Melissa McCarthy Brings Down The (White) House on Saturday Night Live

The Ghostbusters star pokes fun at Trump Administration Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Kristen Stewart may be the guest host, but it was Melissa McCarthy who stole the thunder as Trump administration press secretary Sean Spicer. In the eight-minute skit, an almost unrecognisable McCarthy has a field day lampooning Spicer’s brash demeanor, his often tense relationship with the press, and his love for “alternate facts”. “Before we begin, I know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start,” says ‘Spicer’ at a White House briefing. “When I say ‘rocky start’, I mean it in the sense of Rocky the movie because I came out here to punch you.” A man portrayed by a woman? Donald Trump must be fuming. (Reports say he is.) If you aren't following American politics (it’s very hard not to these days), you’d have thought Spicer was a made-up character (we wish) waiting for movie spin-off.  (Photo: TPG News/Click Photos)
