Saturday Night Live got a little "Spicey." Host Melissa McCarthy transformed into press secretary Sean Spicer in a hilarious sketch ripping on rumors that Donald Trump may be considering firing him.

Aidy Bryant opens up the skit as deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders while McCarthy's Spicer hides in the bushes — all part of a naval exercise, of course.

But "Spicey" can't stay away for long. McCarthy's SNL character bursts in to hose down a reporter with a fire extinguisher. After getting grilled about former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey and his Russia investigation, the fake press conference turns to rumors that Huckabee Sanders might replace him.

McCarthy's Spicer ends the press conference and takes off on the podium to confront Trump in New York City. Trump's not at his penthouse, though — he's at a New Jersey golf course.

Alec Baldwin, who appeared in the opening sketch, reprises his role as Trump to sweet-talk McCarthy's Spicer. And in a surprising twist, the two kiss. Watch the full sketch below.
