Trump takes to Twitter to pan the Emmy ratings

Trump takes to Twitter to pan the Emmy ratings

"I don't think so", Spicer told ABC News when asked if he lied during his White House tenure.

Spicer also addressed his first appearance in the White House press briefing room, when he argued that the crowd sizes at Trump's inauguration were the largest ever - a misstatement that became fodder for his joking appearance at the Emmys. It was indeed surprising that Stephen Colbert would let him roll in for the sake of a "joke" that riffed on the most innocuous of Spicer's many infractions.

"Smartest people of them all are the "DEPLORABLES", he added, a reference to a remark Hillary Clinton made during the 2016 presidential campaign where she said half of Mr. Trump's supporters belong in a "basket of deplorables". If this is what Spicer's post-White House career looks like, expect Trump to be back on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon less than 48 hours after he resigns from office.

Then there was more awkward camera work cutting together reaction shots of celebrities looking shocked and not totally sold on the Spicer's presence.

In my view, the people in charge of making these decisions to normalize and legitimize Sean Spicer should be embarrassed.




I just want to say, I think people are forgetting that this man was lying to the American people and should not be embraced.

As a result of this importance placed on politics, social awareness and the desire for increased diversity in Hollywood, a handful of the nominees and winners this year stood up to speak about women's rights, racial issues, domestic violence and overcoming the iron fist of oppression in all forms and practices. "I'm out having some fun". "The Republican Party? It's not cute", tweeted the extremely vocal comedian Chelsea Handler, who has a talk show on Netflix.

He should know the dangers of appearing too chummy: late-night competitor Jimmy Fallon still hasn't recovered from the bad feelings engendered when he tousled Trump's hair when the then-candidate appeared on the "Tonight" show past year.

A REGRETFUL James Corden compared kissing Sean Spicer to a drunken one night stand. An actor, after all, must dedicate himself to a fiction, make himself believe the lie in order that he might sell it to you. What were the Emmys thinking celebrating this modern day Goebbels, who was the thuggish face of Orwellian doublespeak just moments ago? Strange, since he was so charismatic at the (elevated) podium. At the Emmys on Sunday night, Spicer parodied his previous defense of Trump's claim by joking that the awards show's audience would be larger than ever.
