Comedian Pauly Shore struck viral pay dirt with a parody of White House aide Stephen Miller's widely reported exchange with a CNN reporter about a poem on the Statue of Liberty. 

In a "Funny or Die" video posted Friday, footage of CNN reporter Jim Acosta questioning Miller at a news briefing last week about the new GOP immigration legislation that the Trump administration has embraced is edited with clips of Shore impersonating Miller.

"The poem you’re referring to isn’t actually part of the original Statue of Liberty, it was added later. And the whole reason why we put the Statue of Liberty here was to show the rest of the world, here in America, we've got some beautiful babes," Shore said, jokingly, while standing behind a podium designed to resemble the one in the White House press briefing room.

Shore then gives Acosta a "history" lesson about the Statue of Liberty, tying in the plots of popular science fiction movies. 

"In the year 2000, did you know a mutant known as Wolverine scaled the Statue of Liberty in a climactic showdown with Sabretooth?" Shore asked, referring to the "X-Men" character.

"In the f---ing 1980s when the 'Ghostbusters' brought the Lady Liberty to life with the power of ectoplasm, was that violating, in your opinion, Jim Acosta, the Statue of Liberty's law of the land?" Shore continued.

Shore ultimately chalks up the back-and-forth between Miller and Acosta as a "bromance."

"I'm sorry things got a little heated here between me and Jim. It is just a little bromance, nothing to write home about," Shore concluded.
