Melissa McCarthy is back as an angsty, forlorn Sean Spicer on SNL

Melissa McCarthy was spotted riding a White House podium-mobile through New York City in costume as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer earlier this week, and the sad mission of Spicey's ride was revealed when she returned to Saturday Night Live as host.

McCarthy's Spicer came out of the bushes for another round of playing dollies with the White House press corps, but the pressures of the job were clearly weighing on the angsty Spicey, who is facing the awful prospect that President Trump could be lying to him.

After a forlorn ride on the podium-mobile, Spicer finally finds the president. "Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?" Spicey demands. "Only," Trump replies, "since you started working here." Watch the full skit below. Bonnie Kristian
