Disgraced former White House gerbil Sean Spicer continued his post-firing image rehab tour on Sunday night by performing a bit about number-fudging at The Emmys. Rachel Bloom’s face kind of said it all for the people who were unimpressed with Sean Spicer’s attempt at being cute. After Sean Spicer performed his”Ain’t I a stinker?” routine he stuck around backstage and went to after-parties and took pictures with celebrities. James Corden was one such celebrity who really got a kick out of meeting and greeting Spicey. But now, James Corden is really sorry for acting like a fangirl on Emmy night.
This all happened after Variety Instagrammed a picture of James Corden snuggling Sean Spicer and leaning in for a kiss.
People on the internet weren’t feeling it at all. James Corden must have been busy screaming karaoke in his car when Jimmy Fallon was giggling over Trump’s hair, otherwise James might have known that people don’t respond well that sort of stuff.
After dodging internet tomatoes all day, James addressed the situation during his opening monologue on The Late Late Show last night. According to James, he was drunk and is very disappointed in himself.
“Anyone ever have that feeling when you get a little drunk and then wake up the next morning and think, ‘Oh God, who did I kiss last night?’ It’s a bit like that. Some people have been disappointed by this photo. In truth, I’m disappointed by it as well.
” am, I have been reading a lot of harsh comments on Twitter today, and I hear you loud and clear. Truly, I do.”
At least Sean Spicer still has a famous friend in Alec Baldwin, who defended Spicer’s appearance at the Emmys, saying he and Spicer have both done jobs people haven’t respected or admired.
Sean Spicer and James Corden are a mismatched friendship. What do they have in common besides perfectly round faces? Alec Baldwin is a much better option. I can already picture them making arrangements to spend Friday night on the phone together, leaving hostile voice mail messages filled with obscenities and wild accusations.
