The footage followed a teaser released by “SNL” earlier this week in which McCarthy transforms into Spicer while lip-synching “I Feel Pretty” from “West Side Story.”
Additionally, McCarthy posted a motion photo to Instagram on Thursday (below), further teasing her return as the White House press secretary. Needless to say, it looks like Spicey’s going to be making another memorable appearance at Studio 8H.
