After former White House press secretary Sean Spicer abruptly resigned on Friday, some were dismayed that the resignation could spell the end of SNL’s popular Spicer sketches.
It turns out Spicer himself wasn’t the biggest fan of the sketches.
“I think that there were some parts of it that wer efunny, but there’s a lot of it that was over the line,” Spicer said during his appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity.” “It wasn’t funny. It was stupid, or silly, or malicious.”
SNL actress Melissa McCarthy played Spicer in SNL’s most recent season. Her impersonations were often a hit with fans. Popular skits included her riding a rolling podium, hiding in the bushes and using hand puppets.
Spicer previously addressed the skits in April, telling CNN’s Jim Acosta that he was “usually fast asleep” when SNL aired.
