Sean Spicer reacts to ‘SNL’ spoof and how he found out about it

Saturday night it was Spicer’s turn — welcome to the club.

Fox News Channel’s Brian Kilmeade tracked down White House press secretary Sean Spicer to get his reaction to “Saturday Night Live’s” spoof of him last weekend.

“We’ve all been through this before,” Kilmeade on “Fox & Friends” Monday. So that was the first reaction he sought of the chief spokesman before Sunday’s game.

Spicer said that he first realized that he’d been spoofed in the “SNL” sketch as he was walking out of church the following morning.

“Looking down — a lot of texts this morning,” he said. “So I had to click on the link and see what it was all about.”

He good-naturedly called it “cute” and “funny,” adding that he’d “much rather talk about the issues that the president is so committed to helping Americans on.”

So the two moved on to the issues.

Spicer said that it was “sad to see a judge go rogue” in holding up President Trump’s executive order placing a 90-day pause on immigration from terror-infused countries.

He was also asked about paid agitators.

“Protesting has become a profession now,” he said, affirming his belief that many of the rioters and protesters today are paid minions.

“We need to call it what it is. It’s not these organic uprisings that we’ve seen for the last several decades,” he said, referring to tea party demonstrations.

“This has become a very paid, astroturf-type movement.”
