Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer on 'Saturday Night Live'

The actress reprised her role as the irritated White House press secretary as she compared the historical Egyptian pharaoh to Hitler.

Melissa McCarthy returned as White House press secretary Sean Spicer on this week's installment of Saturday Night Live.

Dressed in an Easter bunny suit, McCarthy addressed a group of children at the White House hunting eggs.

Referencing Spicer's flub earlier this week, in which he claimed Adolf Hitler never used chemical weapons on his own people and later called concentration camps "Holocaust centers," McCarthy said, "Spicey finally screwed up. You got me ... I clearly meant to say ‘concentration clubs.'

"I am sensitive to the fact that they went there on trains, but at least they didn’t have to fly United,” McCarthy added, poking fun at the United Airlines debacle earlier in the week in which a passenger was beaten and forcibly removed from an aircraft.

McCarthy went on to further apologize to “all the goys out there” for the timing of the incident so close to Passover, or “what I call 'Jewish Easter,'” she added.

She then made a historical demonstration with Veggie Tales dolls about the story of Passover, stating the Egyptian pharaoh was “worse than Hitler,” before catching herself. “Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on Jews,” McCarthy said.
