Melissa McCarthy mocks Sean Spicer with motorized podium

Adjust Comment Print

Melissa McCarthy has taken her spoof of White House press secretary Sean Spicer to the streets - literally.

Whether Trump fires Spicer or not, one thing is clear: the press secretary gave McCarthy one of her most memorable roles.

Spicer then cranked up his motorized podium and hit the road in NY to confront Trump and find out if the president has, in fact, been feeding him lies.

"Let me just put this whole Russian thing to bed once and for all, Trump is innocent", McCarthy's press secretary said.

"I know we think this every week, but this week was insane", says Colin Jost, in kicking off Weekend Update. "Because he TOLD us so!"

When pressed if Trump is lying to him, Spicer insists "he wouldn't do that, he's my friend".

It was later corrected to say Spicer was "among" the bushes, not "in" the bushes.

Kadonaga says she figured a few people might get a laugh out of it and was "shocked" to soon find her Spicer in the bush cutout trending on sites such as Twitter as well as appearing in mainstream media across North America and beyond.

He has also referred to McCarthy's tendency, when dressed as Spicer, to drive a motorized lectern rapidly toward a reporter who asks an aggravating question. Unfortunately, Trump was at "a golf course in New Jersey".

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

Next week is the show's season finale, with Baldwin already locked down to play Trump. Reynolds replied, "You invited us". His journey ends at a NY golf course where he asks Baldwin-as-Trump: "Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?"

"Sean, come on. I would never do that", Baldwin's Trump insists. Holt asks. Either way, it was SNL's turn to troll the Trump administration.

"No, no, no, I am nothing like Nixon. And then I get off, and I have all of these texts, like 'Oh, my God, are you looking at what's happening?"
