Spicer: SNL Has Crossed Over From Funny To Mean

Extra reports:

On Sunday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer spoke to “Extra’s” AJ Calloway exclusively at the Super Bowl in Houston. The White House Press Secretary gave his take on Melissa McCarthy’s impression of him in a surprise “SNL” skit, in which McCarthy poked fun at his tightly wound demeanor in press conferences. Explaining that he’d first heard about the sketch while leaving church Sunday morning, Spicer said his texts had been blowing up so much he thought there must be a national emergency.

Spicer told “Extra” exclusively he felt the impression was a little exaggerated. His advice was that McCarthy “needs to slow down on the gum chewing; way too many pieces in there.” Though he thought it was a really “funny” show, he felt that McCarthy “could dial back” a bit.

As for what he thought of Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of the President, Spicer had the same feelings as the Leader of the Free World, calling it “mean.” Spicer said, “Alec has gone from funny to mean, and that’s unfortunate. ‘SNL’ used to be really funny. There’s a streak of meanness now that they’ve crossed over to mean.”

      McCarthy’s deadpan aloofness sent this over the top into genius. Look at that expression. How do you parody a self-parody? LIKE THIS!!

    • Rex

      There’s more truth in an SNL skit than a Spicer/Trump press conference.

    A little exaggerated? He doesn’t understand comedy, does he.
    Just tell him it’s “alternative comedy.”

    They ain’t seen nothing yet. I hope the Alec Baldwin trump special is still on for this Saturday night.

  • David

    Looks like the writers of the SNL have another sketch written for them again.

    • clay

      I thought they did a good job incorporating the Friday evening stay in their “Welcome to America” skit.


      • SelectFromWhere

        I’d forgotten about that–that was brilliant. OTOH, Weekend Update was a little disappointing. But all was overshadowed by Melissa!

  • james1200

    The SNL portrayal of Steve Bannon is the most accurate thing I’ve ever seen.


  • Rex

    A streak of meanness.
    Compared to Trump’s broad swath of meanness.

    At first I read that Spicer found the SNL spoof funny.
    Well, Spicer, how can you be so sensitive when work for the most insensitive orange colored POS to ever hold the White House…well., except for Andrew Jackson…and Richard Nixon…and Ronald Reagan…oh, well

    One of SNL’s best skits in years really hit home apparently.

  • Pollos Hermanos
  • Robert Adams

    I mean, that was funny!

  • clay

    . . . and Spicer knows mean!

  • Natty Enquirer

    Treading the line between funny and mean is called “satire,” you dope. I will admit to growing weary of Baldwin’s performance, which has come to rest too heavily on a few monkey-face expressions. McCarthy has set the bar very, very high.

    • Sam_Handwich

      i get what you’re saying, but a few monkey-faced expressions is basically Trump’s performance, too

    • Daveed_WOW

      I think Baldwin is doing the best he can with a man who has been a self-parody since the 1980s. It’s hard to make fun of someone who is so easy to make fun of. If that makes any sense.

  • SoCalGal20

    SNL’s YouTube video of the Sean Spicer sketch has over 11 million views already and it’s #1 trending on YouTube lol.

    • SelectFromWhere

      I love how, from now until the end of time, when people look up Sean Spicer, that video (and the others sure to follow) will pop up first in Google. I actually had to hunt to find an actual video of him yesterday (to compare the mannerisms).

    • Brian in Valdosta

      That is the moment that my raucous laughter hit overdrive into screaming laughter. I had to play the video again to savour the moment.

  • Gene Perry

    Seriously, doesn’t anybody in the GOP have a sense of humor? It’s SNL, for G-d’s sake. Lighten up.

    • Dirk Prophet

      Has anyone ever seen Trump laugh?

      • Ernest Endevor

        Exactly what Al Franken pointed out. And no, no one has ever seen him laugh.

      • CanuckDon

        I don’t think he’s ever shown a sincere smile.

