Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer impression hits the streets of NYC

Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer impression hits the streets of NYC

Just when you thought this week couldn't get any weird, New Yorkers spotted press secretary Sean Spicer speeding through the streets of Midtown on his podium Friday.

Melissa McCarthy as White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live.

McCarthy (or Spicer) was, of course, filming a sketch for long running comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL).

"Straight out da bushes", McCarthy wrote on Instagram, referencing reports Spicer recently hid in the bushes at the White House to avoid the press this week.




"Spicer got his wish and was soon standing in near darkness between two tall hedges, with more than a dozen reporters closely gathered around him", the Washington Post's account of the incident reads.

See the finished product when McCarthy hosts SNL this weekend. He's also been an instant target for mockery: Reviews of his first appearance in January excoriated everything from his easily disproven assertion that the inauguration was the "most viewed ever" to his ill-fitting suit. "There's a streak of meanness now that they've crossed over to mean". As Spicer, she navigated through midtown traffic on her podium, yelling at people and cars to get out of the way. Come Saturday Night, you'll be seeing Spicey live from NY.

Last month she played Spicey dressed up as the White House Easter bunny. "I feel like my dad and Sean Spicer had a baby, and it's me".

SNL will once again be live coast-to-coast this Saturday. The show's musical guest will be Haim.
