Watch ‘SNL’ go after President Bannon, Donald Trump and Sean Spicer

With special guest Melissa McCarthy as White House spox Sean Spicer.

Jason Del Rey has been a business journalist for 15 years and has covered Amazon, Walmart, and the e-commerce industry for the last decade. He was a senior correspondent at Vox.

It’s only two weeks into Donald Trump’s presidency and “Saturday Night Live” is already handing the president’s desk over to his chief strategist. The next four years should be fun.

With Bannon’s character dressed as the grim reaper and watching over him, Alec Baldwin spoofs Trump in phone conversations with the leaders of Australia, Mexico, Germany and Zimbabwe. Then he gets banished to his little boy’s desk.

The star of the show, though, was actress Melissa McCarthy, impersonating White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Spicer tells the room of journalists that he’s “apologizing on behalf of you, to me, for how you have treated me these last two weeks. And that apology is not accepted!”
