“SNL” Should Cast Only Women As Trump’s Cabinet
After Melissa McCarthy hilariously played White House press secretary Sean Spicer on “Saturday Night Live” last weekend, you can bet that President Donald Trump was upset. He was not necessarily upset at the portrayal but rather that Spicer was played by a woman. It bothered him so much because he “doesn’t like his people to look weak” and felt a woman playing him did. Spicer himself felt that McCarthy could dial back the impression a little.
As a result to Trump’s reaction, people have been excitedly starting to call for more women to play the men in Trump’s administration, hoping to further upset the president and his ego. A longtime critic of the president, Rosie O’Donnell, has already offered to play Trump Advisor Steve Bannon if Lorne Michaels asked her to. But why stop there? These comedians could be perfect if SNL did want an all-female Trump cabinet cast.
Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer
While no one expected to see it when watching SNL this past week, it was exactly what everyone wanted to see. McCarthy was so funny in her role as Spicer, her wig was perfect and the mannerisms were almost identical. You can expect that with the success of the sketch, you will probably see her reprise the role.
Natalie Portman as Jared Kushner
As Trump’s son-in-law and closest advisor, Jared Kushner brings a lot to the role-including his Jewish roots. Israeli actress Natalie Portman could capture Kushner’s good looks and the good Jewish boy mannerisms that make people want to give him a chance.
Rosie O’Donnell as Steve Bannon
The fact that Rosie and Trump already highly dislike each other would only make it worse if he saw her playing his trusted advisor Steve Bannon. Known for her humor and comedic timing, we can’t help but feel as if this would be a great match.
Rachel Dratch as Reince Priebus
We already know how good Rachel Dratch is at throwing herself into any role as we saw from “SNL” and “30 Rock”. We can only imagine how amazing she would be at playing White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus.
Betty White as Jeff Sessions
Everyone loves Betty White so there could be nothing better than having her portray a man that is so controversial. If seeing Betty White play him makes Jeff Sessions dislike her, that will prove he doesn’t like anything.
Ellen DeGeneres as Mike Pence
Vice President Mike Pence is very open about his anti-LGBT views and was very clear that was where he stood even from his days as the Indiana governor. Having the openly-gay DeGeneres play him would be so funny on many levels.
Niecy Nash as Ben Carson
Truthfully, we are not sure if there is anyone who can play Ben Carson like Jay Pharoah did. Yet the weirdly funny Neicy Nash could take the character in a great direction. She is skilled in the strange parts and could pull of Ben Carson well.
