The sketch opened with Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (played by Aidy Bryant) addressing journalists as Sean Spicer cowered in the bushes outside.

NEW YORK (AP) — Melissa McCarthy once again brought comic spice plus Spicer to "Saturday Night Live".

Hollywood heavyweights Melissa McCarthy and Alec Baldwin have made an impressive return to Saturday Night Live, reprising their now infamous roles as Sean Spicer and Donald Trump.

Watch the Saturday Night Live Sean Spicer sketch outtakes after the jump.

Videos of McCarthy in the sketch were leaked on Twitter on Friday, but we never could have imagined how hilarious the finished piece would be. Since his infamous first briefing in January in which he lectured reporters on Trump's inauguration crowd size in a weird ritual of favor-currying, Spicer has struggled through a series of painful missteps and meme-worthy gaffes. When words aren't enough, McCarthy turns to a Russian nesting doll to explain the White House's rank and file.

After continued interrogation on Russian Federation and Comey, an exasperated Spicer told the press corp., "I am being straight with you".

If they're friends, "why does he make you come out here and humiliate yourself every day" and then "why is everyone saying he is about to fire you and replace you with Sarah?" The White House press secretary had been getting ripped in the media after being caught hiding in the bushes. The final dolls depict chief strategist Steve Bannon, shown as a big, green monster, and finally Attorney General Jeff Sessions, depicted as Pikachu.

Cut to a renegade trip to Manhattan, featuring previously recorded footage of McCarthy's Spicer rolling down the street on a mobile podium, looking for Trump to find answers.

"I just need a couple minutes in a bush to get it together". "I promise I'll talk better!" "I'm famous, it's OK".

As for Comey's replacement, Baldwin's Trump vowed that it will be someone "so bonkers you're going to wish like hell it was Judge Judy".
