Melissa McCarthy returned to "Saturday Night Live" this week reprising her stint as White House press secretary Sean Spicer, offering a special Easter weekend message dressed in an Easter Bunny costume.
"Everybody shut up so I can apologize," she said to a press room full of kids hunting for Easter Eggs. The largely skit focused on Spicer's controversial comparison of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and Syrian President Bashar Assad last week, for which he repeatedly apologized.
"Yes, you all got your wish this week didn't you, huh? Spicey finally made a mistake," McCarthy said.
McCarthy, in her loud and combative impression of Spicer, assailed the press secretary's critics, who pick up on every gaffe he makes. "It would be really great if the nitpickers could try to see the big picture, and didn't solely focus on every little slur and lie I say," McCarthy said.
In an attempt to make amends or diffuse the tension, McCarthy then made a awkward comparison between the the transport of Jews to concentration camps in the Holocaust and the United passenger who made headlines last week after he was forcibly removed from his overbooked flight which he refused to leave.
"I am sensitive to the fact that they were sent there on trains. Hey at least they didn't have to fly United. Am I right?" Spicer said, before quickly regretting the quip. Dang. That one jumped right out of me.
McCarthy then jumped into a brief, and inaccurate, retelling of Passover using Veggie Tales dolls.
