Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was accosted by the paparazzi at Union Station Monday night. He handled it like a pro and didn’t get uptight about it. At one point he even warned his interviewer so he wouldn’t fall or run into anything.

A new entertainment site, The Blast, ran the clip in which a freelancer paparazzi with Splash News peppered him with questions and couldn’t contain his own laughter.

If SNL called and asked him to host, would he?

“Let’s see. If they ask, we’ll have a conversation,” said Spicer, clearly not ruling the idea out. (The Mirror has heard that Spicer appearing with his impersonator, Melissa McCarthy, is not out of the realm of possibility.)

Does Spicer think McCarthy owes him for winning an Emmy?

“We should share,” he replied.

Did the Prez find the whole thing funny or no?

“I think the President’s got a great sense of humor. …We had a good time.”

What about Spicer — does he think McCarthy’s impersonation of him was funny?

“The first one was funny,” he said pointedly.
