Melissa McCarthy motors through NY dressed as Sean Spicer

Sensing that Huckabee Sanders was targeting his job, McCarthy's "Spicey" reappeared mid-press conference to reassume his prop-filled podium and spew rancor at reporters. But it was all just leadup to the night's main event, the promised appearance that made this episode one of the most anticipated SNLs in recent memory: McCarthy's brilliant Sean Spicer impersonation, which was brought out for a familiar press-room-briefing sketch that quickly transformed into something much more.

Spicer took some heat in real life starting Tuesday when The Washington Post reported the press secretary stood "between two tall hedges" while answering questions about FBI Director James Comey's firing. After he spent several minutes Tuesday night hiding in the bushes from reporters following President Donald Trump's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, White House rumors suggested Trump might be about to ax his top comms chief.

And upon being informed of reports that Trump might fire him, Spicer embarks on his podium to NY and then New Jersey, where he finds Trump at his golf course. After being bothered by all of the questions surrounding his job security, Spicer left the conference on his motorized podium and head to NY to find Trump. Since his infamous first briefing in January in which he lectured reporters on Trump's inauguration crowd size in a weird ritual of favor-currying, Spicer has struggled through a series of painful missteps and meme-worthy gaffes. She eventually finds Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, at a New Jersey golf course. "Sean, come on, I would never do that", says "Trump".

That wasn't the only sketch for Baldwin's Trump. Baldwin's Trump replies, "Only since you started working here". "I fired him because of Russia", Trump/Baldwin said.

But even before that the country was deeply divided, as a wiretapping scandal in 2015 drove a wedge between the two main parties. The decision could bring an end to months of political instability in the Eastern European country.

"Spicey's back, Sarah's out!" She doesn't have your special spice: "salt and pepper and a little bit of sugar". Inside Putin ("Oops", McCarthy says, swiftly tossing that doll aside), follows "Steve Bannon", or Slimer from Ghostbusters. "They're saying you are going to replace me with Sarah". "I'm telling you exactly what President Trump told me", the press secretary said.

It didn't take long for Spicer to emerge from the bushes outside, however, and seize control of the briefing. "It's ok, I'm famous".

"No, no, wait, is that like "The Godfather" when you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?"
