President Trump isn’t happy Sean Spicer was ‘mocked by a woman’ on SNL

February 7, 2017

President Trump isn’t happy about THAT Saturday Night Live sketch on his press secretary Sean Spicer.

Melissa McCarthy appeared as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on SNL Saturday night and absolutely killed it.

But a top donor to Trump has said the president was “unhappy Sean Spicer mocked by a woman” in the portrayal.

“Trump doesn’t like his people to look weak,” according to reports.

Spicer has even responded to the SNL sketch himself, saying that McCarthy “needs to slow down on the gum chewing; way too many pieces in there,” speaking while abroad Air Force One.

The actor, who recently starred in the Ghostbusters remake, took on the role of Spicer and perfectly mocked relations between the Trump administration and the press.

She addressed the “rocky start” that Spicer and the press had: “When I say rocky start, I mean it in the sense of Rocky the movie.

“Because I came out here to punch you! In the face!”

Before starting on the group of journalists, that included Kristen Stewart, ‘Spicer’ talked about apologising to the reporters.

“I’d like to begin today by apologising on behalf of you, to me, for how you treated me in the last two weeks.”

 

A recent SNL sketch saw Alec Baldwin return to his role as Trump as the president made out with Vladimir Putin, FBI & Ku Klux Klan.

Kate McKinnon also made a fitting tribute to Hillary Clinton, a character she played numerous times in the run up to the election, in a cold open that saw her emotionally sing Hallelujah.

You can watch the full, hilarious sketch here:
