| TV and Movies

Melissa McCarthy made her triumphant return to last nightSaturday Night Live, while reprising her celebrated role as White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

Skewering his political gaffe earlier this week after comparing Syrian leader to Hitler and concentration camps to Holocaust centers, McCarthy came out swinging in a bunny suit — a reference to Spicer having played the Easter Bunny at a White House Easter event during the George W. Bush administration. 

“Everybody shut up so I can apologize,” she roared. Spicer went on to claim that Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons during World War II, and called Nazi concentration “Holocaust centers.”

McCarthy came out shouting, “It would be really great if the nitpickers tried to see the big pictures and didn’t solely focus on every little slur and lie I say. That'd be nice!”

Alec Baldwin also reprised his impression of Donald Trump during this week’s cold open, which also poked fun at the alleged feud between his top advisors, Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, his son-in-law, who was portrayed by host, Jimmy Fallon.
