Trump's press secretary, Sean Spicer, has a bit of a reputation for having a short fuse - especially when the press asks questions he might not like.

Actor Melissa McCarthy even ridiculed him for it on Saturday Night Live; where she charged at a reporter with the iconic White House podium.

Melissa MCarthy's impression of Sean Spicer

During a press briefing, instead of getting irritated by a reporter's question, Spicer simply said:

Don't make me make the podium move

Okay, so we're got to give it to Spicer. It was kind of funny.

But not as funny as McCarthy's sketch:

More: Sean Spicer wore a US flag badge upside-down and there's a conspiracy theory why

More: Sean Spicer made a ridiculous Twitter typo and everyone is mocking him
