Sean Spicer, the Trump administration’s former press secretary, is set to do a walk on appearance on Weekend Update, a Saturday Night Live (SNL) summer spinoff show. At least that’s according to an article published by Radar Online. According to the article, Spicer could appear on the show as early as next week’s premiere episode.
“Sean is in hot talks to do a cameo on Weekend Update, the Saturday Night Live summer spin off,” an alleged source told Radar. “And it could happen as soon as this Thursday during the Weekend Update premiere episode.”
Sean Spicer was famously mocked by SNL with comedian Melissa McCarthy depicting him hilariously on the show. This depiction allegedly drove a wedge between Spicer and Donald Trump as the president reportedly thought that it made Spicer look weak because he was being portrayed by a woman.
Sean Spicer also revealed that he thought that a lot of the SNL jokes about him were malicious. In other words, he wasn’t very fond of the portrayal.
“I think that there were parts of it that were funny, but there’s a lot of it that was over the line,” Spicer told Fox News.“It wasn’t funny. It was stupid, or silly, or malicious. But there were some skits on late-night television that I did crack up at.”
Given his opinion on the SNL skits, it doesn’t seem likely that Spicer would want to appear on its spin-off show. Gossip Cop, a site known for debunking celebrity rumors, agrees.

They looked into the story and revealed that Spicer is not in “hot talks” to appear on the show, based on an interview with a high-level SNL production source. As Gossip Cop notes, it’s likely that Radar Online is guessing that SNL would reach out to Spicer because of the success of their skits about him.

According to TMZ, Dancing With The Stars has reached out to Spicer and asked him to be a contestant on the show. But the former White House Press Secretary has declined, citing the fact that he has lots of commitments to attend to in the fall. So, that means that he won’t have time for the rigorous practice sessions that DWTS contestants are expected to go through. It’s probably for the best since a source close to Spicer told TMZ that he’s “not a good dancer.”
What do you think Sean Spicer’s next move will be since he’s no longer the White House press secretary? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
