Melissa McCarthy Saturday Night Live

Melissa McCarthy is the reigning Queen of the Internet after her spot-on impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer on 'Saturday Night Live' last week. The crazy gum-chewing, aggressive shouting and extremely convincing wig have earned the comedienne over 10.5 million views online.

Melissa McCarthyMelissa McCarthy's impersonation of Sean Spicer is the best thing about SNL

She's best known for starring in the likes of 'Mike and Molly', 'Gilmore Girls' and 'Ghostbusters' but Melissa McCarthy truly outdid herself with her impersonation of Donald Trump's press aide Sean Spicer, who has been frequently mocked by the media ever since he made outrageously false claims about attendance at Trump's presidential inauguation in Washington D.C..

Saturday Night Live Donald Trump

Saturday Night Live’ has suspended one of its writers, Katie Rich, after she tweeted about the new president Donald Trump’s 10 year old son Barron, predicting he will be “this country’s first homeschool shooter”.

Rich, who was hired by NBC’s long-running satirical sketch show at the end of 2013, is believed to have suspended from her post indefinitely, in a decision the programme made shortly after the post she shared on Friday (January 20th), the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration, received a barrage of criticism.

Although she quickly deleted the post and subsequently hid all her social media accounts from public view, her name did not appear in the credits of last weekend’s edition of ‘SNL’.

'Saturday Night Live' Sees Putin Calling Out Donald Trump On Inauguration Crowd Control


Saturday Night Live Donald Trump

'Saturday Night Live' took the opportunity to tear into new president Donald Trump following his official inauguration last week. It wasn't Alec Baldwin doing an impression of the politician that marked the highlight of the show this time, however, but Beck Bennett as Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The comedian played a sexy, topless Putin trying to assure Americans that everything was going to be fine under Trump's leadership especially as he had now 'bought' America. He addressed Donald Trump as a 'friend', ribbing him about the inauguration and mocking his vastly over-exaggerated claim that over 1 million people showed up to the event.

Alec Baldwin Claps Back At Donald Trump After He Slated 'Saturday Night Live'


Donald Trump Alec Baldwin Saturday Night Live

Donald Trump confronted Alec Baldwin online about the comedian's portrayal of him on 'Saturday Night Live', after he returned to the second show since the election. Naturally, Baldwin clapped back with the most cutting response ever. We doubt 'SNL' are even going to try and go easy on him now.

Donald TrumpDonald Trump requests 'equal time' from SNL

The president-elect confessed that he saw 'Saturday Night Live' at the weekend, and blasted it for the 'biased' skits. He then had the nerve to request 'equal time', which means that broadcasters must present political candidates equal opportunities if they so request it. A fair request were the election not over.

'Saturday Night Live' Takes Surprisingly Subtle Stance On Donald Trump's Election


Saturday Night Live Donald Trump

The first episode of 'Saturday Night Live' since the election of Donald Trump was a surprise to all given the subtlety of their response to the situation, especially after weeks of satirising the Republican candidate. It was easy to assume that there would be some kind of uproar, but it seems the creators of the show were to shocked for that.

Donald TrumpDonald Trump isn't slated on 'Saturday Night Live'

This week saw a tribute to Leonard Cohen as well as the defeated Hillary Clinton, as Kate McKinnon performed a sensational piano rendition of 'Hallelujah'. There was a strangely serious tone to the 'sketch' through this hyperbolic depiction of Clinton's loss, and it ended with a not so funny remark but more a positive one: 'I'm not giving up and neither should you'.
