Melissa McCarthy Spins The Facts As Sean Spicer On 'Saturday Night Live'

She deserves an Oscar for this performance.

Melissa McCarthy paid a surprise visit to studio 8H last night to take on the role of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for “Saturday Night Live.” To put it plainly, she nailed it.

The actress channeled an angry Spicer, spewing “alternative facts” and firing insults at the journalists in the room. 

“Before we begin, I know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start,” McCarthy as Spicer shouted. “When I say ‘rocky start,’ I mean it in the sense of ‘Rocky’ the movie, because I came out here to punch you! In the face!” 

McCarthy was spot-on throughout the whole sketch, never missing a cue and never breaking character. How she managed to remain serious, we have no idea. Surely, though, President Donald Trump and/or Spicer will have something to say about it. 

Watch the whole sketch above. Trust us, it’s worth it.
