LOL: Melissa McCarthy brought 'Spicey' back to 'SNL' with Kate McKinnon as Jeff Sessions.

The president really isn't going to like this sketch.

According to himself, Donald Trump loves women. What he reportedly does not love, however, is when women play men — especially men he has put into positions of power.

Although Alec Baldwin (and his impeccable Trump impression) was hosting, the most recent cold open on "Saturday Night Live" featured the return of Melissa McCarthy as White House press secretary Sean Spicer — chewing an allotted one piece of gum, using Barbies to explain the Muslim ban, and terrorizing members of the press with a motorized podium. It seemed designed to be everything Trump hates.


Since reports of Trump's distain for McCarthy's Spicer impression broke last week, rumors and casting suggestions have circulated as to which other members of Trump's administration could be played by women on "SNL." Kate McKinnon as newly appointed United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions was an unexpected but totally welcome addition to the roster — and one that undoubtedly got under the president's skin.

Even the part of the briefing that became a QVC-type ad for Ivanka Trump's jewelry and accessories seemed designed to make the president uncomfortable. Not because Ivanka's products were being advertised (Trump's made it clear how he feels about that), but because of who was wearing them.

With McKinnon in costume as Sessions and unable to step into Kellyanne Conway's shoes to recreate her recent breach of ethics, McCarthy's Spicer filled that role, speaking highly of the brand in front of the press, even wearing "Ivanka's" bracelet and heels. If Trump's recent comments on the need for his female employees to "dress like women" are to be believed, the sight of his press secretary being played by a woman wearing heels and a sparkly bracelet must be infuriating to him.

When the most powerful person in the country is a man with a deep need to control his appearance and the appearance of those around him, sometimes the only way to remind him that the citizens don't work for the president — and that the president works for the citizens — is to constantly refuse to comply with his demands. It would be even more hilarious if it weren't so necessary.

Live, from 2017: Women can wear whatever the hell they want.

A disabled dog with no front legs can now run and play thanks to a 12-year-old volunteer at an animal shelter who built her a wheelchair out of Legos.

One-year-old Gracie was dumped at a veterinary clinic when she was a baby. She was covered in maggots and was missing hair under her eyes and on her feet and tail. She was also missing her two front legs due to a birth defect.

The vet reached out to a local rescue called Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue, in Kennesaw, Georgia, who took Gracie in to help her find a new home. The Turley family, who runs the shelter, loved Gracie so much, they decided to adopt her for themselves.

Gracie loves to play with her fur siblings, including a dog who is paralyzed in his hind legs and likes to pull her around, and on who has three legs. While Gracie can get around OK on her own two hind legs, her mom, Tammy, was worried about her getting injured so they enlisted the help of Dylan, 12, a volunteer at the shelter.

Gina Rodriguez doesn't exactly have a great track record when it comes to talking about black representation. There was that time when she (incorrectly) said that Latina actresses are paid less than black actresses. Or that time when she interrupted an interviewer for saying her co-star, Yara Shahidi, was a role model to black women. Or that time when she tried to make "Black Panther" about her. Now, Rodriguez is under heat again, this time for rapping the n-word and being "sorry, not sorry" about it.

Rodriguez posted an Instagram story of herself singing along to "Read or Not" by the Fugees while getting her hair and make-up done. In the short video, she can be seen singing the lyrics, including the n-word, and laughing. Rodriguez deleted the video quickly, but not quick enough. Twitter was, to say the least, not pleased.

There's nothing like a good reunion story to get you misty in the ol' tear ducts. Kate Howard, the managing editor of Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, shared a story of randomly running into the dog she used to foster on Twitter. You know all those dog reunion movies? The ones with names like A Dog's Hope and A Dog's Sloppy Kiss? The ones that make you cry buckets no matter how hard you think your heart is? Well, this is that, but in real life.
