Sean Spicer thought Melissa McCarthy's “Saturday Night Live” sketches and other late-night TV bits were "malicious" during his time as White House press secretary.

But at least he thought a few were funny.

The outgoing member of President Donald Trump's administration appeared on "Hannity" Friday night to address his decision to step down from his position after Trump hired Anthony Scaramucci as the new communications director, and Fox News personality Sean Hannity asked if the constant lampooning was "hard" on Spicer.

"I'm a prankster, so I like a good joke. I think when it's funny, it's funny. You gotta laugh at yourself," he said in the interview (above).

When asked specifically about "SNL," he said, "I think that there were a couple parts of it that were funny, but there’s a lot of it that was over the line. It wasn’t funny. It was stupid, or silly, or malicious."

"But there are some skits that I've seen on late-night television that I had to crack up at," he added. "So sometimes it can be funny, some of the memes you have to laugh at yourself a little bit. But there are times when it goes from funny to mean."

Trump apparently agrees with his comments as he went to Twitter to blame the media for Spicer’s decision.

“Sean Spicer is a wonderful person who took tremendous abuse from the Fake News Media - but his future is bright!”

As “SNL” says farewell to yet another beloved character, watch some of McCarthy’s best moments as the Press Secretary. “Spicey out.”
