Melissa McCarthy adds spice (and Spicer) as host of 'SNL'

Melissa McCarthy takes her Sean Spicer impersonation to the streets

President Donald Trump acknowledges the crowd as he takes the stage to give the commencement address for the Class of 2017 at Liberty University in Lynchburg Va. Saturday

In both this past Easter's episode and last night, Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer went to that level. On Friday, social media captured Melissa McCarthy's Spicey - who often lifts up his podium and uses it to intimidate reporters - rolling through Manhattan traffic via motorized podium, yelling at cars to get out of the way. There was no way McCarthy wasn't going to mock Spicer for it, and she definitely delivers!

After deflecting more questions about the possibility of being replaced, McCarthy's Spicer drives her podium out of the White House press room all the way to New York City, where Simon & Garfunkel's "The Only Living Boy in New York" plays as he angrily sobs and promises to "talk better".

"He wouldn't do that", McCarthy's Spicer said. After she explained she was filing in for Spicer, who was fulfilling his commitment in the Naval Reserve, a reporter pointed out that he was hiding in the bushes.

"I have a wife, I took vows", McCarthy's Spicer answers. "Sarah's out!" The topic inevitably turns to Comey's firing.

When it comes to accusations that his boss colluded with the Russians to win the election, Spicey insisted, "he's innocent". Though we all know where he really is. He told us so.There's no Russian Federation thing. "He hired lawyers to agree with him". Here it is again, just in case you missed (or want to relive) the wonder that is McCarthy's musical number transformation into Sean "Spicey" Spicer.

Alec Baldwin was back as President Trump in "Saturday Night Live's" cold open, parrying with Michael Che in a spoof of this week's much-publicized interview with NBC News' Lester Holt. The inner dolls represented Comey, Hillary Clinton, Steve Bannon and Jeff Sessions, who were depicted as various cartoon characters.

Amazon's Touchscreen Echo Show Announced; Alexa updated with Voice Calls
There is also no way to disable the Alexa calling service once the service has been configured with a user's phone number. For example, when playing music, you can have the lyrics scroll on screen - or you could watch a music video instead.

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

SNL cast Aidy Bryant as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, with Sanders as the potential threat to Spicer's job.

But what if he's lying to Spicer, reporters ask. "He wouldn't do that, he's my friend!"

"No I'm married", Spicer replied. When McCarthy's Spicer finally confronted Baldwin's Trump, the press secretary asked, "Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?" "I think it's a good idea".

Overall, I would trade all the jokes that Trump and his team have supplied to comedians for a different presidential administration.

After no luck at Trump Tower, McCarthy's Spicer finds Alec Baldwin's President Donald Trump at a golf course in New Jersey.