      • Dubito et cogitare

        Only at his own impressions of the disabled.

      • james1200
        • Dirk Prophet

          I did. It’s the first time I’ve seen him laugh.

          • pj

            so natural and unforced

        • SelectFromWhere

          Was this when he heard George Michael had died?

        • yes b’y

          I can see why he doesn’t fucking laugh, that is downright scary.

  • Tomcat

    Yes, well the Trump administration has gone from funny to DANGEROUS.

  • thom

    Things are looking scary for Germany/the World. The latest polls show that Merkel is headed for defeat. ..

    The White House now talks to Extra!? What an embarrassment.

    • Jerry Kott

      The only thing left to talk to after that is a toilet bowl.

    • clay

      Wasn’t that who had the “grab her by the pussy” tape?

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Here is Spicer’s idea of being funny, without being mean.


    • GayOldLady

      tRump is the most mean spirited person I’ve ever seen. He attacks everyone and anyone who disagrees with him about anything. There’s nothing Baldwin could do impersonating trump that is too mean.

      • jmax

        My father voted for Trump. I asked him, aside from hating Hillary and maybe disagreeing with some of the Democratic Party policies, how could he vote for someone who is obviously such a rotten human being? He had no answer.

        • whollyfool

          This. I can’t understand it.

          • jmax

            If you ever figure it out, please let me know.

      • greenmanTN

        That imitation was straight up nasty. Somehow it even made it worse when his spokespeople tried to claim he wasn’t mocking that reporter, that’s how he mocks ALL reporters!

        Uh-huh. Right.

        You people DO realize we have eyes, right?

        • GayOldLady

          They only believe what trump and fox news tells them to believe. Forget your lying eyes.

          I had a former friend tell me that she watched a video of Hillary where a Secret Service man gave her a shot for her illness on stage at a rally. She actually told me that and I asked her to show me the video. Still waiting!!!

    • clay

      Even at his church, I bet they were laughing behind his back.

    • SelectFromWhere

      Yeah really–I’m sure his feed lit up like crazy when it came on–never mind that he was probably watching it to see how tRump was satirized. And even if, for some reason, he didn’t watch it Saturday, what kind of Press Secretary doesn’t check the news and Twitter first thing, to see what kind of wacko shit his boss wrote overnight?

      He obviously just wanted a chance to say “leaving church”.

  • Sam_Handwich

    i hope the next SNL press conference spoofs the idiotic scripted questions Sphincter takes from skype

    • Gustav2

      From Spokane Fox affiliate:

      “Does the president think he is the bestest ever?”

    • Clive Johnson

      SNL should use the schtick of golden shower prostitutes trying to get into the white house using various disguises and tricks, including showing up as Russian journalists who act very sexy while asking questions of Spicer and draw attention to the yellow kerchiefs in their front pockets.

      • tomfromthenews

        I thought that was REAR pocket? (In my case, the LEFT REAR pocket.)

    • David

      The stuff really does write itself.

  • JT
    • MonochromeMouse

      I hope that in 2020 the Democrat candidate steals the “Make America Great Again” slogan for their campaign, that would drive trump’s team absolutely insane

      • Oh, Parker

        Make America Sane Again should do the trick.

    • JCF

      No, now we’re just trying to make America DECENT again. I’m afraid “greatness” is gone for AT LEAST a generation (Thx, Drumpf voters!).

  • Daveed_WOW

    No sense of humor. Fits right in with Trump White House. Checks out.

  • I don’t know. I really enjoyed Melissa’s portrayal of Spicer, but I thought she underplayed the vein popping a bit. You know. In Spicer’s first press conference where he introduced himself to the press by having a rabid fit and then storming off in a huff without taking questions? I thought Melissa could have used some inflatable pulsing forehead veins to capture the effect.

