Melissa McCarthy went in for the kill with her second appearance in a row as White House press secretary Sean Spicer on "SNL," depicting Trump's mouthpiece as a hot-tempered conspiracy theorist who urged everyone to remember the (non-existent) terror attack on Bowling Green.

In the show's cold open, McCarthy used dolls to demonstrate how Trump's Muslim ban should work (blonde Barbie allowed in, brunette Moana sent to Guantanamo Bay) and zipped through the assembled journalists on her motorized podium.

McCarthy even referenced "Extra's" interview with Spicer at the Super Bowl last weekend, saying, "I'm told I should cut back on the gun chewin'."

She then jammed a single, gargantuan stick of gum into her mouth.

Watch the sketch below!

"SNL" later posted a hilarious snap of Melissa in full Spicer drag getting a last-minute touch-up:
