In the video, McCarthy sings “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story. She goes through a full hair, makeup, and costume change before emerging as Sean Spicer as the song comes to a triumphant close.
McCarthy has impersonated Spicer on SNL three times. The first debuted her spot-on imitation of the easily-agitated Press Secretary.
Her most recent performance came after Spicer’s infamous Hitler comments.
This will be the hilarious Melissa McCarthy’s fifth time hosting the show, and her return is highly anticipated for everyone. Everyone, that is, except embattled Press Secretary.
