How Stephen Colbert made Sean Spicer's surprise Emmys joke happen

"Now, I know you think that's a picture of me kissing Sean Spicer", Corden explained. After being introduced by host Stephen Colbert, the 45-year-old - who quit his role in July - poked fun at disproved claims about Mr Trump's inauguration attracting the largest-ever audience. (James Corden thinks this joke is so good that he kissed Sean Spicer for it.) "Anyone ever have that feeling when you get a little drunk and then wake up the next morning and think, 'Oh God, who did I kiss last night?' It's a bit like that". The real Spicer rolled out on a mobile podium, famously used by Melissa McCarthy in her impressions of him on Saturday Night Live. I mean, who did this?

Spicer said he didn't give the president or senior White House staff a heads-up about his appearance, which had been in the works for several days.

Another posted: 'Acting like Sean Spicer is just another amusing guy is the same blurring of entertainment and politics that led to Trump becoming president'.

On Kimmel's show on Wednesday, Spicer made a joke when Kimmel asked whether crowd size was what Spicer had wanted to talk about.

Many non-celebrities also shared their disapproval on Twitter, some viewer lamenting the double standard for 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and this small angry liar.

Just as Trump had been thin-skinned in employing a spokesman to exaggerate the size of his inaugural crowd, this person said, Colbert was mocking himself by using Spicer to overstate the size of his viewership.

At the Television Academy's Emmy after-party in Los Angeles, several gown- and tuxedo-clad revellers stopped to gawk at Spicer.

As we previously reported, Sean Spicer surprised the Emmys audience by appearing at the award show on Sunday.

And according to journalist Chris Gardner of The Hollywood Reporter, who attended the show, Spicer had no lack of fans and attention after the Emmys. Posing for pics, drinking beer, soaking up all attention after onstage appearance. "That's your job. If the president says something, you have to defend them". Thanks for that one, Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
