Melissa McCarthy returns to ‘SNL’ to blast Sean Spicer in cold open


Based on the wild success of last week’s Melissa McCarthy appearance on Saturday Night Live, where she absolutely lambasted White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer into oblivion, McCarthy returned this week, starring in the show’s cold open.

Watch McCarthy tackle the new Spicey in all of his gum-chewing, Ivanka-promoting, doll-playing glory, and then watch him welcome Jeff Sessions to the podium.
