White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer says he isn’t losing any sleep over Melissa McCarthy’s acerbic impressions of him on Saturday Night Live.
Speaking to CNN’s Jim Acosta at the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, Spicer was asked about McCarthy’s skits but said he rarely watches SNLbecause it’s on past his bedtime.
“I’m usually fast asleep by the time that comes on,” Spicer said. “I’m in bed, get up, go to church next day, and look ahead.”
Spicer’s penchant for gaffes and combative relationship with the press have provided ample fodder for SNL, and McCarthy’s withering portrayals of him — three and counting — have drawn widespread praise.
In any case, Spicer may want to tuck in extra early May 13, when McCarthy is slated to host Saturday Night Live.
