Sean Spicer may not have been crazy about Melissa McCarthy’s Saturday Night Live impression of him, but McCarthy managed to find fans in the hosts of PEN’s Bingeworthy.

“I need Melissa McCarthy back every week to keep doing crazy Sean Spicer screaming at the press,” Touré gushed. “This is her as an actor nailing the performance because SNL sometimes… they’ll do a caricature, they won’t do a spot-on performance. She’s like, ‘I studied Spicer, and this is Spicey.'”

Jessica Shaw agreed, and kept her fingers crossed that McCarthy would appear again, similar to how Alec Baldwin has continued to make appearances as Donald Trump.

“Trump world is so ridiculous that they are ripe for comedy, and I’m glad that SNL and hopefully others will start attacking them,” Touré said. “Not just ridiculous Trump, but also Kellyanne [Conway] and Spicer and Ivanka [Trump] and Jared [Kushner] and all the rest of them, they all deserve mockery.”

To catch the entire discussion on Saturday Night Live, check out the full episode of Bingeworthy, available now, on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to, or download the PEN app on Apple TV, Roku Players, Amazon Fire TV, Xumo, Chromecast, iOS and Android devices.
