On 'SNL,' Sean Spicer hawks Ivanka Trump's wares

On 'SNL,' Sean Spicer hawks Ivanka Trump's wares

The comedian returned to Saturday Night Live to reprise her role as White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

After fumbling through the president's schedule with foreign dignitaries whose names McCarthy's Spicer could not pronounce ("Jesus"), he opened up to questions from the press.

I have a feeling that SNL doesn't mean it to be cute. And I'm probably going to freak if you ask stupid ones.

Meanwhile, Leslie Jones tried her hand at playing Trump, donning a blonde wig and eyebrows for a skit.

Unraveling though he promised not to, Spicer went on to shill Ivanka Trump's accessories and shoes, revealing that he was wearing some and calling department store Nordstrom's decision last week to pull her line "a terrorist act" the press wasn't covering. Politico reported that a top Trump donor said "Trump does not like his people to look weak". And then we're gonna pat her down, and we're gonna read her emails, and if we don't like the answer - which we won't - boom! Calling back to a joke made by Spicer in the cold open, this sketch also features appearances from a shirtless Vladimir Putin (Bennett), Trump's sons (Mikey Day and Alex Moffat), and Steve Bannon as the Grim Reaper.

Around 12:30 a.m., Baldwin finally reprised his Donald Trump character on a sketch of The People's Court.

However, a doll version of dark-haired Moana could not enter the country.

The sketch, once again, brilliantly mocked the press secretary's tumultuous relation with the press. Taking the podium, McKinnon's Sessions said, "We all know there are two kinds of crime: regular and black" before McCarthy's Spicer pushed him away from the microphone and quickly shoved him off stage.

"Elizabeth Warren came at me like a porcupine, but then my friend Mitch McConnell swooped in like an alligator and bit her head off".

Then Kate McKinnon popped up with a brief cameo as new Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

When a reported questioned a White House statistic saying 80% of Chicagoans have been murdered, that's when Spicer whipped out the leaf blower.
