The Women of SNL Take Aim at Donald Trump and His Cabinet

Melissa McCarthy doubled down on her impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer by returning for this week's Saturday Night Live cold open. However, "he" was unable to pronounce any of the foreign names.

When cast member Bobby Moynihan, playing Thrush, asked about the court decision against Trump's travel ban, a furious Spicey pointed skyward, saying: "You're testing me, big guy".

"I'm calm now", McCarthy's Spicer assured the crowd in the press room set before erupting with anger during the cold open.

"I'm going to have to use my dollies", McCarthy shouted before pulling out a Barbie and explaining she was "OK because she's blonde". Her audition in front of Lorne Michaels goes about as well as you would expect.

"That's Nordstrom's loss, because these are high quality products", McCarthy's Spicer said as he modeled a bangle from the Ivanka Trump line.

Traders Watch list: The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS)
On average, equities research analysts anticipate that Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. will post $19.18 EPS for the current year. The stock as of last trading session moved 73.62% up from its 52 week low and was -4.05% behind its 52 week high.

McKinnon also played a freshly confirmed U.S. attorney general Jeff Sessions-more subversive for extending the run of Trump administration officials portrayed on SNL by women than for the impression itself. Kate McKinnon appeared as Elizabeth Warren on Weekend Update, Baldwin appeared as Donald Trump taking the Ninth Circuit to The People's Court, and McKinnon and Beck Bennett starred in a rather controversial Kellyanne Conway/Jake Tapper parody of Fatal Attraction.

Spicer also pulled out a Barbie doll and said how she'd be allowed into the USA because she's blonde. "Guantanamo Bay", she said of the Moana doll. Yet her performance was short-lived as Sessions got knocked off the lectern after making a racist joke early on: "We all know there are two kinds of crime, regular and black".

If the appeals court won't do what's right, President Trump will see them in court. "But I'm proud to say that 17 is the all-time record". In the 8-minute skit, McCarthy delivers an exaggerated version of Spicer's oftentimes tense press conferences with reporters.

At one point, Jost joked that the country swore in "our new Confederate general - sorry, attorney general", Jeff Sessions.
