Rosie O'Donnell won't impersonate Bannon on SNL despite her uncanny resemblance


On last Saturday's episode of SNL, Melissa McCarthy impersonated White House spokesperson Sean Spicer. Now, one of President Trump's greatest foes--Rosie O'Donnell is seriously determined to take on Steve Bannon, who, thus far, has only portrayed as the Grim Reaper.

She's already imagining herself in the role. O'Donnell changed her Twitter profile picture showing an uncanny resemblance to Bannon.

It appears as though Rosie fans will have to wait for her debut as Bannon. O'Donnell's publicist confirmed to ABC News on Friday. A rep for "SNL" would only say, "We do not comment on rumored guest appearances."

But that doesn't mean she won't ever impersonate the top adviser. In a tweet, O'Donnell wrote, "I am here to serve...I would need a few days to prepare - so if called - I will be ready."

If SNL decided to cast O'Donnell for the role, it would probably be seen as a slight dig to the 45th commander-in-chief, who has a tumultuous relationship with the comedian. He's noted for his crude descriptions--calling her "ugly," a "pig" and "degenerate." Such comments were frequently discussed during the 2016 presidential debates.

He's called her a "true loser," too.
