Melissa McCarthy Outdoes Herself In Second Week As Sean Spicer

Melissa McCarthy took on the role of White House press secretary Sean Spicer for the second week in a row.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Melissa McCarthy returned to "Saturday Night Live" as White House press secretary Sean "Spicey" Spicer. The jokes packed into the opening segment covered a lot of the week's happening, from Trump's comments about Nordstrom dropping Ivanka Trump's merchandise to Spicer's gum-chewing habits. 

Alec Baldwin hosted "SNL" for a record-setting 17th time, but the show broke from its recent trend of having Baldwin open as President Donald Trump. Instead, McCarthy opened the show, allowing Baldwin to take on the monologue as himself. But he did get into his Trump character for an "SNL" version of "The People's Court."
