Melissa McCarthy returned to “Saturday Night Live” this weekend to reprise her role as White House press secretary Sean Spicer, and as she did last week, she portrayed him as eccentric, short-tempered and disrespectful to journalists.
Alec Baldwin also returned to “SNL” this weekend, marking his 17th time as the show’s host.
During the show’s cold open, McCarthy’s gum-chewing Spicer ruled over a press briefing, during which dolls are used — in a condescending manner — to explain talking points to reporters.
“I’m going to have to use my dollies,” McCarthy’s Spicer shouts at the reporters, before explaing TSA airport policies. “Alright, you ready for dollies? So you can understand what’s going on. Here’s how it’s going to go down. You’ve got your TSA agent right here [picking up a Barbie doll out of a box.] First you’ve got Barbie coming in. Nice American girl. Back from a dream vacation. We know she is OK, because she’s blond, so she gets in. Easy. We understand.”
