"I wasn't amusing. It was stupid, or silly, or malicious", Spicer told Fox's Sean Hannity.
"It wasn't amusing. It was stupid, or silly, or malicious", he said. But there are some skits that I've seen on late-night television that I had to crack up at, so sometimes it can be amusing.
SNL achieved its highest ratings in six years on the night of McCarthy's first appearance as Spicer. "Sometimes it goes from amusing to mean", Spicer told Hannity during the appearance.
His remarks are more biting than those he'd previously made when asked about McCarthy's portrayal.
An uncharacteristically smiling Spicer can be seen in the Fox News interview here. "I'm fast asleep. I'm in bed, get up, go to church the next day, and look ahead", he said. "I think "Saturday Night Live" is so far over the top that perhaps, you know, they should give equal time to another opinion". The show regularly aired skits satirizing Spicer's habit of chewing gum and regularly arguing with reporters.
"CNN spokesperson says that the network will not seek to hire Sean Spicer as a contributor, unlike other past Trump officials, ' Perlberg announced on Twitter".
Spicer said some late night jokes about him were amusing, but didn't indicate what made him laugh.
SNL bid farewell to Spicer with a short tweet reading "Spicey out" on Friday evening, accompanied by a montage of McCarthy's skits.
He did not divulge too much from their conversation, though he felt it noteworthy that Spicer "did seem to take a strong interest in how I manage to juggle my many platforms: radio, television, print, and public speaking".
