Sean Spicer should NOT be remembered for how SNL depicted him but for his lies- My CNN article

Posted on

I wanted to share my new CNN article about when it was announced Friday Sean Spicer was resigning many people from a Democrat in Congress to journalists expressed how much they would miss Melissa McCarthy’s depiction of him on SNL. Do you think that would’ve been the reaction when they heard about Spicer leaving if not for SNL? Instead Im sure the response would’ve been to note the times Spicer lied, made false statements to defend Trump and tried to undermine the media. This is a great lesson on the power of political comedy. The risk is that it can make a political figure seem more likable and sympathetic than they deserve. The hope is SNL and comedians never do that with Donald Trump but instead use comedy to remind people of Trump’s history of hate and misconduct.
