It can’t be easy being Sean Spicer.

Not only can the White House press secretary’s televised daily briefings be testy affairs, he can look forward to being parodied by Melissa McCarthy on “Saturday Night Live” most weekends.

And then a fly landed on his head during Monday’s briefing. On live television. With a phalanx of photographers clicking away.

A reporter tipped Spicer to the unauthorized visitor, and he brushed it away before continuing with the briefing, in which he discussed President Donald Trump’s tax returns, policy on White House visitor logs and other topics.
