Two months after leaving as White House press secretary, Sean Spicer is a lonely man, writes The Daily Beast. Spicer has serious "credibility issues" say network executives, related to his constant manipulation of the truth for the Trump administration. NBC News said that all the big TV news networks are passing on Spicer as an on-air paid contributor.
After openly scoffing at and "degrading" reporters, Spicer is not exactly the face of responsible journalism and a free press.
Even Spicer's appearance at Sunday night's Emmy awards didn't work out so well, especially after James Corden stirred up a twitter storm after kissing Spicer on the cheek. Variety was the culprit who posted the image on Instagram, inviting major criticism of Corden for 'normalizing' Spicer.
On his CBS 'The Late, Late Show' on Monday night, Corden wasn't in such a loving mood towards Spicey, saying instead that he was disappointed in himself. After some Trump jokes, Corden returned to his self-admonishment, writes Variety.
“According to some reports at the after-party, Spicer was the most popular guy in the room,” he began. “And I just wanna say, I think people are forgetting this man lied to the American people and should not be embraced. These Hollywood phonies kissing up to Spicer are disgusting, I mean, who did this, who are we talking about here?”
Saying that he has a long history of kissing people, Corden concluded by saying, “Basically what I’m saying is, I need to learn how to shake hands.”
