on the perception that the real-life Spicer becomes far too agitated when questioned by reporters.
"Yes", Baldwin reply's before grabbing McCarthy in a passionate kiss.
"Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?" he asks. "First of all, here's Trump", McCarthy began. "Only since you started working here", the president responded. McCarthy's Spicer asked Trump, played by Alec Baldwin. Trump assured he would never do that, and then embraces his press secretary for a lengthy kiss. "I'm famous, it's okay".
"Have you ever told me to say things that are untrue?" an out of breath Spicer asks Trump.
The sketch show also interpreted Trump's surreal back-and-forth with NBC anchor Lester Holt on Thursday, concluding that if Comey's firing won't tank the White House - nothing will.
"But that's obstruction of justice", Che-as-Holt said, to which "Trump" replied, "Sure, OK". Since his infamous first briefing in January in which he lectured reporters on Trump's inauguration crowd size in a freaky ritual of favor-currying, Spicer has struggled through a series of painful missteps and meme-worthy gaffes.
"Sure, O.K.", Baldwin's Trump shrugs, knowing that without Republicans willing to stand up to him, he can get away with just about anything.
