Here's How James Corden Responded to the Sean Spicer Kiss Backlash

Here's How James Corden Responded to the Sean Spicer Kiss Backlash

Sean Spicer speaking during the daily press briefing at the White House in February.

Stephen Colbert had a few surprises up his sleeve while hosting the Emmy Awards - not least of which was a sudden appearance from Sean Spicer.

But she was pleased with Spicer, saying: "I'm very happy my former White House colleague Sean Spicer is a man of good humor".

He also said he didn't tell Trump or anyone else in the White House about his appearance at the Emmys, adding that it was an "attempt to poke a little fun at myself". His work has previously appeared in the American Prospect Online, and he blogs frequently at Sadly, No!

They came up with a concept, and I thought it was kinda amusing.

Based on what Rogen tweeted Tuesday morning, the "Preacher" creator is more likely to call Spicer a "f-cking liar to his face" than kiss it, like fellow comedian James Corden did.

"Ugh NO to Sean Spicer", wrote journalist and author Mark Harris.

On Monday afternoon, the Television Academy released the following statement: "The Television Academy is apolitical. We respect their creative choices".

Fuck James Corden, next time you have a heartfelt monologue on late night, we will all remember you kissing Sean Spicer. During the campaign season, NBC's Jimmy Fallon faced severe backlash for jokingly messing with Trump's hair in an interview.

CBS representatives did not respond for requests for comment about how the idea for Spicer's cameo originated, or questions about whether they had a response to the criticism.

So, shortly after the photo began to make the rounds, Corden - or his publicist, probably- were quizzed on the topic by the New York Times.

Colbert has established bona fides as Donald Trump's tormenter-in-chief: CBS's Late Show star has been network TV's fiercest comedic critic of both candidate and President Trump, serving up nightly takedowns of POTUS and everyone in his administration - including Spicer. He's accepted a fellowship at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
