New Yorkers did double-takes and grabbed their cellphones this morning when they saw Melissa McCarthy, dressed as Sean Spicer, cruising the streets on a rolling podium.
Anyone who has seen McCarthy’s “Saturday Night Live” send-up of the White House press secretary recognized the gag.
In skits where she’s briefing the media as Spicer she gets so angry with reporters that she plows right through them with her motorized podium.
McCarthy will host “SNL” on Saturday.

A promo released Wednesday showed McCarthy twirling and lip-synching to “I Feel Pretty” from “West Side Story” as she got into character as Spicer. The video on YouTube had snagged more than 810,000 views by Friday.
The show kept trolling Spicer on Thursday, poking fun at him over reports that he hid from reporters Tuesday night near bushes at the White House after Trump fired FBI director James Comey.
Oh it’s on, boys and girls. Can you smell monster ratings?
