Melissa McCarthy's SNL return as Sean Spicer ends with passionate Trump kiss

It's been a bad week for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

He outlined what could become a new plan to communicate with reporters, citing his dissatisfaction with his own press department after a spate of conflicting reports in the immediate aftermath of FBI Director James Comey's firing.

But while the future of Spicer's career may hang in the balance, there's one surprising contingent of internet users who are desperately hoping he gets to keep his job.

That's when McCarthy-as-Spicer emerged from the bushes to show off the Spicer character viewers are familiar with: one who takes a fire-extinquisher to a "liar liar trousers on fire" reporter and who throws a pillar at another.

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

Instead of a guest appearance, McCarthy hosted this week's show, continuing her now infamous impression of Spicer.

This season's penultimate episode of Saturday Night Live continued with its searing, political satire. After continued questions about Huckabee Sanders, his job security and whether Trump is lying to him, Spicer abruptly ends the press conference and rides his podium up to NY to confront the president. He went through the inner dolls - a dog symbolizing Comey, a villain symbolizing Hillary Clinton, Slimer symbolizing Steve Bannon, and an Easter Bunny symbolizing Jess Sessions.

After a similar joke that implied Trump and Putin were engaging in sexual acts together, "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert came under fire from the public and from Trump himself, who told Time in an interview that Colbert is a "no-talent guy". When Trump responded "because of Russia", Holt spoke into his earpiece "Did I get it?"

But in this sketch, McCarthy's character is back to torment White House reporters, taking a fire extinguisher to the "liar liar trousers on fire" reporter's nether regions and hurls a pillar at another reporter.

Self-doubt rising, McCarthy's Spicer mumbled "he wouldn't do that, he's my friend", before setting off on his motorised podium through NY to confront his employer.

Spicer asks if he's being fired and replaced by his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Trump acknowledged it was before the two embraced, ending the sketch.

Long story short, it ended with Spicer's final kiss. "Let me just put this whole Russian thing to bed once and for all: Trump is innocent", Spicer replied.

The real-life Trump was reportedly upset earlier this year with "SNL" having a woman play his press secretary.

Why? "It's one of my greatest hits, and my fans love when I play the hits", he said.

"Is this like The Godfather where you kiss me and nobody ever sees him again?" he asked worriedly.
