So does this mean all is forgiven?
Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer made it very clear he did not like how Melissa McCarthy skewered him on “Saturday Night Live.”
“Malicious,” he called it.
Outstanding, the Emmy folks called it, nominating McCarthy for Best Comedy Guest Actress.
Never miss a local story.
But now, Us Weekly reports that Spicer “is angling” to be on the show himself. Other reporters have apparently heard the same scuttle.
“He is asking people about getting on — it was his idea,” the magazine’s source says.
So he said no to “Dancing With the Stars” but wants to tango with the peacock?
Did not see that one coming.
Guess if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em?
In the very first interview he gave after resigning as press secretary in July, Spicer bashed the show on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.
Spicer, who called himself a “prankster” who likes a good joke, said parts of McCarthy’s impersonation were funny, “but there’s a lot of it that was over the line. It wasn’t funny. It was stupid, or silly, or malicious.
“But there were some skits on late-night television that I did crack up at. ... You have to have a little bit of a thick skin if you’re going to do this.”
Us Weekly’s source says that Spicer asked someone he knows, who is close to an SNL cast member, to help him snag a spot on the show.
“Yes, he criticized SNL before, but he’s changed his tune,” the source said. “He wants to make a cameo.”
Spicer as Spicer interviewing McCarthy as Spicer, maybe?
Heads are exploding.
