Sean Spicer says Melissa McCarthy SNL skit 'cute'
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer thinks actress Melissa McCarthy could dial it back a bit if she reprises her impression of him Saturday Night Live.
McCarthy lampooned Spicer in a sketch that showed him taunting reporters, firing a water gun at one, and using the White House briefing room lectern to ram another.
Spicer told Fox News that the sketch was "was cute" and "funny," but says he'd "rather us be talking about the issues that the president is so committed to helping Americans on."
As for his advice for McCarthy, Spicer has told the entertainment show Extra he thinks she "could dial back" a bit.
He said she, "needs to slow down on the gum chewing."
"SNL used to be really funny," Spicer said.
"There's a streak of meanness now that they've crossed over to mean."
