SNL gives Sarah Sanders the ‘full Sean Spicer treatment,’ is anyone digging the ‘Confident’ vibe?

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders received “the full Sean Spicer treatment,” as described by The Washington Post, in this week’s “Saturday Night Live.”

Played by comedian Aidy Bryant, the SNL Sanders fields questions from the press on why she insists there’s no connection between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, given the indictments just handed down by special counsel Robert Mueller.

In responding to the question, the Bryant-played Sanders breaks into a fantasy music video of Demi Lovato’s “Confident.”

Bryant stays true to the original lyrics early on, before she starts ad-libbing as the questions flowed.

“So you say that I’m a puppet, that I must be out of my mind, all your media can stuff it,” she sings at one point in the video, after breaking through a life-size copy of The New York Times.

Just the latest effort by the liberal SNL writers to denigrate President Donald Trump and his administration.

The sketch follows last week’s effort by Los Angeles Times columnist David Horsey to attack Sanders as “the right mouthpiece for a truth-twisting president.”

The Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist was forced to apologize for crossing all lines of decency when he denigrated Sanders for her appearance, describing her as a “slightly chunky soccer mom.”
