On Wednesday, she donned her press secretary suit to "I'm So Pretty" as she prepared to host this weekend's Saturday Night Live. On Friday, Melissa McCarthy went full-out Sean Spicer, "from the bushes to the streets" of New York City, riding her Segway-like podium right past CNN's offices, the New York Daily News reports. "Spicer returns!" tweeted Elana Zak, an editor for CNNMoney, showing a short clip of McCarthy cruising down a busy 58th Street. "Spicer Returns" was also apparently the name of the skit McCarthy was filming for SNL, per the director's clapperboard that Zak also snapped a photo of. Bonus promo: McCarthy's Thursday Instagram post showing her decked out as Spicer in a manic GIF captioned: "Straight out da bushes." (More Melissa McCarthy stories.)
