President Trump Reportedly Fuming Over 'SNL' Portrayal of Sean Spicer: He Doesn't Like His People to Look Weak
The president is reportedly upset that Spicer was portrayed by a woman.
Melissa McCarthy’s takedown of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live has reportedly struck a nerve with President Trump.
Trump is upset at Spicer being portrayed by a woman, Politico has reported.
"Trump doesn't like his people to look weak," a source close to the president told the site.
Politico reporter Josh Dawsey told Inside Edition: "Unanimously, people said that he was not amused by Saturday Night Live, which he watches every week."
McCarthy’s spoof of Spicer, Alec Baldwin's portrayal of Trump and Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne Conway has social media on fire over who might appear on SNL as Trump's top aide, the controversial Steve Bannon, who is on the cover of this week's Time magazine.
Rosie O'Donnell is now responding to calls for her to take on the Bannon role.
“Available - if called I will serve!!!” she tweeted.
The president blasted the media again during a meeting with local sheriffs at the White House.
"I understand the total dishonesty of the media better than anybody and I let people know it," he said.
What may have set him off this was a recent report in The New York Times that he spends nights alone at the White House watching cable TV news in a bathrobe.
Spicer denounced the story saying, claiming that the president "doesn’t own a bathrobe."
Citizen sleuths, however, have found decades-old photos of Trump in which he is donning a bathrobe, and posted them on social media.
"We stand by our story," a Times spokesperson told Inside Edition.
