Melissa McCarthy may have only gotten a choice few minutes in Netflix’s Gilmore Girls reboot last year, but she’s been soaking up the screen-time on Saturday Night Live of late, doing her gender-bending impression of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

CNN recently had a chance to grill Spicer about what he thought about McCarthy’s impression. It’s not the first time Spicer has been asked about the impression; back in February, it was clear that he had seen the impression, and responded in kind.

However, below, when CNN’s Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta caught up with the flesh-and-blood Spicer at the White House’s Easter Egg Roll, he’d changed his tune slightly.
