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:

Which led to this 'super meme':
The jokes kept on coming:
