There have not been many highlights of Sean Spicer's tenure.  Well there have been highlights if you are in the media or a fan of just ridiculous commentary.  But not a lot of actually highlights that Sean can look back on and be proud of.  As Saturday Night Live continues to crush the political coverage, I guess Sean Spicer can take solace in the fact that he was covered in one of the best ways.  

A highlight of Sean Spicer's time as White House Press Secretary was Melissa McCarthy's hilarious portrayal of him on Saturday Night Live. Sadly, since Spicer resigned as Press Secretary following the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as White House Communications Director, we've likely seen the last of McCarthy's "Spicey." As a farewell to the character, SNL tweeted out a small montage of Spicer clips:

Fans are regretting the loss of a beloved character:

Some are holding out hope McCarthy will return:

These SNL clips will be remembered as classics:

McCarthy has done Spicer so well and it really is a testament to her versatility in comedy.  She really is among the best and we were all better off that she agreed that it was up to her to play this guy the way she did.  Here is to hoping she is doing her homework on the rest of the staff and maybe even the Senate for her to reappear at a later date.  We'll miss McCarthy's Spicer, but comedy fans need not fear! In the Trump administration, there's always a new subject to lampoon:
