The 14 April show also marked the first SNL was aired live at the same time across the USA in a coast-to-coast broadcast. Which, okay, is what's happening here too, but last night's lackluster Jimmy Fallon-hosted episode didn't have all that much to recommend it as water cooler talk.
Dressed as the Easter Bunny, Spicer appears in front of the press stand and calls for everyone to "shut up" in his typically charming manner.
Both Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend to reprise their roles as President Donald Trump and White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
"Happy Easter, everybody", McCarthy's Spicer says, wrapping up the briefing and climbing into his Easter egg auto.
McCarthy came out in a bunny suit, a reference to Spicer having played the Easter Bunny at one of the White House's Easter Egg Roll events during the George W. Bush administration.

Finally, by the day's end, Spicer was contrite, humbly apologizing to various news outlets. "I clearly meant to say concentration club". "As you all know, President Trump recently bombed Syria while eating the most lovely piece of chocolate cake America has ever laid eyes on". We all make mistakes; you've made mistakes. They were all like, "Boo-hoo, what about the Holocaust Centres.' Yeah I know they're not the holocaust centres". The press secretary is likely too busy putting out fires, like his recent controversial comments stating that Hitler did not use chemical weapons during a Tuesday press conference about Syrian President Bashar Assad.
McCarthy's Spicer also "apologized" for making the remarks about the Holocaust during Passover, or, as he called it, "Jewish Easter".
Honestly, in a contest of which tactic is worse - dropping sarin gas using an airplane or locking people in gas chambers - the answer is neither, but thanks, I guess, to Sean Spicer, for giving us the heinous war crime bracket we didn't know we needed, and, in fact, never wanted. "Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on Jews".
"Okay, just to be super clear as far as the bad guys go, the ranking is, Hitler then Babar al-Ashad [sic], then the pharaoh".
"Happy Easter everybody, and oh by the way, the President is probably gonna bomb North Korea tonight", the spokesperson added as an aside.
