Actress Melissa McCarthy returned on the TV show “Saturday Night Live” to reprise her impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer, while taking a jibe at his gaffe involving Hitler and the Holocaust. In the show, McCarthy came out in a bunny suit, a reference to Spicer having played the Easter Bunny at one of the White House’s Easter Egg Roll events during the George Bush administration, reports variety.com.
Spicer shocked everyone during a briefing on April 11 while discussing US President Donald Trump’s decision to launch air strikes on Syria in response to President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons on Syrian civilians. McCarthy as Spicer delivered an apology from a podium, but also criticised the press for inflating the incident. “If you guys didn’t focus on every little slur and lie I said,” she said.
