Before Sean Spicer was Press Secretary, he played a different role at the White House: the Easter bunny.

Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at Spicer’s former stint during the Bush Administration as the Easter bunny during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

“This week, for the first time in maybe history, we got to see the Easter bunny apologize for comments about the Holocaust,” Kimmel said before he aired the clip.

“How can you be mad at somebody so cute? It’s impossible,” Kimmel said of Spicer. “He would kill to have that job back right now.”

Earlier this week, Spicer falsely claimed Hitler did not use chemical weapons on his people during World War II. Spicer has since apologized for his comments, which set off widespread backlash.

Kimmel blasted Spicer earlier this week with a clip imagining what went through his head as he made the controversial comments.
