Melissa McCarthy was just spotted driving Sean Spicer’s podium in New York City

Melissa McCarthy was seen driving a podium down a busy New York City street dressed as Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

The comedian is set to host Saturday Night Live this weekend. For the past few months, McCarthy has made special appearances on the program, portraying Spicer in a humorous fashion. As Spicer, McCarthy has used dolls as props, squirted water at journalists, and used her podium to beat-up a member of the press in her comedic skits. She’s even locked up a member of CNN, forcing them to wear a diaper while in a cage at the mock press briefing.

While on 58th Street in New York, Spicer — er, uh, McCarthy dressed as Spicer — drove the famous podium to the amusement of many passerby, waving those in her way to move. Many on social media have since published video of her driving the podium on their accounts.

McCarthy first portrayed Spicer in January, and was an instant smash. She has returned frequently to continue her role for SNL, much to the chagrin of President Donald Trump, who was apparently upset that a woman portrayed a male member of his administration.
