#CBC: « SNL pokes fun at Bannon-Kushner ‘feud’ and Sean Spicer as the Easter bunny – Entertainment »


Saturday Night Live rolled out an Easter theme and a parody contest between Donald Trump’s  son-in-law Jared Kushner and the U.S. president’s chief strategist Steve Bannon, reflecting speculation on tensions over White House roles.

Host Jimmy Fallon portrays Kushner, Mikey Day is the Grim Reaper, or Bannon, and Alec Baldwin returns as Trump in the latest SNL spoof of the the U.S. president’s team, an Apprentice skit, complete with « elimination night. »

Fallon’s quiet, preppy Kushner first appears in the show’s introduction to hear Baldwin’s Trump tell him, « You’ve shown everybody that if you’re born rich and marry my daughter, you can do anything you want. »

Later, the presidential character refers to his « son-in-law » as « my little Kush-ball. »

« Jared, Steve, standing before me are my two top advisers. I only have one photo in my hand. That’s right. Tonight is elimination night. There’s been a lot of drama in the house, and that’s OK, but one of you must go now. »

Spoof of Passover gaffe

Melissa McCarthy returns to play Sean Spicer dressed like the Easter bunny. It’s a nod to Spicer’s appearance in a white bunny suit for the Bush administration’s annual Easter Egg Roll nearly a decade ago.

In a segment SNL described on Facebook as « A very Spicey Easter, » the show’s saucy version of Spicer tries to explain the history of Passover with dolls.

« And then the Jews, these guys pass over, literally. These guys literally float above the Pharaoh, kind of like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dreidel. »

It has been a tough week for the real Spicer, who spent much of it apologizing for a comment he made about Hitler and the Holocaust.

It was an especially bad blunder considering he made it on the first day of Passover, which commemorates the emancipation of the Jewish people from slavery in ancient Egypt.
