She then proceeds to berate reporters asking about Trump's decision to fire Comey and whether it was related to the FBI's investigation into possible collusion between his campaign associates and Russian Federation.

The Post initially described the scenario as Spicer standing "in the bushes" but later issued a clarification stating he was "among the bushes". This brings out an angry Spicer, who attacks one of them with a fire extinguisher.

Spicer also said "I like" the contentious daily press briefings.

Screaming at reporters like a high school gym teacher, Spicey was back at the podium once again, answering tough questions about Comey while still managing to brutally berate the press corps.

Unlike previous skits involving Spicer, the show manages to show some empathy towards the embattled press secretary, who at one point is so depressed at the thought of being replaced he plucks a piece of used chewing gum off the ground and shoves it into his mouth.

The press took the opportunity to beg Sanders to take over briefing duties full time.

But when Glenn asks if the President is lying to Spicer - "He wouldn't do that - he's my friend!" The idea that nothing this White House can be believed because Trump's own staff don't know if they are being lied to has reached the pop culture status.

"He wouldn't do that", a tearful McCarthy said.

Mr Trump then begins to flirtatiously tickle Mr Spicer, before commanding the other man to kiss him. "Don't worry", replies Trump, "I'm famous".

Upon finding his boss (played, as always, by Alec Baldwin) hiding out on a golf course in New Jersey, Spicey demanded to know if Trump had told him to say things that weren't true.

Fans were so excited for Melissa McCarthy to host SNL this week after she was spotted driving a podium through the streets of New York City as Sean Spicer earlier this week.

"I've got to find Trump". Period", Spicey insisted. "Then he hired lawyers to agree with him.

"Trump" responded by asking "Spicer" to kiss him, to which he responded, "I can't - I have a wife and took vows".

A sample of the comments flowing into social media about the SNL kiss heard around the world between the sketch comedy's version of Mr. Trump and Spicer can be read below.
