Melissa McCarthy returns to 'SNL' as White House press secretary

ANI  |  New York [USA] 

Just when one thought Sean Spicer's awful 'Hitler' gaffe won't make the headlines anymore, actress Melissa McCarthy came up with 'Saturday Night Live' to reprise her impression of the press secretary.

For the unversed, Spicer, during a briefing on April 11, mistakenly declared that Adolf Hitler did not use gas on his own people and then bizarrely added that Hitler brought the Jews to "Holocaust centers."

However, according to CNN, he later apologised for the verbal debacle in an interview.

McCarthy, in the show, came out in a bunny suit referring to Spicer, who played the Easter Bunny at one of the White House's Easter Egg Roll events, during the George W. Bush administration.

"Everybody shut up so I can apologise. Yes, you all got your wish this week, didn't you? Spicy finally made a mistake ... I clearly meant to say 'concentration clubs,' OK?" McCarthy yelled to the press.

Adding, "I would also like you to know that 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?"

CNN further reports, the iconic late night show created history on Saturday, by airing live in whole of the United States, for the first time.

Typically, SNL airs live at 11:30 p.m. on the East Coast of the US and then is rebroadcasted three hours later for the West Coast, at 11:30 p.m. their time.
