Between Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and the Grim Reaper as Steve Bannon, Saturday Night Live has been pretty great at doing political impressions with the new administration. But last night, they revealed the best one yet: Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer.
In the second cold opening of the evening, according to Cosmopolitan, McCarthy played an extremely angry Spicer who was ready for his nap and tbh, it was spot on.
And it isn't just me who thinks that.
LOL Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer isn't just good, it's the only reasonable justification for his existence.

Laughcrying at Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer, which makes a nice change from crying at Sean Spicer's Sean Spicer.
