Alec Baldwin has won rave reviews all season long for his portrayal of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, and deservedly so. He was at it again in SNL’s cold open on Saturday putting out a solid performance.

But if you ever wondered which Hollywood actor and/or actress would be best suited to play Press Secretary Sean Spicer, SNL has a most excellent answer for that.

Try Melissa McCarthy.

The Twitter reaction in the minutes after the sketch aired was proof to how well the impression went over.

Think about it this way: In her monologue, host Kristen Stewart accidently dropped a “fuck” on live TV. And thanks to McCarthy, by the time you read this, hardly anybody will have remembered – or cared about – that flub.
