You’re safe from Rosie O’Donnell, Steve Bannon — at least, for tomorrow.

O’Donnell’s reps confirmed to TheWrap that she will not be appearing as President Trump’s top advisor tomorrow on “Saturday Night Live,” something the Internet has been pining for.

After Melissa McCarthy portrayed White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to rave reviews on last weekend’s episode of the NBC sketch comedy staple, social media collectively cast O’Donnell as Breitbart’s Bannon.

The “A League of Their Own” actress has said she’d love to take the role, going so far as to change her Twitter profile picture to this:


Yes, that’s O’Donnell in full Bannon hair, makeup and wardrobe.

O’Donnell has famously feuded with Trump for years, and has been very critical of his young administration lately. The former “View” co-host has even publicly wondered if the President and First Lady’s son Barron might be autistic.

Of course, that wasn’t the first shot fired: Way back in 2006, the then billionaire businessman called O’Donnell “disgusting” and a “slob” with a “fat, ugly face” — a response to some unkind things she said about Trump on her syndicated talker.

Alec Baldwin, who plays Trump for Lorne Michaels, will host “Saturday Night Live” tomorrow night. It’s currently unclear if McCarthy will reprise her role as Spicer this weekend.
