McCarthy's return highly-anticipated return as Spicer involved riding a mechanized podium through the streets of NY, yelling at his possible replacement as she peeled apples onstage, and getting what most foreshadow as the kiss of death from Baldwin's Trump.
Before "Spicey" made an appearance, Aidy Bryant as deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke at a mock press conference in his place - because, of course, he was hiding in the bushes.
After delivering a series of comic responses to questions about President Trump's mental state - one of the best including the use Russian dolls and a Pikachu doll - Spicer then took to the road on a motorised lectern to see Trump, after becoming concerned that he was lying to him. When Spicey finally tracks down his trusted boss and confronts him, things start to take a weird turn. The Comey debacle is just the latest example of how Spicer handled himself poorly while fielding questions on why Trump fired the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief. Trump offers to let him stay for a kiss, like the one in the Godfather, and Spicer reluctantly obliges with a full on make-out scene to close the sketch. "How do we know?"
President Trump's surprise dismissal of Comey left the White House staff scrambling for hours to explain why. But I get two scoops, OK?
After a similar joke that implied Trump and Putin were engaging in sexual acts together, "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert came under fire from the public and from Trump himself, who told Time in an interview that Colbert is a "no-talent guy".
"I do feel sorry for the guy, and I think a lot of people have picked up on that".
McCarthy is due to host the NBC television show on Saturday, when she is expected to revive her portrayal of Spicer as a gum-chewing shouter who berates and threatens journalists for asking probing questions.
