Some 11.4 million Americans watched Sunday's Emmy awards on television in a ceremony marked by jokes and jibes at U.S. President Donald Trump and where "Saturday Night Live" was the biggest victor. "Even the people who I know don't agree with me politically".

Nearly eight months to the day, Sean Spicer now says he regrets criticizing news reports that accurately showed President Donald Trump's inauguration crowd was significantly smaller than that of President Barack Obama.

On "The View", Joy Behar said that if Spicer and other Trump surrogates apologize to the American people, "then I'll have fun with you, Sean". "Who are we talking about here?" he asked, before the above image flashed on the screen. They came up with a concept, and I thought it was kinda amusing. He said that Robert De Niro, who appeared as Bernie Madoff in the HBO movie Wizard of Lies, had actually been the star of The Sean Spicer Story.

Attempting to provide an explanation, Corden blamed celebratory drinks at the Emmys afterparty. "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". To be fair, everyone was kissing a** last night at the Emmys. Things got more controversial after the show, when one photo in particular surfaced showing The Late Late Show's James Corden leaning in to kiss Spicer on the cheek. "Truly I do. So much so that I'm starting to regret that Carpool Karaoke that I taped with Steve Bannon". "Feels like a mistake today".

Concluding his monologue, Corden admitted that his usual greeting tactic needs to be reevaluated, confessing, "Basically, what I'm saying is, I need to learn how to shake hands!"

Since Sunday night, a lot of people have expressed disgust about the whole situation, calling out both Corden and variety of celebrities who also took photos with Spicer, for the normalization of the former press secretary.
