Outgoing White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said on Friday that he thought Saturday Night Live went 'over the line' in its satirization of him as portrayed by actress Melissa McCarthy.
Spicer also told Fox News on Friday that he resigned from his post as President Donald Trump’s chief spokesperson because he felt there were ‘too many cooks in the kitchen’.
‘I just thought it was in the best interest of our communications department, of our press organization, to not have too many cooks in the kitchen,’ Spicer told Fox News’ Sean Hannity hours after he made the surprise announcement.
Spicer’s six months as press secretary have been difficult ones. He has been criticized for his testy exchanges with reporters.
He also admitted to being stung by SNL, which lampooned him in a series of skits in which he was played by McCarthy.
'It wasn’t funny,’ Spicer told Hannity of his views on McCarthy’s ‘Spicey’ impression.
Spicer also criticized reporters for being more concerned with 'click bait' rather than 'real news'
