Sean Spicer Says "Of Course" He Regrets Lying About Inauguration Crowd

Spicer's Emmy skit came after he revealed on a late-night talk show last week that it was his job to say whatever Trump told him to say. That was his opinion when he tweeted: I'm not ready to laugh "with" Sean Spicer.

After seeing a clip of Spicer joking that the Emmys had the largest audience ever, Collins said, "I did not find it humorous at all".

The speechwriter who churned out some of George W. Bush's worst lies and most obscene justifications, David "Axis of Evil" Frum, is a Senior Writer at the Atlantic, a CNN contributor, and one of the most beloved and cited commentators by the self-styled anti-Trump "Resistance".

Revisiting his renowned briefing-room debut - an outburst against the media in which he falsely claimed that Trump's Inauguration Day crowd was the largest in history - Spicer basically admitted that he was willing to lie for Trump. These Hollywood phonies kissing up to Sean Spicer are disgusting.

"Ugh NO to Sean Spicer", wrote journalist and author Mark Harris. "Who are we talking about here?!"

On Monday afternoon, the Television Academy released the following statement: "The Television Academy is apolitical. We respect their creative choices". Headlines were everywhere: "James Corden slammed for taking a photo with Sean Spicer at the Emmy Awards"; "People are seriously pissed at James Corden for kissing Sean Spicer at the Emmys"; "James Corden gets heat over Sean Spicer Emmys picture". People compared it to "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon's infamous moment a year ago when he ruffled Trump's hair during an interview.

Colbert also jokingly scolded Emmy voters for not giving Trump an Emmy for 'The Apprentice, ' posing that maybe if he own an Emmy he wouldn't have run for President. "Grace and Frankie" stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin referred to Trump as a "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot".

"I can't thank the president enough for this unbelievable honor, and I'm going ― I will always be grateful for that", Spicer said.

In a few weeks, Spicer will head to Harvard University, where he will be a visiting fellow at the Kennedy School's Institute of Politics.
