White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer Reacts to Melissa McCarthy's 'SNL' Skit

The roles of White House press secretary and communications director are normally filled by two staffers but Spicer has served as both, CNN reported.

Spicer's staff has notified us that we'll have a chance to ask a question via Skype during tomorrow's briefing in Washington, D.C.

On the issue of undocumented migrants, Mr Spicer said that Mr Trump's priority was those who had committed crimes and that the president had "a big heart" and would "walk through this in a very systematic, methodical way". But his administration offers plenty of other characters for the comedy sketch show to turn to when the pouting and hand-gesturing of Alec Baldwin's presidential impression could use a week off.

Several sources told CNN that Spicer was not Trump's first pick for press secretary.

Combative press secretary and Melissa McCarthy's new target Sean Spicer apparently loves Venmo, the money-sending app beloved by cash-averse youths.

Spicer's reaction to "SNL" skits mocking him differs from President Trump's.

"In the sense 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!" His aggressive style, outright lies, and frequent self-contradictions have made Spicer the flawless poster child for the new Trump administration.

One of Mr Trump's top donors told Politico the President "doesn't like his people to look weak", suggesting the caricature of Mr Spicer by a female comedian could damage his standing in the White House.

But Trump also wasn't happy with his portrayal in a sketch from the same episode, which positioned Steve Bannon, played by an actor wearing a Scream mask, as the true commander-in-chief.

Of course, by the time Spicer weighed in, McCarthy's performance had already gone viral to an intensely positive response.
