Melissa McCarthy is ready for her closeup.

In a GIF image posted to her Instagram, the 46-year-old actress is shown standing on top of a building in New York City, dressed as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

The video is apparently a promo for McCarthy reprising her role as Spicer on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” this week.

McCarthy lunges toward the camera angrily as if ready to attack with the caption “Straight out da bushes.”

The video came on the heels of a Washington Post story that described Spicer as hiding “in the bushes” after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey this week.

The Post had to later change the story to correctly describe Spicer as being near the bushes talking to his staff.

Nonetheless, McCarthy is set to “come out of the bushes” as Spicer, in a big way on Saturday.

Not content with with just social media, McCarthy took her act on the road, literally, and delighted fans in NYC.

It was the second promo the “Mike & Molly” actress did for the upcoming show.

The first was a video of the actress dancing to “I Feel Pretty” as she transforms from dress wearing actress into the press secretary.

McCarthy’s hilarious portrayals of Spicer have received rave reviews from conservatives and liberals alike.

Spicer got some laughs himself when he embraced the actresses’ parody of him.
