Update:
Donald Trump's Press Secretary Sean Spicer has hit back at SNL back following Melissa McCarthy's satirical skit.
McCarthy pretended to be Spicer lashing out at the press and Spicer says he received so many messages, he thought there was a national emergency.
However, like Trump, he's not happy about his portrayal.
Speaking to Extra at the Super Bowl yesterday, Spicer said he found out about the sketch while leaving church on Sunday morning.
"SNL used to be really funny," he said. "There's a streak of meanness now that they've crossed over to mean."
He also said McCarthy needs to "dial back" her performance.
Watch underneath and see if you agree.
Original story:
Australia got a very special shout-out during Saturday Night Live this week when Alec Baldwin recreated the phone call between Donald Trump and Malcolm Turnbull.
Baldwin, who's seriously angered Trump over his impersonations in the past, pretended to be the POTUS calling our PM.
Baldwin hangs up the phone when he finds out about the America/Australia refugee deal – something which allegedly did happen.
However, in his hilarious satirical way, Baldwin ends the call with: "No, no, no. No refugees. America first. Australia sucks. Your reef is failing. Prepare to go to war."
Melissa McCarthy also flexed her comedic muscles, taking on the role of Trump's Press Secretary Sean Spicer at a news conference.
You can watch below. It's a rather interesting take on the Press Secretary, making light of the fact the Trump administration seemingly doesn't want to talk to certain journalists.
