Sean Spicer had a terrible week, but Melissa McCarthy is here to make it all better.
The actress reprised her role as the White House Press Secretary on “Saturday Night Live,” only this time, she played Easter Spicey, the apologizing Easter Bunny.
During a mock-up of the White House’s Easter Egg Roll, McCarthy as Spicer apologized for claiming that Adolf Hitler had never used chemical weapons and for calling concentration camps “Holocaust centers.”
“Everybody shut up so I can apologize,” McCarthy yelled to the press in a white furry suit. “Yes, you all got your wish this week, didn’t you? … I clearly meant to say ‘concentration clubs,’ OK?”
McCarthy also bashed United during the press conference by referencing their recent handling of a bloodied passenger who was dragged off a plane.
“I would also like you to know that I am sensitive to the fact that they were sent there on trains,” she said. “Hey, at least they didn’t have to fly United, am I right?”
McCarthy’s bunny suit was a nod to Spicer’s old gig as the Easter Bunny for President George W. Bush’s Easter Egg Roll, but that wasn’t the only prop she used. The actress pulled out “Veggie Tales” hand puppets to explain Passover and, per usual, most of it was based on alternative facts.
McCarthy closed the skit with a very ominous warning. Then, she destroyed the set.
“Spicey’s got to hippity hop and deliver these eggs,” she said. “And everybody, just eat as much candy as you want because this is probably our last Easter on earth.”
