That's because McCarthy was spotted in full wardrobe as "Spicey" cruising around the streets of New York City afternoon on a motorized podium.
In a second, longer sketch, "SNL" host Melissa McCarthy reprised her take on White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, complete with him hiding in the bushes, a references to a recent Washington Post account.
A reporter from the pool then asked McCarthy about the hot topic: Russian collusion. "He's trying to blend in with his surroundings".
An impatient Spicey ousts Bryant's Sanders at the podium to reluctantly take questions, mostly batting down inquiries about Russian collusion. Donald Trump being who (and how) he is, it doesn't seem impossible that he might let his press secretary go just to put McCarthy's impressions to an end. His journey ends at a NY golf course where he asks Baldwin-as-Trump: "Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?"
Ah, the "Spicey" we all know and love. He told us so.There's no Russian Federation thing. Period! Then he hired lawyers to agree with him. "And they're going to prove it with a certified letter, which you know is the truth because it cost an extra $2 to have it certified".
Spicer cranked up his motorized podium and hit the road for NY to confront Trump and find out. And that's when McCarthy's Spicey once again explains a major Trump presidency event with dolls.
Facing questions over Trump's mental state amid a series of tweet storms, McCarthy's Spicer then claimed that "If he's insane, he's insane like a fox with mental problems".
"Only since you started working here", Trump replies.
It sometimes seems the opposition to Trump is carried by a cadre of Irish Americans - Colbert, Maher, Baldwin, McCarthy, even Fallon these days.
"I'm famous, it's OK", Baldwin said, in a reference to the leaked 2005 video where Trump said he could get away with grabbing women because he's famous. "I swear I'll talk better".
