Fox News’s Ed Henry: SNL’s brutal portrayal of Sean Spicer is still ‘gnawing’ at Trump days later
President Donald Trump was reportedly incensed that Saturday Night Live had Melissa McCarthy portray White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer this past weekend, and Fox News’s Ed Henry says it’s still bothering him days later.
Appearing on Fox & Friends on Thursday, Henry says that sources within the White House claim Trump is considering whether to appoint Spicer as his communications director, while finding a new person to serve as press secretary.
“I’m told that SNL skit is still gnawing at the president,” Henry said when explaining Trump’s reluctance to have Spicer continue as press secretary.
Henry goes on to note, however, that Spicer has been getting “high marks” after his “rocky start,” which indicates that the president has made no final decisions yet regarding his role.
Later on Fox & Friends, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway emphasized that Spicer has “the full confidence of the president” and any rumors about him being unhappy with Spicer’s performance so far are false.
