Melissa McCarthy is hosting Saturday Night Live for the fifth time tomorrow night, and it looks like she’s bringing her too-perfect impression of White House hide-and-seek enthusiast Sean Spicer. Melissa as Spicey was seen rolling down 59th Street in NYC earlier today on a motorized press podium. I can’t believe nobody tried to hop on the back of that thing and ask how much it would cost to go to LaGuardia.

That’s a surprising amount of road rage coming from Spicey (I expected much more, to be honest). He definitely seems like the type who would steer with his knees just so he could keep one hand free to flip off drivers and the other hand for shoving gum in his mouth.
NBC News doesn’t know what Melissa was doing out there on the street, but they made the obvious assumption it’s probably for a sketch. I wonder if when they were done, Melissa decided to have a couple laughs by staying in costume as Sean Spicer and taking the shoutmobile down to Trump Tower to freak out Melania Trump. No, that would almost be too mean. Melania would lose it if she saw a member of the White House staff cruising up to her penthouse. “Oh nooooo, don’t tell me they’re moving the White House to New York. Shit shit shit. Maybe if I lock the door and duck behind the couch, they won’t think I’m home.”