  • Paula

    Its mean? Compared to you and your kind? Your kind happily referred to President Obama as a ni**er. Michelle Obama was an ape in heels, a transsexual. The Obama girls had to put with the same kind of stuff. So you think they are being mean? Ahhh! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    • Uncle Mark

      You know how bullies often cry like babies when you just give them a mere sample of what they’re putting out. Comedy & political satire don’t really, work unless there is some truth in there. Spicer should think of SNL as a mirror; he shouldn’t look in it if he doesn’t like what he sees, or he needs to change himself and his regime. (Yes, I know he’s hoping to hurt SNL’s ratings with his statements, however we know that there are more anti-Trump folks than pro-Trump, so if anything, this moron is simply helping their ratings.) Let’s face it; it was REALLY hard to make fun of the very competent President we had in 2008-2016…and that President knew how to laugh

  • SoCalGal20

    One of the Patriots says he’s not going to the White House! I’m sure Richard Spencer will be thrilled.

  • StraightGrandmother

    And remember just last Sunday, Kelly Ann Conway saying,

    “We (White House) are walking around with huge seeping gaping wounds?”

    Then she followed up with the Bowling Green Massacre, LOL! Trump et al there is a reason you are being mocked, you are all of you rank amateurs with the exception of Reince Prebius. He is an asshole but at least he has some experience on how to operate.

        And I’m not sure I’ve ever heard an actually funny joke from a conservative.

    • it’s like night and day, on the interwebs. right wing sites continually ban any person who dares to contradict their narratives. lefty sites tolerate and even welcome conservatives and their comments.

      that’s the thing about bubbles. eventually, they burst. i think some of the drumpfies are just coming to understand that.

      • CanuckDon

        Rightwingers really had the upper hand over the past eight years. The one in charge always has to weather the storms of continual criticism. Rightwingism is basically a snarly state of misery and contempt for others so they were in their glory lashing out at Obama and the “libtards” and creating their toxic camaraderie…not to mention that many in that realm got familiar with their computers and commenting online. A great time for them.

        Now they are in the hot seat of public scrutiny. I hate the horror of a Trump administration but stand anxiously watching all of their simplistic ideals and fantasies crush their little black hearts and struggling to save face.

  • Derrick Johns

    What are these Trump people (and the Trump himself) doing? Trying to make us (the opposition) feel guilty. Spicer said that SNL was mean to him. So what? Who is meaner than your damn boss. Oh, please.

  • j.martindale

    Let’s talk “mean.” Mean is separating families by canceling legitimate visas and keeping immigrant parents from joining their wives and children. Mean is the massive eviction of hard working, productive migrant workers to Mexico. Mean is offering the president the opportunity to pass an executive order that permits the freedom to discriminate under the guise of religious freedoms. Mean is grabbing pussy when a woman doesn’t consent. Mean is canceling out consumer protections at EPA and in the Dodd/Frank Bill. Mean is white supremacists in the oval office. You are a fucking bunch of mean spirited,hateful bastards. And SNL just revealed what mean fucks you all are.

I was shocked to find that said program did not show the deference I have decided I deserve! The nerve! I have CONTINUALLY expressed my NEVERENDING need for social dominance! Why do these people not understand!”

      I do not think that this story was at all off topic, SoCalGal20. Very relevant, I think. Spicer and Conway and Bannon and Drumpf, and the rest of their fetid lot, have the wrong message and people are buying into the hate. Thanks for sharing this.

  • rpa

    That’s pretty rich to refer to parody of the most ill-mannered (not to mention unqualified) U. S. President in history as “mean.” In my view, SNL’s parodies of Trump are not mean enough. They could, and should — as a public service — be much sharper. For one, Alec Baldwin’s inherently soft voice never captures the nails-on-chalkboard, perpetual growl in Trump’s voice.

  • David

    This infantile meltdown du jure proves that the protests are working.

    The protests need to not only continue, but grow in size and frequently.

    They really do get under Dump’s thin orange skin.

