Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live as host this weekend for the fifth time - and she also reprised her fan-favorite impersonation of White House press secretary Sean Spicer to poke fun at the recent firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and Spicer's alleged hiding behind a bush during the ensuing press conference.
"Only since you started working here", Trump's Baldwin responds before playfully tickling McCarthy's Spicer and asking for a kiss.
This comes on the heels of a report last week that stated Spicer was hiding in the bushes on White House grounds, avoiding reporters, hours after Donald Trump fired James Comey on Tuesday.
"I know we think this every week, but this week was insane", says Colin Jost, in kicking off Weekend Update.

Trump contradicts White House on reasons for Comey firing
He said the discussions happened in two phone calls and at a dinner in which Comey was asking to keep his job. It's unclear what Trump meant when he tweeted about "tapes" on Friday morning.

His favorite part of the night came, he said, when an open-top tour bus drove by and riders started to cheer. From a van parked across the street, he also projected the entirety of the Emoluments Clause of the U.S.
"Have you ever told me to say things that are untrue?" an out of breath Spicer asks Trump.
Pressed on if Trump is lying to him, Spicer insists "he wouldn't do that, he's my friend". And then I get off, and I have all of these texts, like "Oh, my God, are you looking at what's happening?"
Trump admitted that yes, he had - but tried to assuage Spicey's fears that he would be fired with some seriously awkward sexual advances. Spicer asked Trump - played once again by Alec Baldwin - after tracking him down. "It's ok, I'm famous". In McCarthy's hands, Spicer is a man for whom every utterance warrants an angry exclamation point - a sentiment that would be right at home, you might say, among stereotypical outraged NY drivers.
"Yes", Mr Trump confirmed, before the pair share a passionate embrace and kiss. McCarthy was seen on Friday hitting streets of NY right outside the CNN offices in what appears to be a taping for Saturday's episode.
At one point, the sketch mocked Trump's attempts to distance himself from Russian Federation with a letter from his lawyers. Holt asks. Either way, it was SNL's turn to troll the Trump administration. "Is this all over?" Then, to himself: "Wait, so, did I get him?".
"I am not a crook, OK?" The high point came when Holt got Trump to agree he had obstructed justice.
