Cutouts of press secretary Sean Spicer in bushes have quickly become a new Internet meme.

The joke began after a report from The Washington Post on Tuesday following President Trump’s stunning decision to fire FBI Director James Comey. 

Spicer did not make any on-camera appearances on Tuesday, but The Post reported that Spicer at one point spent several minutes “hidden in the darkness and among bushes” outside the White House while deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway made TV appearances.

People have responded by printing cardboard cutouts of Spicer and putting them in their garden hedges.

An Ontario resident named Lisa Kadonga first posted a photo of the cutouts on her Facebook page.

“Now you too can have the White House press secretary in - or rather, among - the bushes in your yard,” Kadonga wrote.
