Sean Spicer says ‘SNL’ went ‘over the line’ with him and ‘wasn’t funny’
His review? Thumbs down.
Now that Sean Spicer has resigned as Donald Trump’s press secretary, he’s free to talk about his true feelings regarding Saturday Night Live and Melissa McCarthy’s constant portrayal of him last season.
Spicer’s review: Eh, he didn’t love it so much.
“I think there are a couple parts of it that were funny,” Spicer told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Friday. “But there was a lot of it that was over the line and it wasn’t funny.”
Plenty of people, though, did enjoy McCarthy’s impersonation, which is probably why she kept returning to the show. Along the way, she introduced a motorized podium, showed us Spicer dressed as the Easter Bunny, and displayed Spicer’s emotional side.
Though Spicer admitted to Hannity that he’s a prankster, that he enjoys a good joke, and that he can laugh at himself, he thought SNL was a little too mean.
“It was stupid or silly or malicious,” he said. “But there are some skits that I’ve seen on late night television that I had to crack up at. Sometimes it can be funny. Some of the memes, you have to laugh at yourself. But there are sometimes when it goes from funny to mean.”
Here’s the entire exchange between Spicer and Hannity.
