Irish American comedians like McCarthy, Baldwin, Colbert, and Maher lead Trump opposition

SNL Fans Are Super Worried About Sean Spicer's Career Watch Melissa McCarthy Take Her Spicer Impression to the Streets on 'SNL'

As expected, Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer faced questions about Russia, James Comey and his own job security in the comedian's latest Saturday Night Live sketch as the White House Press Secretary. The testy Spicer then shoves Sanders away from the podium, taking on questions from the press himself. He gets directed to "a golf course in New Jersey", where Spicey finally gets to confront Trump - and they get locked in what McCarthy's Spicer called a Godfather-style kiss.

Ah, the "Spicey" we all know and love. "Because he TOLD us so!" "Period. And then he hired lawyers to agree with him".

However, it was quickly noticed that Spicer was actually standing outside the building, staring in through the press room window while hiding in the bushes.

"Nothing's going to stop me because I've got the Republicans in the palm of my hand", Baldwin's Trump says before bringing out House speaker Paul Ryan (played by cast member Mikey Day), who offered him two scoops of ice cream, a play on a freakish fact revealed while dining with reporters from Time magazine earlier this week.

Spicer, played by McCarthy, lashed out at the mock press corps over questions about Russian Federation and Trump's firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation direct James Comey.

At that, McCarthy's Spicer loses it, and takes his moving podium to the streets of NY "to find Trump".

The press ask Huckabee if she can take over, and imply that President Trump is set to fire Spicer anyway.

It sometimes seems the opposition to Trump is carried by a cadre of Irish Americans - Colbert, Maher, Baldwin, McCarthy, even Fallon these days.

He rolls through Manhattan traffic via motorized podium, promising to "talk better". Her bullish defenses of the president were delivered without the apparent frustration or stammering we've come to expect from Spicer.

"Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?"

"The only Russian thing is my dolly", Spicey says, holding the biggest doll, President Trump.

"Yes", Baldwin's Trump responded before going in for long, deep kiss. You may have missed it if you didn't watch it closely, but SNL also poked fun at Trump's close ties to Putin with a doll of the shirtless Russian president as well.
