‘Saturday Night Live’ Releases Bloopers of Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer (Watch)

The only thing better than Melissa McCarthy’s “Saturday Night Live” spoof of White House press secretary Sean Spicer? Getting a behind-the-scenes view of her epic portrayal.

“SNL” released hilarious outtakes of McCarthy parading through the streets of New York in full “Spicey” attire, including the signature motorized podium, as he searches for President Donald Trump.

“The good thing is nobody knows we’re shooting. I mean, this has definitely stayed under cover,” McCarthy jokes as crowds form and onlookers yell to get her attention in the streets.

‘Saturday Night Live’: Melissa McCarthy, Alec Baldwin Take Aim at President Trump, Sean Spicer

Spectators shout both “Hey Melissa!” and “Spicey!” as she barrels down the streets and yelps at nearby drivers.

“That’s so awesome,” McCarthy says out of character as she looks up to see people gathering to watch her through office building windows.

The outtakes follow her desperate attempts to track Trump’s whereabouts.

“Trump! Where are you? I know this is where you really live!” she shouts as her podium rides up to Trump Tower in Manhattan.

The original sketch, which aired when McCarthy hosted on May 13, followed McCarthy-as-Spicer looking to confront Trump about rumors of being replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

In the bloopers video, McCarthy grows irritable as her quest to find Trump remains unsuccessful. But Spicey always has a plan: “I just need a couple minutes in a bush to get it together.”

    She is hilarious! Always makes me laugh. I love her!

  4. I have to say McCarthy looks better made up as Spicer than she does in real life.

      You obviously need to be mean by prescription. That was so rude

    • Jessie Flint says:

      She looks better as Spicey than Spicey does….that’s the certainty.

      Brilliant that they are playing Trump’s hand for him (talking up that Spicer is about to get fired, or at least “back-roomed”, like Conway was, heading off Trump’s play, forcing him to defer the decision he is all set to make, so it doesn’t look like he’s just doing SNL’s bidding. Brilliant stuff.

    Is this actually news?

      This is called “Variety”; it’s an entertainment mag/venue. You’re looking for WP or NYT. Pay attention.
