Walking out dressed as the Easter Bunny, McCarthy’s Spicer addressed some kids on the White House lawn and came out verbally swinging.

“Everybody shut up so I can apologize,” McCarthy’s Spicer roared, referring to controversial comments the press secretary recently made when arguing that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is worse than Adolph Hitler.

“It would be really great if the nitpickers tried to see the big pictures and didn’t solely focus on every little slur and lie I say,” he begged. “That’d be nice!”

“Standing before me are my two top advisers,” Trump said, calling back to his time as the host of the NBC reality series. “There’s been a lot of drama in my house. That’s okay, but one of you has to go. So who gets to stay?”

In the end, Trump ended up sending Bannon back to hell and keeping Kushner on, instructing him to sit at the Oval Office desk and asking him to “fix everything.”
