Donald Trump is proving uniquely impervious to the usual techniques of shame and embarrassment, whether by intelligence agencies or the writers at Saturday Night Live.
Melissa McCarthy made a guest appearance on SNL on Saturday to portray one of the show's last remaining members of Trump's amusing little cabinet, Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
McCarthy's Spicer introduced McKinnon's DeVos a few minutes into the White House press briefing skit.
During the show's recent cold open, Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer came out in front of White House press corp to punch them "in the face, and also I don't talk so good". In the act, McCarthy walks in to address the press and begins by apologising to herself on behalf of the press present there.
In real life, a similar interaction took place: Spicer criticized a reporter last week for using the term "ban" despite the fact that both President Trump and Spicer himself had used the word just the day before.
Check out the sketch below.
The sketch was quickly applauded on social media sites like Twitter, where Melissa McCarthy was the trending topic for many hours on Saturday night. "The apology is not accepted".
"Yeah, I wanted to ask about the travel ban on muslims", the reporter asks.
"Everyone was smiling. Everyone was happy".
Like the real press secretary does, she engaged in a fight with a reporter.
Kristen Stewart, who hosted the February 4 show, was playing a reporter in the skit and asked about Bannon's role on the National Security Council.
"Saturday Night Live" didn't hold back on mocking Donald Trump - not only bringing Alec Baldwin back to reprise his role as the president, but also adding a special guest.
McCarthy, 46, looked almost unrecognizable in an ill-fitting grey suit, lightly combed-over hair and angry expression as she stood behind a podium in one of the night's best skits.
Baldwin's sketch saw him giving disastrous phone calls to world leaders, overseen by a grim reaper-like Steve Bannon.
Spicer/McCarthy: "I'M USING YOUR WORDS". "Because I'm hosting "SNL" and I'm, like, so gay, dude".
