I have to admit, I was starting to get over Melissa McCarthy and started to find her really annoying. But then she took on Sean Spicer for Saturday Night Live and I remembered why I love her so much. I think a large part of that is because she is also having a ball playing the disgraced White House Press Secretary. Case in point, look at this Boomerang she posted! It is so full of joy, it is making me forget how atrocious this administration truly is. Seriously, it is so addictive, I can’t stop watching it. It is better than St John’s Wort when it comes to making you happy! Don’t you have a yuge smile on your face after watching this!
Over the weekend, we were all blown away by how much Melissa McCarthy looked the White House Press Secretary and today she shared a photo of herself prepping for that spot-on performance on Saturday Night Live. In order to achieve his yuge forehead, she had to put on a bald cap. Here she is in between her real hair and his fake hair. Now that we know what she looks like without any hair on the top of head, I think we can agree she could go bald if she wanted to and still look gorgeous. Not that I think she should do, I just think that she can.
For decades Saturday Night Live has been unwatchable, but for some reason things changed this season. Oh yeah, 45 happened. Someone over at the NBC variety show thought that Alec Baldwin would be perfect as the President and they were right. So right.
Then over the last few days, someone else thought that Melissa McCarthy would be perfect as his Press Secretary and they are Mensa brilliant. Who ever would’ve thought that the star of the all-woman version of Ghostbusters would be so believable as the angry lying man? But she is even better at being him than he is at being himself. So much better. And so accurate.
The show found its calling and I am actually picking up the phone when I see their name on Caller ID. I am not alone because their numbers are going up as they take on the jokes in the White House which is seriously the best thing they have done in this millennium.
Aren’t you loving this season?

Melissa McCarthy shared a video of herself drop kicking Paul Feig in the chest. So is she trying to tell him how she really feels about their movie Ghostbusters? Nope, she is just having some fun and we are having some fun imagining that she was doing that to him because she hates the idea of the movie as much as we do.
Sorry, I just can’t get behind this new Ghostbusters and it is not because it is an all-female version. It’s because it didn’t need to be done.
Just weeks after the first Ghostbusters trailer was named the Most Disliked Movie Trailer on YouTube, Sony Pictures released a second one. On a positive note, it is better. On a negative note, it still sucks.
Although this one feels more like the male version than the first one.
What do you think of it?
