James Corden speaks out over that Sean Spicer kiss

Sean Spicer helps Stephen Colbert mock Trump at the Emmys: Ex-press secretary turns on his old boss with shock cameo as host ridicules the President as a 'morally corrupt anti-hero'

Although that wasn't the only bit of political fun-poking on the night, as Colbert spared Trump nothing during his opening monologue - at one point telling the audience that he was also an Emmy nominee, for The Apprentice - but had never won.

It turns out, the moment was something Colbert came up with just a few days before the Emmys.

"Uh... I don't think it was probably the..."

The image flashed up on the screen and he joked, "These Hollywood phonies kissing up to Sean Spicer are disgusting". Yet without going into many specifics, he did try to explain that he didn't always agree.

"The message of his presence was not only that we can all laugh at his service and sycophancy in the Trump administration, but that he's willing to laugh with us", wrote Frank Bruni in a column for The New York Times titled "The Shameful Embrace of Sean Spicer at the Emmys". "Whether or not you agree isn't your job".

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

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

As Spicer began to be flooded by celebrities backstage and at Emmy after-parties, some observers on social media took issue with the fact Spicer was making light of his pushing out misinformation while working for Trump.

Liberal commentator Keith Olbermann tweeted that the Emmys lost its credibility by lionizing Spicer. A seemingly rhetorical question with no expected response, Sean Spicer emerged from backstage, accompanied by a podium. While he respects people's opinions, he said people shouldn't take the appearance that seriously.

Corden, 39, who has often criticised Mr Trump on his US TV show, had not responded to the backlash last night.

"Of course I do, absolutely", he said. We didn't have a child past year during the SNL season.

After seeing a clip of Spicer joking that the Emmys had the largest audience ever, Collins said, "I did not find it humorous at all. In truth, I'm disappointed by it as well", he continued.
