“Saturday Night Live,” take note: Rosie O’Donnell is ready serve.
The former “The View” co-host has seen the responses toportraying White House press secretary Sean Spicer on “Saturday Night Live,” and she has an idea of how the show can up its game.
A Twitter user mentioned to O’Donnell that Donald Trump was reportedly upset about McCarthy’s performance and suggested that O’Donnell take over for Alec Baldwin and impersonate Trump herself. But O’Donnell -- who has had a longstanding antagonistic relationship with the president -- had a different idea.
“I am here to serve,” she wrote. “Alec has Trump, Melissa has Spice. I would need a few days to prepare, so if called I will be ready.”
O’Donnell then responded to a fan’s suggestion that she play Bannon, to which she reiterated, “If called I will serve.”
But before fans get too excited about O’Donnell returning to “SNL” -- which she hosted twice in the ’90s -- she was quick to correct another fan who remarked about “the fact that there is a pretty good chance that Rosie O’Donnell is playing Steve Bannon on ‘SNL.’”
No so fast seemed to be O’Donnell’s message: “That’s an alternative fact,” she wrote. “Someone tweeted it as an idea -- after Melissa was so brilliant ... just a funny idea.”
