May 12, 2017You already know it's going to be a good week for #SNL when Melissa McCarthy is spotted on 58th st with the Sean Spicer podiumobile!
Melissa McCarthy dressed as Sean Spicer drives lectern past Time Warner building in New York City.
McCarthy, whose impersonation of White House press secretary Sean Spicer for "Saturday Night Live" reportedly angered Spicer's boss (because McCarthy's a woman), hinted on Tuesday at a return of the communications chief. The Spicey surprise came in the same week that SNL released a promo video featuring McCarthy getting Spiced up, set to West Side Story's "I Feel Pretty".
"To prepare for her hosting duties, McCarthy has been "watching and observing" President Donald Trump's press secretary".
The show will air simultaneously on both coasts. You actually have to go all the way back to her first appearance as host on October 1, 2011 to find McCarthy's all-time greatest "SNL" sketch, titled "Taste Test". The show's choice to have McCarthy play Spicer in drag reportedly infuriated President Trump, and given what a politically charged week it's been for the Trump administration, some viewers seem to viewing McCarthy as a general leading an "army of comedy".
It's the second-to-last episode of this season.
SNL will once again be live coast-to-coast this Saturday.
Joining McCarthy as the night's musical guest is lana Haim, Danielle Haim and Este Haim better known as the members of HAIM - who will be making their Saturday Night Live debut as the night's musical guests.
The show most definitely has a lot of Spicey material to work with this week.
