Melissa McCarthy Takes Spicer's Motorized Podium for a Spin in NYC

14 May 2017

Melissa McCarthy is back at it with her impersonation of White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer.

Actress Melissa McCarthy has gone mobile with her farcical impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer, taking it to the streets of Manhattan.

"SNL" teased the show by posting a video - "SNL Host Melissa McCarthy Feels Pretty, Oh So Pretty" - on Twitter that shows her dancing and singing along to the "West Side Story" hit.

We can't wait to see what McCarthy brings to this table (motorized podium?). This is an incontestable fact - just watch a recent episode of "Saturday Night Live" in which McCarthy dons a suit and Spicer-esque combover.

As the news kept getting more ridiculous over the last couple of days, McCarthy couldn't help but add an addendum to that video on her Instagram account Thursday. She first debuted the roving podium in February. Personally, I can't wait to see how they lampoon the return of Spicer to the podium.

SNL and McCarthy aren't alone when it comes to unique motorized pieces of furniture, though. She can be heard yelling "Come on!" at the cars around her. She even dedicated her entire monologue during her fourth hosting gig to the prospect of joining the Five-Timers Club, meaning that the show is likely going to be celebrating the occasion in a big way.

SNL is set to air live Saturday night at 11:30 p.m./8:30 p.m. PT on NBC.

On Friday morning, a few excited CNN staffers started tweeting some silly photos.

She also admitted after seeing a side-by-side of herself as Spicer next to the real press secretary that there's a unusual family resemblance.
