Alec Baldwin hosted "Saturday Night Live" this weekend for a record 17th time. But instead of opening with Baldwin's Donald Trump impression, the show brought back Melissa McCarthy as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
“First of all, I'd just like to announce I am calm now," reassured "Spicer." "And will remain calm now as long as you sons of ... I'm not going to do that, because that is the old Spicy. And this is the new Spicy.”
McCarthy's "Spicer" fielded questions from the "press corps" on topics ranging from explaining exactly how Trump plans to distinguish terrorists from non-terrorists at U.S. airports, and the real Spicer's recent slip of the tongue claiming there was a terrorist attack in Atlanta, when he claims he meant Orlando.

"Yeah, I said that wrong when I said that, and then you wrote it, which makes you wrong," "Spicer" said, and then went on to rip into the press for all the terrorist attacks they do not report, including “The Bowling Green Massacre — not the Kellyanne one, the real one, the horror in Six Flags, the slaughter at Fraggle Rock, the Night They Drove Old Dixie Down and the light terrorism this week when Nordstrom's decided to stop selling Ivanka Trump's line of clothing and accessories.”
The episode did feature one sketch with Baldwin playing Trump, going to "the People's Court" to appeal the court's decision to stay his travel ban. "Thank you, judge, or what do you call a lady judge, a flight attendant, something like that?” Baldwin's Trump began. “I signed a tremendous travel ban. I didn’t read it, but I signed it.”
