Sean Spicer gets the ‘SNL’ treatment; can you tell who’s playing the Press Secretary?

“Saturday Night Live” took a different approach this week.

“SNL” guest cast member Melissa McCarthy depicted an over-the-top version of White House chief spokesman Sean Spicer, who observed that the new administration’s daily press briefings had a “rocky start,” and added that “I mean it in the sense of ‘Rocky’ the movie because I came out here to punch you.”

He also apologized on behalf of the press pool “for how you have treated me these last two weeks,” and added, “That apology is not accepted!”

When a Wall Street Journal reporter asked Spicer if he was OK, he approached her with the lectern and told her if she continues with that line of questioning, he will put her “in the cooler with CNN.”

Because of the controversy surrounding Betsy DeVos, Trump’s pick for Secretary of Education, Spicer introduces her to the press pool to field questions.
