MCCARTHY RE­TURNS TO SNL AS WHITE HOUSE PRESS SEC­RE­TARY

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Just when one thought Sean Spicer’s Hitler gaffe won’t make the head­lines any­more, Amer­i­can ac­tor Melissa McCarthy (above) came up with Satur­day Night Live (SNL; TV show) to reprise her im­pres­sion of the White House 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.

On SNL, McCarthy 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? I’d also like you to know that I’m sen­si­tive to the fact that they were sent there on trains. Hey, at least, they didn’t have to fly United, am I right?” she said.

CNN re­ports that the show cre­ated his­tory on Satur­day, by air­ing live in whole of the US, for the first time.
