This week's episode of "SNL" is kind of a special one - it's one of a handful shows this season that will be broadcast live coast to coast. "That's good to the last drop!" she remarks in deadpan fashion as the "Saturday Night Live" audience is heard rolling in the aisles.

"The weird thing is I feel I look so much like my dad", she said.

However, the Post then offered a correction, stating that Spicer was "among the bushes" not 'in the bushes'.
