Melissa McCarthy made a surprise visit to Saturday Night Live on February 4, channeling her signature comedic rage to play Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary who's spent the better part of the past two weeks defending President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration and the size of his inauguration crowd to a confused press.
She first stormed onstage in a square suit, glared out at the audience, and spat, "I'm apologizing on behalf of you to me, for how you've treated me for the last two weeks. And that apology is not accepted."
From there, McCarthy launched into a tirade so jam-packed with pettiness that it would make a Real Housewife proud. She handily skewered Trump's recent announcement of his Supreme Court nominee, declaring that the event featured a "standing ovation that lasted a full 15 minutes" and declaring that "everyone was smiling, everyone was happy, the men all had erections, and every single one of the women was ovulating left and right. No one was sad!"
Then McCarthy showered her face in gum and snarled, "I'm here to swallow gum, and I'm here to take names."
The sketch only got more chaotic as Spicer started taking questions from the press. The press secretary responded to a question from the New York Times with a "boo" and some word salad, insisting that Trump only called his immigration ban a "ban" because that's how the New York Times wrote about it: "He's using your words." When another reporter tried to ask about the White House's Holocaust statement that failed to mention Jewish people, McCarthy's Spicer sprayed him with a water gun.
