Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer. Funny Girl or Mean Girl?

Last week Saturday Night Live brought in an actress from outside of the regular cast to play new White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer. Apparently he wasn’t greatly amused calling the take-off “mean” but much of the nation on both sides of the aisle found it hilarious.

CAST: White House press secretary Sean Spicer (Melissa McCarthy) and Secretary of Education nominee Betsy DeVos (Kate McKinnon) take questions from the press (Bobby Moynihan, Kristen Stewart, Cecily Strong, Vanessa Bayer, Alex Moffat, Mikey Day).

Question: Why is SNL bringing in so many outside stars? What happened to the cast?
