President Trump, Sean Spicer are the 'stars' on a new 'SNL'

After a spate of guest appearances mocking White House press secretary Sean Spicer in recent weeks, she was back on Saturday's edition, May 13, 2017, of the NBC satire show to preside as host.

McCarthy's Spicer soon took over the briefing, and when the NY Times' Glenn Thrush (Bobby Moynihan) asked him whether Trump was "unhinged", McCarthy spat out, "Oh my God, Glenn, do I come to your job and slap the seven or eight hot dogs out of your mouth?"

But what separates this sketch from the others is one simple question from a reporter: "Were you surprised he fired Comey before he fired you?"

The Post initially described the scenario as Spicer standing "in the bushes" but later issued a clarification stating he was "among the bushes". As reporters compliment Sanders, McCarthy's Spicer bursts into the room to take over the discussion.

Sean Spicer's days as the White House press secretary could be nearing their end and "Saturday Night Live" did not pass up the opportunity to imagine what Spicer's final days would be. McCarthy's "Spicey" could be seen peering in from outside the White House looking confused and distraught. "Sarah's out", the faux press secretary declared. He's investigating Russian Federation. I don't like it.

Most other malicious programs rely on humans to spread by tricking them into clicking on an attachment harbouring the attack code. The company said the virus has been localized and "technical work is underway to destroy it and update the antivirus protection".

McCarthy swatted away questions from the reporters questioning Trump's fitness. Let us know what you think in comments. "Because he told us so and he hired lawyers to agree with him and they provided a ceritfied letter ... it costs an extra $2 to certify". Yikes. When he gets to a matryoshka doll with Vladimir Putin on it, McCarthy's Spicer tries to hide it. But if not, this was a fitting send-off for one of the more surprisingly indelible aspects of this season. Finally, Steve Bannon is portrayed on a matryoshka doll Slimer from Ghostbusters and Attorney Jeff Sessions is Pikachu.

"Yes, so people are saying that based on President Trump's tweets that he is unhinged", asked a reporter. Baldwin's Trump asks, and then, yup, he asks for a kiss.

Spicer cranked up his motorized podium and hit the road for NY to confront Trump and find out. And this is why you may have seen video earlier in the week of McCarthy driving her press podium on the streets of New York City. McCarthy's Spicer asked Baldwin's Trump, who replied, "Only since you started working here".

Spicer then told Trump he couldn't do this anymore, which led the President to say how much he cares about Spicer and even request a kiss.

The sketch next addressed questions over the firing of Comey, amid an ongoing investigation between Trump's links suspected Russian attempts to influence the U.S. election.
