Melissa McCarthy returned to “SNL” as Sean Spicer, telling reporters “I’m going to freak if you ask stupid” questions.

McCarthy’s Spicer started by chewing one giant piece of gum, struggled to pronounce a Central Asian leader’s name, and then took questions. You can watch the full sketch up above.

Bobby Moynihan as the New York Times’ Glenn Thrush kicked off reporter questions, asking about the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals’ ruling against the Trump Administration’s travel ban.

Spicer responded, “We’ll see them in court! ‘The People’s Court!'” And, yeah, we saw Trump show up on “The People’s Court” in another sketch later in the evening.

When Thrush pointed out that “The People’s Court” TV show is not real, Spicer countered that the show opens with a note that all cases that appear on it are, in fact, real.

Spicer also also brought up incidents the pres was under-reporting, including the Bowling Green Massacre (“Not the Kellyanne one, the real one!”)

McCarthy was also joined by Kate McKinnon as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who ended his time at the podium saying, “We all know there are two kinds of crime: Regular, and Black.”

Spicer also dealt with reporters he didn’t like with a leaf blower. “That was me blowing away their dishonesty!”

McCarthy closed the sketch by chasing reporters around with a motorized, mobile podium, playing off last week’s moments of hitting reporters with the podium.
