At least one member of the White House staff is willing to make light of SNL‘s impression of them.

During a press briefing Friday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer was discussing the newly released jobs report and defending his early morning tweet about the information, which could be a violation of federal rule.

Calling it “a bit silly,” Spicer then made reference to Melissa McCarthy’s unhinged impersonation of him, saying, “I mean, don’t make me make the podium move.”

The joke was met with strong laughter from the room.

Back in February, making her second appearance as Spicer on SNL, McCarthy ended the cold open by terrorizing the assembled reporters with her portable podium.

Watch Spicer’s joke below and the aforementioned skit above.

The original late-night comedy sketch show from the one and only Lorne Micheals.
