Melissa McCarthy mocks Sean Spicer with motorized podium

A reporter asks Bryant's Sanders, "Can you just do this full-time instead of him?" referring to McCarthy's Spicer, who is seen hiding in bushes outside the briefing room.

It was a cop out and cheap sight gag, as if the show has nothing interesting to say about Trump or Spicer after the week of chaos following James Comey's firing.

"Thank you for having me here, jazzman".

On Friday, Melissa McCarthy was spotted riding around New York City on a podium while dressed as Donald Trump's bumbling press secretary Sean Spicer.

This week's episode of "Saturday Night Live" focused on President Trump and Sean Spicer, the president's press secretary.

Spicer then takes his motorized podium a couple hundred miles north, eventually finding the president at his golf course estate in Bedminster, N.J.

The long-running NBC sketch series has thrived in the ratings thanks in large part to regular appearances by McCarthy as Spicer and Baldwin as President Donald Trump, with this season up 25% in the demo and 31% in total viewers compared to the same point past year. "I took vows", McCarthy replied.

After a spate of guest appearances mocking White House press secretary Sean Spicer in recent weeks, she was back on Saturday's edition of the NBC satire show to preside as host.

Despite a spirited performance, Joe & Jake only managed to finish in 24th place with You're Not Alone. Lucie Jones is prepared to walk on stage in just her trousers to win the "Eurovision Song Contest".

Mr Trump - played by SNL regular Alec Baldwin - reassured Mr Spicer that Ms Sanders will not be replacing him due to the fact she lacks his "special "spice".

"Is this like in Godfather when you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?"

Inside Trump is Comey, depicted as a dog; inside him is Hillary Clinton, depicted as a witch; and inside her is Vladimir Putin-but McCarthy tells reporters not to "look at him", realizing his inclusion was a mistake. Let us know what you think in comments. "I like it. I get off on it..."

Facing questions over Trump's mental state amid a series of tweet storms, McCarthy's Spicer then claimed that "If he's insane, he's insane like a fox with mental problems". From there, we're treated to a Donald Trump nesting doll, with James Comey as Jake the Dog from Adventure Time, Hillary Clinton as Maleficent, Steve Bannon as Slimer, and Jeff Sessions as Pikachu before Spicey travels to NY to talk to her boss.

But confronted with the idea that Trump may have lied to him, fake-Spicer responded, "But he wouldn't do that". The scene ends with McCarthy's Spicer yelling, "I had a good run!"

McCarthy asked "The Livelys" to "watch it from back here". Could McCarthy be doling out even more "Spicey" than usual?

The opening sketch lobbed several zingers at Trump, including a risque reference to Trump's claim to have coined the phrase "priming the pump".
