MELISSA McCarthy has gone into the streets of Manhattan to lampoon White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
The comedian was captured on video on Friday morning riding a motorised podium in mid-town while dressed as Spicer, presumably a sequence that will air when McCarthy hosts the next “Saturday Night Live.”

In the video, McCarthy is seen gliding in the middle of traffic in front of the Time Warner Center, not far from Rockefeller Centre, the longtime home of Saturday Night Live.
NBC would not comment on the video.
Spicer has been a frequent target of McCarthy, who has mocked him in the past in skits where she fires a water gun at the press corps and uses a lectern to ram a journalist.

Spicer has been in the doghouse the past few days after being mocked for hiding in White House bushes while hounded by reporters seeking information about ousted FBI Director James Comey.
His deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has taken his spot behind the real podium.
“Straight out da bushes,” McCarthy wrote in the post, adding the hashtags #snllivecoasttocoast and #snl.
