Melissa McCarthy mocks Sean Spicer with podium excursion

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Melissa McCarthy as Shawn Spicer posed for promos, May 9, for Saturday Night Live backstage in New York. McCarthy will host the show this weekend.

NEW YORK >> Melissa McCarthy has gone into the streets of Manhattan to lampoon White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

The comedian was captured on video this morning riding a motorized podium in midtown while dressed as Spicer, presumably a sequence that will air when McCarthy hosts the next “Saturday Night Live.”

In the video, McCarthy is seen gliding in the middle of traffic in front of the Time Warner Center, not far from Rockefeller Center, the longtime home of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

NBC would not comment on the video.

Spicer has been a frequent target of McCarthy, who has mocked him in the past in skits where she fires a water gun at the press corps and uses a lectern to ram a journalist.
