The biting sketch opened with a press brief led by Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant), who explained that she would be covering for Spicer while he was busy serving in the Navy reserves.
However, it was quickly noticed that Spicer was actually standing outside the building, staring in through the press room window while hiding in the bushes. When a few reporters asked Sanders if she would just take over for Spicer, given her much more pleasant demeanor, Spicer stormed back into the press room to reclaim the podium.
After a few trademark violent "Spicy" outbursts, the press secretary took up the defense of President Donald Trump against accusations that he fired FBI Director James Comey in an effort to obstruct the investigation into Trump's ties to Russia.
"Trump is innocent," she said. "How do we know? Because he told us so. Period. Then he hired lawyers to agree with him. And they’re going to prove it with a certified letter, which you know is the truth, because it costs an extra $2 to have it certified."
However, Spicer soon fell into a disillusioned despair after a number of reporters asked him if he'd ever considered the possibility that Trump has been lying to him and feeding him dishonest information.
Despite Spicer's reluctance to agree, the press secretary decided to go to New York and find out from the President himself whether or not he's been lied to.
