Melissa McCarthy adds spice (and Spicer) as host of 'SNL'

The firing of Comey was also the basis for the show's cold open, which featured Baldwin's Trump sitting down with NBC's Lester Holt, played by Michael Che, to discuss the recent news. The press corps notices someone in the bushes outside the press room window: Sean Spicer, or "Spicey", as McCarthy refers to herself in the sketch.

Then there was this special added bonus: Aidy Bryant as Sarah Huckabee Sanders (assistant press secretary and stand-in for Spicer after a much ridiculed "bushes" incident last week; more on that in a bit).

Eventually, though, Spicer is egged on reporters who repeatedly ask if Trump is lying to him. She said the Republicans in Congress "needed to grow a pair and put their country before the party". The "SNL" audience roared. Trump might be canceling the Spicer show.

Go to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., the doorman suggests.

But Trump's White House has been taking a beating as it fails to coordinate and get out a coherent message.

Spicer was under a lot of scrutiny this week as he made was forced to comment after President Donald Trump terminated FBI James Comey unexpectedly on Tuesday.

After asking for Holt's undying loyalty, Baldwin's Trump plainly admits he fired Comey over his investigation into possible collusion between the administration and Russian Federation.

Melissa McCarthy's latest satire of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer showed that the American people had lost all faith in Trump and his White House to tell them the truth about anything.

"I have a wife, I took vows", McCarthy's Spicer answers.

Could this really be the end for Spicey?!

"Wait - is this like "The Godfather" where you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?"

Next week is the show's season finale, with Baldwin already locked down to play Trump. Had Trump been feeding him lies?

But what upset "Spicey" even more was the suggestion that Trump hadn't been honest with him. This sends Spicey (on his podium) all the way to NYC to find his boss, fighting NYC traffic like we've all seen in those clips from Friday. Joan, the lucky mom who got chosen, seemed absolutely delighted by the entire experience-which is great news for Joan, but certain doom for her children, who have been left with the impossible task of following Melissa McCarthy on Mother's Day. Replies Trump, "Only since you started you started working here".

In the clip above, watch Spicer's final moments in the Trump administration, as imagined by "SNL". Mr. Trump grabbed Spicer and said, "Sean, kiss me", and when Spicer tried to resist, Mr. Trump said, "No, I'm famous, it's okay".
