SNL's Leslie Jones auditions to play Trump

"First of all, I would just like to announce that I am calm now", McCarthy's Spicer shouted, opening her version of the daily White House press briefing.

Her "Spicey" struggled to control himself at the very start of a press conference in the cold open.

A second sketch was afforded to Baldwin's Trump, as the actor switched briefly from his record-breaking hosting duties, to appear in a parody of The People's Court as part of attempts to reinstate his travel ban.

While we didn't get to see Rosie O'Donnell as Steve Bannon, Kate McKinnon made an appearance as Attorney General Jeff Sessions (in addition to bringing back her Conway impression). "The whole thing felt like a nature special". "We all know there are two types of crime: regular and black", Sessions said before being quickly taken off stage.

Spicer, who had come under massive scrutiny in the wake of the biting Saturday Night Live sketch and a series of leaks about how displeased President Trump was with his performance, battled with reporters for 30 minutes - seeking out confrontation wherever he could find it, according to the Washington Post.

The reporter who tried to interject with actual statistics (played by Cecily Strong, daughter of real-life IL newsman Bill Strong) got attacked by Spicer's leafblower. Then he ran down a list of terrorist attacks "you never even write about".

'It is real, ' Spicer says. The Horror in Six Flags. "The slaughter at Fraggle Rock!". Sample: "The night they drove ole' Dixie down". Then the media missed out on writing on light terrorism like Nordstrom removing Ivanka Trump's clothing and accessories.

She then said Ivanka's product's were "high, high quality" before pulling up a sleeve to reveal one of her bangles.

"I'm right, they're wrong", he erupted.

A QVC-like chyron appeared on the screen: "It is lovely. It' s lovely, it's shimmery, it's elegant and at $39.99 it is unbelievably affordable". It's $39.99. It is unbelievable. "What if I do a commercial for Ivanka's shoes live on air?"

"I'm trying to show you I got rage". "I want one day without a CNN alert that scares the hell out of me!" However, "he" was unable to pronounce any of the foreign names.

'That isn't real, ' Thrush replies.

The episode, while devoid of "legendary" skits like those of which Baldwin had been a part of before, was amusing from start to finish - even if you weren't there for the political comedy.

In a faux behind-the-scenes skit about the inner workings of SNL, Leslie Jones imagined playing The Donald after seeing all the praise lavished on McCarthy for her portrayal of Spicer. Nice American girl, back from her dream vacation.
