Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer
It would be an understatement to say that the US desperately needed some comic relief to distract from the dumpster fire that was the state of politics this year. That very necessary relief came in the form of a wig-adorned, business suit-sporting Melissa McCarthy, who posed as now-former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in a series of wildly hilarious Saturday Night Live skits as a surprise special guest. McCarthy didn't hold back while exaggerating her impersonations of Spicer's disgruntled, tense demeanor during press conferences, and each appearance had us cry-laughing. Months after McCarthy first graced SNL viewers with "Spicey," she suited up again for a hysterical treat: she literally rode through the streets of NYC on a motorized press room podium, terrorizing people in traffic along the way. Her podium-riding shtick was part of yet another LOL-worthy SNL skit with an even funnier blooper reel. Thank you, Melissa, for saving us all from our political fatigue. We are forever indebted to you.
