Melissa McCarthy captures the tragic and frantic existence of Sean Spicer perfectly

According to reports, Sean Spicer is on shaky ground in the Trump White House, and Saturday Night Live is doing its part to make things more difficult for him.

This weekend Melissa McCarthy made her return portraying the White House Press Secretary, and the depicted battle between Spicer and the press pool seemed like it could be real.

There’s a tragic nature to Spicer that MacCarthy’s acting seems to elucidate. He’s kind of like the Kamikaze of White House Press Secretaries — he knows he’s going to crash and burn at some point, he just has to do as much damage as he can.

McCarthy’s Spicer explained the Muslim ban with her toy “dollies,” rattled off a few more made-up terror attacks (the Horror at Six Flags, the Slaughter at Fraggle Rock, etc), and followed up with some fake murder statistics.

Even new Attorney General Jeff Sessions showed up.
