"Saturday Night Live" favorite Melissa McCarthy took to the streets Friday morning in full Spicer attire, driving through Midtown Manhattan on a motorized podium. 

 

"Come on! Watch out!" McCarthy yelled at other drivers as she whizzed by. The stunt followed her viral trolling of Spicer from the NBC rooftop on Thursday, after it was revealed that Spicer hid in (or among) the bushes following President Trump's ouster of FBI director James Comey on Tuesday.

McCarthy will return to "SNL" this Saturday to play the White House Press Secretary, according to a new ad released by NBC on Wednesday.

Will McCarthy play both Sean Spicer and Sarah Huckabee Sanders this week? The principal deputy White House press secretary filled in for Spicer on Wednesday, appearing noticeably less combative, but just as in the dark when it came to Trump's agenda.
