Melissa McCarthy is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, which will undoubtedly lead to a reprisal or two of her gum-chewing, shit-talking, podium-pounding portrayal of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. It’s been a pretty big week for Spicer, most notably because of his decision to, shortly after the firing of FBI Director James Comey, hide among some bushes rather than perform the essential functions of his job. Afterward, like a scared raccoon, he pledged to answer a few questions, as long as the lights weren’t too bright. You almost feel bad for the guy. He is unwell, and his job is only going to get worse.
In what appeared at first to just be an overzealous McCarthy riding to work in full Spicer makeup, as if she was so eager to recreate the Spicer-shrubbery encounter that she was wearing his clothes all week in anticipation, the actor was spotted cruising around New York City on his podium.
In actuality, they were just filming a scene. There was plenty of fodder for comedy this week, though, and it’s not even over yet! With luck, this was merely a prediction, and the real Spicer will be finally become unmoored from reality completely, wandering our nation in search of facts to angrily refute and Dippin’ Dots to swat out of the hands of unsuspecting children.
