How White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer Became A Hilarious Meme

New Delhi:  Sean Spicer's tenure as White House press secretary can perhaps best be described as turbulent. Working for US President Donald Trump's administration, Mr Spicer often ends up making headlines himself. And now he's officially a viral meme.

On Tuesday, President Trump suddenly fired FBI director James Comey. The American press had a lot of questions. And Mr Spicer? Well, as The Washington Post reported, he tried to avoid journalists by standing among some bushes of the White House lawns in the dark.

The paper reports he finally emerged from the bushes and agreed to speak with the media only after the journalists present turned their "lights off" so he couldn't be filmed doing so.

The Internet couldn't get over the idea of Mr Spicer hiding in "a clump of bushes and then behind a tall hedge" and rolled out some hilarious memes.

People couldn't stop comparing the news reports to this popular Homer Simpson GIF:

The jokes kept on coming:
 
This week Melissa McCarthy, who regularly portrays Mr Spicer in comedy sketches, will be hosting Saturday Night Live (SNL). Comedy gold?
