Melissa McCarthy Returns to 'SNL' as Sean Spicer

Sean Spicer White House press secretary for U.S. President Donald Trump gives his daily briefing to a packed room on Wednesday

"I'm blowing away their dishonesty", Spicer said.

The cold open was one of several sketches that focused on the president and his staff as Alec Baldwin, whose Trump impression has been reviled by the man himself, hosted the show for a record 17th time.

And once again, she mocked Spicer's testy relationship with the press. "When I say something wrong, you guys should know what it is I'm meaning, wrong or right. But then my friend Mitch McConnell swooped in like an alligator, bite her head off", McKinnon drawled about Sessions' confirmation. "The whole thing felt like a nature special".

The reporter who tried to interject with actual statistics (played by Cecily Strong, daughter of real-life IL newsman Bill Strong) got attacked by Spicer's leafblower. He revealed some of the terrorist attacks that the press hadn't written about.

'It is real, ' Spicer says. The horror at Six Flags. "The slaughter at Fraggle Rock!".

Yeah, I said that wrong when I said it.

A QVC-like chyron appeared on the screen: "It is attractive". Showing off a Trump bracelet, McCarthy coos, "It's lovely, it's shimmery, it's elegant, and it's $39.99". "And it's $39.99? It's unbelievably affordable. OK?" "And don't even get me started on her shoes". "And I will remain calm, as long as you sons of b-I'm not going to do that, because that's the old Spicey, and this is the new Spicey". "And I have been told that I'm to cut back on the gum chewing".

Whether it be his inability to pronounce Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's name, or his bald-faced lies to the press, Spicer has been comically bad in his first month on the job.

Bobby Moynihan also returned -this time wearing a hat- with his impersonation of New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush who asked about Donald Trump's travel ban that was suspended by a federal judge.

Spicer didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on his portrayal.

"Duh, 'that isn't real".

Saturday Night Live also took the opportunity to poke fun at several gaffes committed by the Trump administration in the past two weeks.

McCarthy's Spicer did Conway one better, and for a brief moment turned the press briefing into a QVC special, shilling for Ivanka's products. For the "dumb babies" reporters, McCarthy dragged "dollies" out of demonstration boxes marked with the presidential seal, including an agent in camouflage and a Barbie doll who's "a nice American girl, back from her dream vacation", Spicey explains. "Easy. We understand that". "Guantanamo Bay", she said of the Moana doll.
