This would be the best casting of all time!!
And after Trump was reportedly “rattled” over McCarthy’s portrayal of the White House gum aficionado, an all-too-perfect casting opportunity presented itself for the next high-profile role: Rosie O’Donnell as Steve Bannon!!
In a string of tweets on Monday night, the comedienne nominated herself to play Trump’s key advisor — and we honestly couldn’t think of anyone better!
The suggestion came up after Politico reported Trump was irked over Spicer looking “weak” in the sketch and that he was played by a woman, prompting many Twitter users to suggest an SNL appearance from the OG Trump nemesis.
And the former talk show host was more than game for the role, responding on Twitter:
YAS! Do it, Rosie!!!
So far, Bannon has been portrayed on SNL as a straight up grim reaper, which means an actual high-profile guest role is still in the cards.
And to have Trump’s longtime enemy play the man we all know is pulling the strings in the Oval Office is just too good of an opportunity to pass up!
What are you waiting for, Lorne Michaels!?
