James Corden kind of regrets kissing Sean Spicer at the Emmys

Celebrity couple

Oof. So, it's no wonder people are PISSED at the Late Late Show host for planting a kiss on the former press secretary during the Hollywood bash. It was a fun segment, and at one point during their back and forth, Ahmed made a quick political reference. In truth, I'm disappointed as well.

"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". Spicer lampooned his own first White House press conference - about the size of the audience at President Donald Trump's inauguration. He should know the dangers of appearing too chummy: late-night competitor Jimmy Fallon still hasn't recovered from the bad feelings engendered when he tousled Trump's hair when the then-candidate appeared on the "Tonight" show past year. Spicer was basically saying, "Hey guys". And yet, here we are, just two months later, watching the former presidential spokesperson gain mainstream acceptance.

James Corden was papped by Variety's Instagram account cosying up to former Trump henchman / press secretary Sean Spicer with a big kiss. Regardless, Spicer's breezy rematriculation into polite society has had a scripted quality to it - as has the immediate backlash from the left, journalists and various unamused sectors of Twitter railing against the "normalizing" forces of Kimmel, Harvard and all those Spicey-swarming selfie-seekers at the Emmys.

As odd as politics can be, this is genuinely hard to understand.

He then took a somewhat more serious tone.

Based on what Rogen tweeted Tuesday morning, the "Preacher" creator is more likely to call Spicer a "f-cking liar to his face" than kiss it, like fellow comedian James Corden did.

My point is not to begrudge Spicer for an unnervingly successful public-relations campaign.

Trying to make a joke out of consistently and shameless lying to the media on behalf of a sitting president is... well, at absolute best, it's very fucking dark.
