Melissa McCarthy won an Emmy this year for outstanding guest actress in a comedy series, and she couldn’t have done it without a major assist from Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary for President Donald Trump. McCarthy spoofed Spicer and his bizarrely confrontational press briefings on last season of Saturday Night Live. McCarthy’s Spicer was an inferno of rage, insults, and rolling podiums. It was an incredible performance; by far, the biggest downside of Spicer’s resignation in July was the fact that McCarthy wouldn’t get to play ol’ Spicey more on this fall’s season of SNL.

SNL will have missed out on a lifetime of news by the time Season 43 premieres this fall, but Weekend Update is doing its best to catch up. And who better to sum things up than beloved former anchor Tina Fey, who drops by to stress-eat over the weekend’s events, and scream into some cake?
Most everything we’ve heard from SNL Season 43 has involved those leaving the series behind, so there’s finally good news from up top. So long as our national nightmare persists, Alec Baldwin will be back in his golden wig to deliver that bigly famous Trump impression.
