Melissa McCarthy Returns As Angry Sean Spicer On 'SNL'

Alec Baldwin hosted for an wonderful 17th time, and he joked about blackmailing executive producer Lorne Michaels for the spot in his opening monologue. Her "Spicey" struggled to control himself at the very start of a press conference in the cold open.

Separately, last night's episode had special meaning for guest host Alec Baldwin. The TV judge is siding with her brethren on the bench, telling Trump that his order "seemed rushed even to me, and I settle three court cases an hour".

He has yet to publicly comment on the comedy show's latest sketches. Tina Fey portrayed Sarah Palin while Amy Poehler portrayed Hillary Clinton.

But the hottest, most cutting line of the skit fell to Kate McKinnon as Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Trump has lashed out at SNL on a number of occasions for its satirization of him and his administration, branding the show "unwatchable" and "not funny" in a December tweet.

"I have been told that I am going to cut back on the gum chewing, so I've cut back to one slice a day", McCarthy as Spicer said, referring to Spicer's admission that he swallows over two packs of gum every day. Hammond hasn't appeared as Donald Trump since Baldwin stepped into the role. Next week Saturday Night Live is off but will return on March 4 with Octavia Spencer hosting.

"First of all, I'd just like to announce that I'm calm now", she shouted at the gathered reporters.

McCarthy brought back the prop work from last week's episode to explain "extreme vetting", saying, "Spicey is going to explain so you dumb babies can understand it".

While we didn't get the Rosie O'Donnell Steve Bannon segment we were hoping for, Saturday Night Live took the Sean Spicer gag a step further last night. The video claimed the number one spot.

Just so everyone knows, Sean Spicer is a brand-new man. "Speaking of freak and stupid ones, Glenn Thrush, New York Times, go!" Sometimes videos trend for the wrong reason, like the way everyone slows down and stares at a auto wreck on the side of the highway.

We can't wait to see what they do with these characters next. Are you a fan of the show?

If you didn't watch, catch up now with our favorite clips.

The episode, while devoid of "legendary" skits like those of which Baldwin had been a part of before, was amusing from start to finish - even if you weren't there for the political comedy.
