Sean Spicer responds to Melissa McCarthy's impression of him on Saturday Night Live

Melissa McCarthy thrilled almost everyone with her hilariously spot-on Sean Spicer impression. On Saturday Night Live, in a performance that went instantly viral, McCarthy donned a wig, spewed alternative facts, chomped gum and tore down journalists during a faux press conference. The clip has been viewed more than 12.12 million times on YouTube. Spicer, who serves as President Donald Trump's White House Secretary, has had a rocky few weeks, but instead of reacting with anger at McCarthy's impression of him, he took it in stride. Speaking with Extra, Spicer said that while he thought McCarthy "could dial back" a bit, overall, the show is "funny." One technical pointer for McCarthy re: the gum-chewing: "way too many pieces in there." The gum habit McCarthy adopted is a reference to a profile of the Secretary conducted by The Washington Post in which he claims he chews and swallows about 35 pieces of Orbit cinnamon gum before noon. Yikes! Is that healthy?
