Melissa McCarthy drives motorized stake through Sean Spicer in NYC

Melissa McCarthy reprised her role as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer Friday morning in an unexpected way.

Turning serious, she added, "I don't have any advice for Sean Spicer".

According to SNL-Sean-Spicer-outside-CNN.html">The Mail, she was heard shouting at traffic and pedestrians to "get out the way" as she sped towards CNN HQ.

Potentially being replaced by Mike Huckabee's daughter, the firing of the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, having to hide in among bushes in an attempt to dodge reporters-it's enough to make the Spicer of just a few weeks ago seem relatively carefree. "The impersonation will likely supersede the real person, like Dana Carvey's George H.W. Bush or Chevy Chase's deeply inaccurate yet effective Gerald Ford".

The sketch ends with McCarthy completely drenching herself in ranch dressing, then spooning it off her chest and into her mouth.

Melissa McCarthy's writers deserve a raise.

Boston needs to make sure to set the tone and impose their will in such an important game against a team they are better than. Beal finished with a game-high 33 points and forward Markieff Morris added a double-double of 16 points with 11 rebounds.

Spicer said in an interview with the news magazine show Extra in February that the impression was "funny", although he also suggested she "could dial back" the performance somewhat.

I'm happy to say that Melissa McCarthy will be hosting the show tonight.

He has also referred to McCarthy's tendency, when dressed as Spicer, to drive a motorized lectern rapidly toward a reporter who asks an aggravating question. This has led to reports that Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders could be replacing him.

Juicy tidbits like these give fodder to "SNL" writers while building excitement around the show.

After weeks of reruns, Saturday Night Live finally returned with fresh offerings last weekend with a little help from Wonder Woman star Chris Pine and special musical guest James Murphy. I can't wait to see what McCarthy does with that. "After all, the president has been known to watch television - and sometimes have strong reactions".
