First, we're in the White House press briefing room where principal deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, played by Aidy Bryant plays, says Spicer's out on Navy reserve duty. Or at least he's supposed to be on leave.
Moments later McCarthy took to the podium, pushing Sanders aside and screaming, "Spicey's back, Sarah is out!"
In this sketch, a child's first birthday party is the flawless opportunity for a new mom (Melissa Villasenor) to be introduced into the tradition of choosing her "mom" spirit animal. This elicits a crisis of faith in Spicer that sends him on a quest to find his friend Trump, set to "The Loneliest Boy in New York" by Simon and Garfunkel.
The other reason why building an entire sketch around the idea of making Donald Trump and Sean Spicer kiss worked was because the show started with one of the most genuinely nice segments we've seen on television in a long time. "I should fire him", Baldwin's Trump says. McCarthy asked, to which Reynolds deadpanned, "You invited us". McCarthy as Spicer defended Donald Trump on the ties to Russian Federation scandal.
Saturday Night Live has taken a fresh dig at Sean Spicer after the White House press secretary concealed himself behind a hedge to avoid taking questions from the media earlier this week.

After a trip through New York City, McCarthy's Spicer found Trump, played by Baldwin, at a golf course in New Jersey, where "Saturday Night Live" presented a twist. "I'm famous, it's OK".
The sketch included "Spicer" attacking reporters with fire extinguishers and even structures of the White House itself before the reporters asked if Trump is lying to Spicer.
Game Show - Melissa McCarthy may be the best physical comic to take to Saturday Night Live since Chris Farley (though Molly Shannon comes close too).
"Wait - is this like "The Godfather" where you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?"
That made a great point that Spicer, who still bears responsibility for being complicit, is repeating and defending lies that originate with Trump.
