Melissa McCarthy reprised her role as Sean Spicer on “Saturday Night Live” this time in dressed in an Easter Bunny costume and offering an apology for the White House spokesman calling concentration camps “Holocaust centers,” last week.
“Everybody shut up so I can apologize,” McCarthy yelled to the press. “Yes, you all got your wish this week, didn’t you? Spicy finally made a mistake … I clearly meant to say ‘concentration clubs,’ OK?”
“I would also like you to know that I am sensitive to the fact that they were sent there on trains,” she said. “Hey, at least they didn’t have to fly United, am I right?”
The Hill reports,
McCarthy’s Spicer also brought out a handful of props to use to explain the story of Passover, “aka, the Jewish Easter.”
Spicer last week caused an uproar during a press briefing when he said that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, whose regime gassed millions of Jews during the Holocaust, did not use chemical weapons during World War II.
In that same press briefing he also called concentration camps “Holocaust centers.” Spicer also addressed the United scandal from earlier in the week in which a passenger was violently dragged off a flight.
McCarthy’s bunny suit was a nod to Spicer previously dressing as the Easter Bunny at President George W. Bush’s Easter Egg Roll.
