Spicer then walked out on stage to answer, "This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period!"
As Spicer was pushed out on a podium the camera cut to the faces of celebrity audience members who were shocked by the former White House spokesman's appearance.
Trump added, "Smartest people of them all are the 'DEPLORABLES.'" That's a reference to a remark Hillary Clinton made during last year's presidential campaign, when she said half of Trump's supporters belonged in a "basket of deplorables".
Controversy arose for the Trump administration when the president said he had a larger crowd size than President Barack Obama, which, photos showed, was not true.
Former Trump spokesperson Sean Spicer at the Emmys.
"I would definitely say that I wish we had been more consistent from the beginning in terms of the terms that we would use and the goals that we were trying to achieve", Mr Spicer admitted in his interview. "But in the spirit of Sean Spicer - no, it isn't!"
To heck with focusing on actors' and actresses' actual talent - this was the year the Emmys officially turned into another liberal celebration of "diversity".
A REGRETFUL James Corden compared kissing Sean Spicer to a drunken one night stand. "I did that. Where there were mistakes that were made that I got something wrong, I think I've owned that", Spicer said, reflecting on his time in the White House.
"I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night-the worst ever", he tweeted, probably not saddened in the least.
"It's a big club", the late comedian George Carlin once said of the elite in America, "and you ain't in it!"
Isaacs continued: "Three surprising things about him: 1) He comes about up to my nipples [ed. note: Isaacs is a mere 5'11"]; 2) He doesn't think he should hide himself under a rock from shame for the rest of his life; 3) He's deeply unattractive, from the inside out. To me, it is precisely because of Spicer's involvement with Trump that we should never think of him as legitimate or normal again.
A person familiar with the planning of the Emmy program said on Monday that Colbert and his staff regarded Spicer's appearance as both a joke at the expense of Trump, and also a way to poke fun at the event's host, Stephen Colbert.
