Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer reaches a breaking point on Saturday Night Live


So when Spicer, like everyone else, saw clips surfacing Friday morning of Melissa McCarthy dressed as him driving around New York City on a motorized podium (made by a Montgomery county company), he probably knew to avoid watching Saturday Night Live this week.

The sketch opened with Sarah Huckabee Sanders taking the podium, who was filling in for Spicer because he was fulfilling his Naval Reserve duty.

She then proceeds to berate reporters asking about Trump's decision to fire Comey and whether it was related to the FBI's investigation into possible collusion between his campaign associates and Russian Federation.

Alright, let me just put this whole Russian thing to bed once and for all.

"Trump is innocent", she said. Because he told us so. One of Spicer's assistants is said to have emerged and communicated to the press that the press secretary would answer questions as long as cameras and lights were off.

One reporter then asked Spicer that if Trump is such a good friend, why is everyone saying that Trump is about to replace Spicer with Sanders?

It led to the cross-country trip that saw McCarthy riding Spicer's podium through the streets of NY this week, eventually ending with the return of Alec Baldwin's Trump-where the two share a few special words and get, well, pretty close.

He later faced an additional 15 years in jail after he was convicted of conspiring to escape from prison in Leavenworth, Kansas. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has spoken on the phone with newly freed Puerto Rican nationalist Oscar Lopez Rivera.

"Have you ever told me to say thing that aren't true?" Spicer finds Trump (played by Alec Baldwin) and pleads for his job. "Only since you started working here", the president responded.

"Is this like in Godfather when you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?"

The first blast of the show's satire went to Trump's axing of FBI Director James Comey.

"Sean, come on. I would never do that", Baldwin's Trump insists. From a showdown with "Spicey", to an interview opposite Lester Holt, Trump was interrogated, but managed to escape scrutiny as only Trump can. "Is this all over", asked Holt, speaking to his producer on whether Trump just admitted to obstruction of justice.

"No, no, no, I am nothing like Nixon".

Enter Mikey Day's Paul Ryan, delivering ice cream, and a defiant Trump making a Nixon-esque two-handed Victory salute - for two scoops.

"Wait, did I get him?"
