Sean Spicer Is A 'Melissa McCarthy Impersonator,' According To This Cheeky Toronto Paper

A Toronto newspaper cheekily trolled White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer after he misspoke, calling Canada's Prime Minister "Joe Trudeau."

Spicer made the flub during his Tuesday morning press briefing, when he said, “Yesterday the president ... had an incredibly productive set of meetings and discussions with Prime Minister Joe Trudeau of Canada."

Toronto Metro's front page on Wednesday referred to Spicer as a "Melissa McCarthy impersonator," referencing the actress who parodies the communications director on "Saturday Night Live."

The witty headline was a one-two punch, not only poking fun at Spicer's frequent fumbles but the fact that U.S. President Donald Trump was reportedly upset that a woman lampooned a member of his administration.

He probably won't like a Toronto commuter paper poking fun at him, either.