    Plus, even though Snowflake Spice is a shit person, can you imagine how absolutely horrible his job must be?? Being Dumple- thin-skin’s spokesman must truly be the very worst job on the entire planet.

    I haven’t seen much of Sean Spenser on TV (I’ve read a LOT about him). The other day at the gym, I caught a little bit of one of his press briefings on the TV in the locker room (they have TVs EV-erywhere), and…whoa! The aggression and patronizing attitude…often lecturing in tone. And this was *after* the debacle of his first press briefing. The brilliance of McCarthy’s performance is that, as outrageous and funny as it was, it was still in he ballpark as to how Sean actually behaves.

    >Spicer told “Extra” exclusively he felt the impression was a little exaggerated.

    Umm, Sean, hon, the fact that it was only a LITTLE exaggerated IS EXACTLY the problem.

    Mean=democrats. Disclaimer: The word ‘mean’ does not apply to any republican, right wing or religious group or neo fascist, Nazi or anyone else who would fall into like categories. Conversely, the word ‘good’ is not to be used to describe any left leaning groups, democrats, queers, blacks, Jews, Muslims and other like minded citizens. Example: The good Christian man had no choice but to bash the head of the mean faggot. He was afraid for his life in case the mean deviant made a pass at him. The good redneck judge and the good upstanding church going jury agreed.

    If anything this very funny portrayal of Spicer is looked at by Trumpians like FoxNews as an hilarious tribute. Calls fom him to do and say exactly what she said. I wish this would go away. They’re proud of it and him. I think Trey Parker is genius: you can’t parody parody, you can’t shame them. They have no shame.

    Spicer: You can bash Trump all you want but making fun of me is mean! I want my mommy!

    The best tool against this administration is humour. They absolutely cannot deal with it and it makes them look so childish.

      Reminded me of this:

      “When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.”

      ― John Lennon

    Trump’s next EO is to ban mirrors because they are bias and liars!

    You haven’t begun to see “mean” yet.

      So true. His naivete is just too much.

    Melissa McCarthy is Sean Spicer as to Tina Fey is Sarah Palin. Great comedians who are good at impersonating dumb asses whose claimed to fame is the exhibition of their stupid behavior in the public.

    Get used to it, cupcake.

    Funny–I thought it was the perfect portrayal of what has happened to the executive branch of our country. SNL even got the ill-fitting suit right. Notice how Spicer got in the “I was just leaving church when I heard about it” comment.

    Hey Extra, you might want to dial back the claim of Trump being the Leader of the Free World, that title now belongs to Angela Merkel…at least that’s what the rest of the free world thinks.

    As for the Sphincter and the Trumpen Fuhrer’s opinions about SNL, I can honestly say that SNL has regained a lot of its sting, long thought forgotten since the 70’s. For that, I say “good on ya! and keep up the good work”

  • I thought it was hilarious.

    I’m guessing Sean Sphincter is terrified how much his boss is going to be obsessing over the portrayal of ‘President Bannon’ and Donnie banished to a kiddie version of the Oval Office desk.

    This was some of the best political satire since Chaplin.

    I read earlier the Sean’s college or maybe it was high school newspaper accidentally identified him as Sean Sphincter and that the name dogged him and he hates being called that. Let’s make a note to refer to him from now on as Sean Sphincter.

    A more nuanced and thoughtful assessment than his boss is capable of making, at least.

    The cross over to “mean” occurred on January 20, 2017, not February 4-5 on SNL.

    For one thing, she looked quite a bit better at it than he usually does. She had on a tie, (tied) a suit, a clean, pressed shirt, and her hair was combed. Far, far from the tramp off the street gutter that he normally looks like. Further, her answers and actions were quite a bit more accurate than his —
    I’d say, she did a superlative job. Can’t say that for anything he does.

    Sean Spicer attends church? Christianity’s reputation has now sunk even lower.

  • JCF

    So….RESIGN. And you’ll never be parodied again. Problem solved!
