As if Saturday Night Live’s Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin sketches weren’t enough, SNL is back with yet another dig at the Trump administration. This week, Melissa McCarthy stole the show with a killer impression of press secretary, Sean Spicer.
Highlighting Spicer’s strained relationship with the press, McCarthy joked, “I’d like to begin today by apologizing on behalf of you to me for how you have treated me these last two weeks, and that apology is not accepted.”
McCarthy went on to mock the Trump administration’s obsession with ratings. “When he entered the room, the crowd greeted him with a standing ovation which lasted a full 15 minutes, and you can check the tape on that. Everyone was smiling, everyone was happy, the men all had erections, and every single one of the women were ovulating left and right. And no one was sad, those are the facts forever,” she quipped.
The jokes didn’t end there. McCarthy also tackled Trump’s Muslim ban, Chief White House Strategist Steve Bannon’s use of props to explain executive orders to the press and Trump’s Secretary of Education nominee Betty DeVos.
A clueless DeVos, played by Kate McKinnon, joked “I don’t know anything about school, but I do think there should be a school, probably Jesus school, and I think it should have walls and roof and gun for potential grizzly.”
