Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer in an Easter Bunny costume

Melissa McCarthy returned to SNL to do another amazing impression of White House spokesperson Sean Spicer. This is her third time playing the role of Sean Spicer. She wore an Easter Bunny costume for a surprise Easter press briefing.

The bunny costume is a nod to a role that Spicer himself has played. He was the Easter Bunny at White House Easter Egg Rolls under the Bush administration. McCarthy as Spicer came out to deliver an apology for Spicer's inaccurate claim that Hitler never gassed his own people like Assad did. The skit also mocked Spicer's use of the term "holocaust centers."

Spicer sent the kids away and gave an unconvincing apology for his Hitler debacle. Spicer also said Trump bombed Syria while eating "the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake America has ever laid eyes on." Spicer had great trouble with Assad's full name, Bashar Hafez al-Assad. We wish McCarthy could do one of these every week. Take a look:
