In a flawed yet stunning move, Stephen Colbert welcomed former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to the Emmys 2017 stage on Sunday night.

And to add to the fun, he was using the movable White House podium previously used by Melissa McCarthy when she impersonated him on Saturday Night Live.

"Of course, what really matters to Donald Trump is ratings", Colbert said.

"However you feel about the president, you can't deny that every show was influenced by Donald Trump in some way".

In that one sentence Spicer basically called both himself and the president liars.

"Melissa McCarthy, everybody", Colbert said as Spicer waved to the crowd. (Jury is out on getting Sean Spicer to appear, though.) The man is a genius.
