Melissa McCarthy Returns To SNL As Sean Spicer, Skewers Trump Travel Ban, Nordstrom Controversy

Melissa McCarthy is back at it again. The comedian returned to Saturday Night Live to reprise her role as White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

There was plenty of material for "Spicey" to tackle this week during the show's eight-minute cold open: the court battle over Trump's Muslim ban, the U.S. President's fight with department store Nordstorm, the fake Bowling Green massacre, and the confirmation of Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

And once again, she mocked Spicer's testy relationship with the press.

But the highlight of the skit might be when "Spicey" touches on Trump's fight with Nordstorm's after the company decided to pull daughter Ivanka Trump's products from its stores.

"That's Nordstorm's loss because these are high, high quality products. In fact I'm wearing one of the bangles right now," McCarthy said. She lifts a high-heeled foot into the air, "And don't even get me started on her shoes."

It's no secret President Trump has seethed at Saturday Night Live's characterization of him and key members of his administration.

Politico also last week that McCarthy's first portrayal of Sean Spicer had unnerved the President. "Trump doesn't like his people to look weak," a top Trump donor told the political site.
