Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer overshadows Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump impersonation on SNL

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” has no shortage of white guys to play White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

But this week producers went outside of their cast roster to fill the role with a guest appearance by Melissa McCarthy – who absolutely crushed it.

McCarthy displayed her commanding comedic presence as a fed-up, unhinged Spicer who scolded reporters in a sketch that stretched well beyond seven minutes.

She didn’t just imitate a real-life person — McCarthy embodied an outrageous character so effectively that, judging by the studio audience’s delayed reaction at her presence, she was unrecognizable at first.

Much better are the 'We're number two!' videos Proffitt found. They better fit the formal definitions of parody, satire and so on. Also more difficult to craft.
