Melissa McCarthy takes Sean Spicer’s podium for a test drive
Actress Melissa McCarthy was spotted driving down 58th Street in New York Friday, sporting a new White House-inspired ride for “Saturday Night Live.”
McCarthy, who is hosting “SNL” this weekend, drove down the packed Manhattan street on a motorized version of White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s podium. McCarthy will reprise her popular performance as Spicer this Saturday, and has already released an ad teasing Spicer’s return to the show.
Videos posted on Twitter show McCarthy slowly driving down the street with a line of cars following her. In the video, McCarthy can be heard yelling “come on!” and “watch out!” to passerby and other cars.
McCarthy first debuted the character back in January, and the impression became an instant hit. She has since returned to the show to play the Trump spokesman several times.
