Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer Came Back to 'SNL' Dressed as an Angry Easter Bunny


What a fitting end to Sean Spicer's disastrous week: Melissa McCarthy, dressed as the Easter bunny, roasting the White House press secretary on SNL over the atrocious comments he made about Hitler earlier this week.

(A quick refresher: In a briefing on Tuesday, Spicer said that Hitler didn't use chemical weapons on his own people "in the same way" Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad did. When asked to clarify he stumbled, "He was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing," he stumbled. "I mean, there was clearly ... there was not ... he brought 'em into the Holocaust centers." Finally, he apologized. A lot. It was really bad.)

Melissa McCarthy is perfect as an angry, unhinged, Spicey-as-Easter Bunny (which, by the way, is a role Spicer has taken on before).

Her tutorial describing Passover sounds exactly like something the real Spicey would say.

McCarthy ends the sketch by bulldozing the podium from an Easter egg. She seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.

McCarthy will return to host SNL for the fifth time on May 15, when the show broadcasts live nationwide. Hopefully, this isn't the last we've seen of her incredible Spicey impression just yet.
