Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump has become a semi-frequent staple on Saturday Night Live—and a constant source of anger for Trump—but this past weekend it was Melissa McCarthy’s take on Press Secretary Sean Spicer that truly shined. Now Spicer himself has some thoughts about the viral take on his SNL counterpart.
While he found SNL to be “funny,” he found McCarthy’s impression of him to be somewhat exaggerated and thought that perhaps she “could dial back,” he told Extra Sunday at the Super Bowl. Spicer critiqued how McCarthy chewed gum, a reference to a tidbit he revealed in a previous interview, and said that she “needs to slow down on the gum chewing; way too many pieces in there.”
He also talked about SNL with Fox and Friends and revealed that he found out about the sketch after he walked out of church earlier Sunday. He seemed to take it in good fun but wanted to focus on more important things.
“It was cute, it’s funny,” he said. “I’d rather us talk about the issues the president’s so committed to helping Americans on, but um, you know, it’s part of American culture.”
But even though he’s OK with how SNL portrayed him, he wasn’t as happy with the show’s take on his boss.
“Alec has gone from funny to mean, and that’s unfortunate,” Spicer told Extra. “SNL used to be really funny. There’s a streak of meanness now that they’ve crossed over to mean.”
