Melissa McCarthy has finally found the role she was born to play, and it just so happens to be megalomaniac fake yarn-spinner Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Who knew?
She made a surprise guest appearance on SNL to skewer his increasingly nuts press conferences, and it hit a new standard in good.
“I know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start,” she started. “And 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.”

LOL Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer isn’t just good, it’s the only reasonable justification for his existence.

Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer is the 2017 version of Hollywood helping with the war effort.

If I had a kid, I would’ve woken them up during Melissa McCarthy’s Spicer like it were the moon landing.

If Melissa McCarthy doesn’t win an Emmy for that, I will burn Los Angeles to the ground
