SNL Fans Are Super Worried About Sean Spicer's Career

Melissa McCarthy Rides Sean Spicer's Podium Around NYC

After teasing NY drivers with her Sean Spicer costume and a ride on her motorized podium, Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live as a host and as her now-infamous version of the White House Press Secretary. He finally finds Baldwin-as-Trump at a golf course in NY, and asks him the burning question: "Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?"

When the White House press corps asked if Sanders could be press secretary forever, Spicer blasted the room with a fire extinguisher before forcing Sanders off his podium.

Trump reassures Spicer that he won't replace him with Sanders ("She doesn't have your special spice"), and the two exchanged a passionate embrace. "He's trying to blend in with his surroundings", she said. McCarthy's "Spicey" could be seen peering in from outside the White House looking confused and distraught. The "SNL" audience roared.

"If they get it just a little wrong, they don't mean to", Trump continued.

"Trump moved on Spicer like a b****".

When words weren't enough, McCarthy turned to a handpainted Russian nesting dolls she had onhand to explain the White House's chain-of-command.

The faux Trump acknowledged he fired FBI Director James Comey because of his investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, only for Holt to learn that "absolutely nothing matters" when it comes to this president. As to the reporter who asked the question: "I honestly hope to God I killed her".

Then a reporter asked, "Were you surprised Trump fired Comey before he fired you?"

Could this really be the end for Spicey?!

One sketch featured McCarthy as the hot-tempered Spicer commandeering his motorized podium through the streets of midtown Manhattan - a sequence spotted by the media on Friday while it was being filmed.

Trump and his staff took more knocks during Weekend Update, as we learned the real definition of "basic atrocities", the awkward phrase Sarah Huckabee Sanders used to describe Comey's actions in handling Hillary Clinton's email Scandal. There's a fear that comedy will minimize the grave risks Trump poses to America - at least as seen by those who oppose him. McCarthy asks Baldwin, who is playing the president in the sketch.

McCarthy's Spicer reiterated, "There is no Russian thing". "I need to find Trump!"

The sketch comes after McCarthy was spotted on the streets of New York City on Spicer's mobile press podium.

"Only since you started working here", Baldwin's Trump responded.

"SNL Spicer N Trump love-in; Guaranteed". The biggest and "most beautiful" doll, according to Spicer, held a likeness of Trump.

McCarthy's Spicer and Baldwin's Trump flirted, with Trump tickling Spicer and Spicer declaring he had a wife. "SNL" then reminded us of Trump's vile comments on the Access Hollywood bus when Baldwin told "Spicer", "I'm famous - it's okay". Recent reports have questioned Spicer's job security.
