James Corden Regrets Kissing Sean Spicer at Emmys: 'I'm Disappointed'

Spicer's appearance on the Emmys has been widely criticized by stars and members of the media for possibly normalizing inaccurate statements delivered by the press secretary when he worked for President Trump, including Spicer's infamous boasting about the size of the crowd at Trump's inauguration. To make matters worse, a photo posted to Variety's Instagram account caught late night host James Corden on camera giving Spicer a peck on the cheek at the awards show, which elicited further blowback. CNN reports that Colbert came up with the idea of a cameo just a few days before the ceremony.

"Uh... I don't think it was probably the... But in the spirit of Sean Spicer - no, it isn't", he joked. Yet without going into many specifics, he did try to explain that he didn't always agree.

Recapping the Emmys, Corden said, "The big winners last night were Donald Glover, Hulu and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer". "Whether or not you agree isn't your job".

"This will be the largest audience to witness the Emmys, period - both in person and around the world", he said.

"People are reading too much into this", he said.

Spicer's appearance at the Emmys caused quite a stir on Twitter, with many commentators pointing out it constituted a "normalization" of what many view as Spicer's dishonesty with the American people. According to CNN, the auditorium where the Emmys take place was nearly empty while Spicer practiced his appearance, in the hopes his involvement wouldn't be leaked before the big night. On the other hand, the reason the gag worked is because Sean Spicer lied and lied throughout his entire tenure as Trump's mouthpiece to the press. "I just happened to kiss the biggest one there", Corden said. We didn't have a child previous year during the SNL season. A backlash to Spicer's appearance was quick to materialize, however. 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. "In truth, I'm disappointed by it as well", Corden began.
