Melissa McCarthy mocks Sean Spicer with motorized podium

This May 9, 2017 photo provided by NBC Universal shows Melissa McCarthy as Shawn Spicer posing for promos for Saturday Night Live backstage in NY.

McCarthy told The Ellen Degeneres Show in March that a friend at NBC first suggested she play Spicer, and she was amazed (and a little horrified) by how seamlessly the character developed.

Harvey suspended, Stanton hits 2 HRs, Marlins beat Mets 7-0
He traveled a ton just to make it there in time for the game, arriving at about 8:45 am he said on the postgame. Ah, but let's go back to 2015, when Harvey missed a mandatory team workout before the start of the postseason.

So much so, that she chose to break out her much-loved Sean Spicer get up a little bit early. We expect her appearance this week (which inducts her into the five-timer club of "SNL" hosts) to be a hoot, just like the others!

From the looks of it, McCarthy is filming, or rehearsing, an upcoming Spicey sketch for "Saturday Night Live". Following the somewhat inexact news that Spicer had hidden in bushes from reporters following the surprise firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey - in fact, as a correction clarified, he had huddled with his staff "among" the bushes - McCarthy posted a video of herself as Spicey going ballistic with the caption "Straight out da bushes".

Teen's plea for free Wendy's nuggets sets retweet record
Last month, you couldn't open Twitter without someone in your feed retweeting Carter's dream into your line of sight. Wilkerson, who is from Reno, Nevada, told CNN last month he didn't think he would even get a million retweets.

McCarthy has become renowned for her impersonation of Donald Trump's White House press secretary.

New Yorkers rushed to Twitterto commemorate the moment McCarthy was spotted outside of the Manhattan CNN building on 58th Street, churning out tweets, selfies, and video of the event. Because I came out here to punch you! You'll never have to leave a conversation without getting the last word ever again, because your friend had a really good point and then zoom, there went Spicey away on his podium go-kart!

Kane urges Spurs to finish games off after Chelsea defeat
Hugo Lloris believes "everything is possible" in Tottenham's Premier League title run-in with leaders Chelsea . And Chelsea midfielder Fabregas has talked up the importance of Chelsea keeping their focus in the title race.

He has also referred to McCarthy's tendency, when dressed as Spicer, to drive a motorized lectern rapidly toward a reporter who asks an aggravating question. This is part of SNL's new plan of going live coast-to-coast, which started with Fallon's episode.
