Melissa McCarthy returned to “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend to portray White House press secretary Sean Spicer — and she did not disappoint.
In a hilarious Easter-themed skit, McCarthy, as Spicer, walks out during the White House Easter egg roll in a Easter bunny costume to make some remarks behind the presidential lectern.
McCarthy, as Spicer, began the short press briefing by apologizing for recent gaffes Spicer made in real life.
"Everybody shut up so I can apologize,” McCarthy yelled to the press. “Yes, you all got your wish this week, didn’t you? Spicy finally made a mistake."
“I know they’re not really called the ‘Holocaust centers’…I clearly meant to say ‘concentration club,’ okay? Let it drop!” McCarthy screamed.
She followed it up with a quip about United Airlines.
"I would also like you to know that I am sensitive to the fact that they were sent there on trains,” she said. “Hey, at least they didn’t have to fly United, am I right?"
Afterward, McCarthy broke out her famed dolls to give the press an illustration. This time, the dolls appeared to be Veggie Tales characters and she used them to explain the story of Passover, which she called “Jewish Easter.” She even almost made another Hitler gaffe.
"[Pharoah’s] doing some really bad stuff to the Jews, okay?” McCarthy, as Spicer, said. “I mean he even Hitler…you know what, not gonna do it. Not gonna go there again."
She ended the press briefing with one final note: “The president is probably going to bomb North Korea tonight."
Then she drove over her lectern and through the White House Easter egg roll with a motorized Easter egg cart.
The skit pokes fun at a major gaffe Spicer made last week when he claimed that unlike Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, German dictator Adolf Hitler never used chemical weapons. Of course, this is false because tens of thousands of innocent people were murdered in gas chambers at Hitler’s concentration camps.
In that same press briefing, Spicer also referred to concentration camps as “Holocaust centers."
As for the bunny suit, well:
