Twitter Fancasts SNL White House Roles After Report on Trump’s Reaction to Melissa McCarthy

A new report on how President Trump reacted to Melissa McCarthy lampooning Sean Spicer on last weekend’s SNL inspired quite a lot of fancasting on Twitter tonight.

You may have noticed that, despite Alec Baldwin returning to play Trump (along with Death as Steve Bannon), the president did not tweet his reaction to the show like he normally does. That sketch was pretty clearly eclipsed by McCarthy’s insane portrayal of a pissed-off Spicer yelling at and literally charging the podium at reporters.

A Politico report tonight says the sketch did not go over well at the White House, and there was one part in particular that bothered Trump:

More than being lampooned as a press secretary who makes up facts, it was Spicer’s portrayal by a woman that was most problematic in the president’s eyes, according to sources close to him.

Well, this detail was all it took to get Twitter to start fancasting other actresses and comediennes who could play certain roles on SNL (you may notice one recurring name in particular):

Rosie O’Donnell had this to say to one of the people throwing out her name:
