Melissa McCarthy adds spice (and Spicer) as host of 'SNL'

Melissa McCarthy adds spice (and Spicer) as host of 'SNL'

Although Lively and Reynold's appearance appeared totally random, it was a star-studded night for McCarthy who joined the Saturday Night Live 5 Timers club.

It's been a bad week for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

What we see in this video is McCarthy appearing to become very frustrated with traffic - an odd thing to feel in NY. We wonder if Kimberly Guilfoyle is doing the same dance while thinking about the job she's about to take from incumbent Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

The show aimed high by having McCarthy cruise the streets of Manhattan on a rolling podium in search of Donald Trump.

It turns out that scene was the lead-up to a shocking conclusion for her Spicer sketch Saturday, and one that involved "SNL's" other main political impersonator: Alec Baldwin.

Trump later was asked if FBI Director James Comey was sacked because of the ongoing probe into Russian interference of last year's election. Trump said his choice would be "so bonkers" everyone would wish it were Judge Judy.

While no David S. Pumpkins, McCarthy took on some brilliantly stupid physical comedy in the Press Your Luck parody game show, Just Desserts! The White House has kept back any comments so far but we don't expect it to last for long.

Aidy Bryant stepped to the press podium as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Spicer's stand-in this week, where she stated she did not know where Spicer was.

Judges raise thorny questions about revised Trump travel ban
Critics say Trump's executive order is nothing more than the Muslim ban he promised during his presidential campaign. Recall, President Trump said he'd close the border to Muslims on the campaign trail, hinted at it again this year.

He pitched two shutouts in 13 games this post-season and, upon exiting in the second round, boasts a.924 save percentage. He stopped 26 of 28 shots over the previous three hours - and 120 of 127 in the last three games - but it wasn't enough.

These cuts appear unlikely to pass the Parliament, at least in this term, but the government remains committed to them. It was a great time to be in government. "There is clearly the potential for better days ahead", Mr Morrison said.

Finally, a reporter asked McCarthy's Spicer if she thought Trump would fire her next. Baldwin's Trump insisted that it was a description of his need to "tug at myself for about a half an hour before Melania comes in so she can find it easier".

The sketch next addressed questions over the firing of Comey, amid an ongoing investigation between Trump's links suspected Russian attempts to influence the USA election. Because he told us so!

McCarthy-Spicer promptly had at it as he took questions from reporters about James Comey's firing and whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

And despite Spicer finding himself amused by the "funny", if not over the top impersonation, the depiction was reportedly so damaging that it upset Spicer's boss.

But was this true? She was asked during the press briefing where Spicer was. "I'm going to NY". "You like when I do that Sean?" Spicer asked Trump after tracking him down.

It's a move that had Trump and Spicer soon trending on Twitter, with folks writing about how much the SNL kiss might provoke the "Real Donald Trump" on Twitter.
