It seems like only a few months ago that former White House press secretary Sean Spicer was refusing to allow cameras into briefings, and seemingly hiding among bushes to avoid journalists. It seems stranger then that after his departure from the White House, he's essentially been allowed off the hook for everything questionable he did previously.
He appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and last night, he gave a speech at the Emmys. Stephen Colbert introduced Spicer by commenting: "What Trump really cares about are ratings, and I certainly hope we achieve that tonight, unfortunately we have no way of knowing how big our audience is. Is there anyone who could say how big our audience is? Sean, do you know?"
But some people on Twitter weren't very happy to see Spicer on the big stage.
We've spent a week litigating how much time Hillary deserves in the public eye, but Sean Spicer is gearing up for fucking carpool karaoke.— Lauren Duca (@laurenduca) September 18, 2017
I've reported in 5 conflict zones, wrote a book and still have trouble getting men to take me seriously but Sean Spicer works at Harvard now— Sulome Anderson (@SulomeAnderson) September 18, 2017
I'm not ready to laugh "with" Sean Spicer. I think he is an evil, opportunistic liar that hurt our country.— Zach Braff (@zachbraff) September 18, 2017
Sean Spicer is an opportunist who regularly lied directly to citizens as the spokesperson for an elected leader. Did I miss the funny bit?— Brian Klaas (@brianklaas) September 18, 2017
Acting like Sean Spicer is just another funny guy is the same blurring of entertainment and politics that led to Trump becoming president.— Murtaza Hussain (@MazMHussain) September 18, 2017
The only acceptable reason to invite Sean Spicer on stage is to have a trap door open up under him— Patrick Monahan (@pattymo) September 18, 2017
Even his supporters didn't like the move.
Just minutes after his cameo, Colbert threw him under the bus saying he played the "Wizard of Lies" as press secretary. Spicer = traitor.— Mark Dice (@MarkDice) September 18, 2017
