Melissa McCarthy, as "Spicy", rides on podium through midtown

The comedian was captured on video Friday morning riding a motorized podium in midtown while dressed as Spicer, presumably a sequence that will air when McCarthy hosts the next "Saturday Night Live" on May 13.

She's now set to reprise the role with a new skit on this Saturday's SNL.

As evidenced by the public reaction, McCarthy's return is already one of the more hyped SNL episodes in recent memory - and that's saying a lot, given the show's increased media dominance as it continues to satirize President Donald Trump and his administration.

But Stelter wasn't the only one to catch "Spicey" zipping through traffic on 58th Street-not even close. Bless you, Melissa McCarthy, bless you.

Still, the question remains: How can McCarthy top the Easter Sunday special in which she showed up to a press conference in a bunny costume and cracked pastel egg?

McCarthy (or Spicer) was, of course, filming a sketch for long running comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL). And with flawless timing, comedian Melissa McCarthy is bringing back her Sean Spicer impression this weekend.

However, the Post then offered a correction, stating that Spicer was "among the bushes" not 'in the bushes'.

Apple might reveal a new iPad next month
A Boy Genius Report Wednesday showed a leaked screenshot, supposedly of an inventory list for Urban Armor Gear iPad Pro cases. Even though the cases of 10.5-inch iPad Pro will be available by June, Apple is not selling a tablet of that size.

Spicer has mostly shrugged off the running gag, but Trump reportedly hated seeing his spokesman portrayed by a woman.

Now, McCarthy returns to her "SNL" lectern at a time when Spicer appears to be at a low point in his short press secretary tenure.

His deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has taken his spot behind the real podium.

This includes promos that features the actress transforming herself into Spicer to the tune of "I Feel Pretty" from "West Side Story".

Spicer himself returned to the White House Press Briefing Room yesterday after three days away for Navy Reserve duty.

McCarthy wasn't just taking a joyride. "After all, the president has been known to watch television - and sometimes have strong reactions".
