The hot-tempered White House press secretary has been skewered a couple times by the Spy star, and unfortunately for Sean, he's definitely given the sketch comedy show some prime material to cull from.

After the bombshell firing of FBI director James Comey, the Donald Trump mouthpiece was spotted allegedly hiding in the bushes from reporters, according to the Washington Post.

The Post later clarified that Sean was not "in the bushes" so much as "hidden in the darkness and among the bushes" before briefly briefing reporters.

Whether "in" or "among" shrubbery, the press secretary quickly sparked memes on memes on memes. Here are some of our favorites.

After that and this trailer for Saturday's SNL, we see another amazing viral performance from Melissa on the horizon.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. (in all time zones!) on NBC.
