The Best Donald Trump and Sean Spicer Moments from 'Saturday Night Live'

The Best Donald Trump and Sean Spicer Moments from 'Saturday Night Live'

Kyle and Leslie - This has been one of my favorite ongoing sketches from this season.

Hollywood heavyweights Melissa McCarthy and Alec Baldwin have made an impressive return to Saturday Night Live, reprising their now infamous roles as Sean Spicer and Donald Trump.

McCarthy finds Trump at his New Jersey golf club, where the two literally kiss and make up. (It's like you can't even film a bit in busy NY traffic anymore.) But it was still a customary, crowd-pleasing hoot to see McCarthy's accurately belligerent, truth-twisting Spicer emerging from his hiding place in the White House hedges to unseat seemingly inevitable replacement spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant). And of course, she's recently joined the pantheon of iconic SNL political impressions with her belligerent, gum-chewing take on White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

"Oh my god, Glen, do I come to your job and slap the seven or eight hot dogs out of your mouth?" she said.

Three months ago, McCarthy debuted her Sean Spicer impersonation during SNL's open, which immediately went viral.

But here's the troubling news.

Iraq, Algeria support extension of oil production cuts
The EIA also raised its production forecast for 2018 from 9.9 million barrels a day to "almost" 10 million barrels. Stocks at the Cushing, Oklahoma, delivery hub for US crude futures USOICC=ECI fell 438,000 barrels, EIA said.

Not long ago Trump appeared happy with Spicer because, he said, "That guy gets great ratings".

Jost also earned some shocked gasps from the audience with this zinger: "White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tried to evade reporters by ducking into some bushes".

Initially hiding among the bushes - playing on reports that Spicer concealed himself near shrubbery to avoid questions over Comey - McCarthy stormed the press briefing room with a fire extinguisher to put the "pants out" of the press for lying, before declaring: "Spicey's back, Sarah's out". In the sketch, Che's Holt is shocked when Baldwin-as-Trump admits to firing Comey because of the Russian Federation probe.

One of the journalists next asks Spicey, "Were you surprised he fired Comey before he fired you?" "She doesn't have your special spice, salt and pepper and a little bit of sugar".

Could this really be the end for Spicey?! A bonkers new Spicer sketch that took to the streets of NY?

Trump answers: "I'm famous". Had Trump been feeding him lies?

At one point, Spicer's wrath causes him to tear down a decorative column and toss it into the front row of assembled journalists.
