Watch out, White House Press Corps: Spicey’s back.
Melissa McCarthy answered comedy fans’ prayers, rolling back onto the Saturday Night Live stage as the embattled press secretary, complete with a motorized podium, ready to take the fight right to the front row of the briefing room.
Her Spicer also swapped out last week’s super soaker with a leaf blower trained on a reporter who dared question a White House statistic saying 80% of Chicagoans have been murdered.
There was also a QVC-style pitch for Ivanka Trump’s fashion line. “I’m wearing one of her bangles right now!” McCarthy/Spicer proclaimed before doing a Bridesmaids leg lift to show up a pair of patterned pumps.
But our favorite? The presidential prop box, which was rolled back out to explain extreme vetting.
“Ya got your TSA agent right here. First, we got Barbie. Nice American girl, back from her dream vacation. We know she’s OK because she’s blond. So she gets in. Now, who’s up next? Uh oh, it’s Moana. Whoa. Slow your roll, honey. We’re gonna pat her down. Then we’re gonna read her emails and if we don’t like the answers — which we won’t — BOOM! Guantanamo Bay!”
