See Melissa McCarthy ride motorized podium as Sean Spicer in NYC

Get ready: The actress is hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend

Posted on

Swathes of social media users have captured photos and video footage of Melissa McCarthy in full Sean Spicer attire, riding a motorized version of the White House press secretary’s podium through Midtown Manhattan and up to the doors of the CNN offices. (See the tweets below.)

The early Friday morning stunt comes just one day before the Oscar-nominated McCarthy is set to reprise her iconic performance as Spicer as she hosts the political satire show for the fifth time.

Two days ago, Saturday Night Lives official Twitter account shared a video of McCarthy being transformed into Spicer, while lip-syncing to West Side Story’s “I Feel Pretty” — a clip that’s already received nearly one million views.
