In what some critics are calling one of “Saturday Night Live’s” best skits ever, Melissa McCarthy made a surprise appearance on the sketch comedy show as press secretary Sean Spicer.

It took the audience a minute to recognize McCarthy, whose resemblance to Spicer was uncanny. In the skit, which has been trending all Sunday morning on Twitter, McCarthy’s Spicer physically attacks a reporter with the podium, pulls out props to illustrate his points (‘Moose Lamb,”) and locks a CNN reporter in a cage for bad behavior. At one point, he squirts a water gun at a reporter to wash out his filthy mouth.
