EMMYS: Sean Spicer Makes Fun Of Himself And Leftist Twitter Just Can’t Handle It

By  Emily Zanotti

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made a surprise appearance at the 2017 Emmy Awards, pushing Melissa McCarthy’s famous Saturday Night Live faux podium out from backstage to help Stephen Colbert embellish the evening’s viewership numbers.

“This will be the largest audience to witness the Emmys, period — both in person and around the world,” Spicer said, before disappearing as quickly as he popped up, a reference to his first press conference where he valiantly defended President Donald Trump’s contention that his Inauguration audience was the largest in history.

“Melissa McCarthy everybody. Give it up,” Colbert said, jokingly referring to the actress who played Sean Spicer on SNL.

Spicer was clearly poking a little fun at himself — a quick moment of bipartisan humor in what would otherwise be a liberal-dominated night — and the audience loved it, giving Spicer a raucous round of applause for his ten seconds on stage. Certainly it reinforced the “reality show” quality the Trump Administration seems to have embraced, but hey, everyone needs to have a little fun sometimes.

Not everyone was happy to see Sean Spicer out and about, and not cowering in his home, fearful and ashamed of Hollywood leftists. In fact, left-leaning Twitter nearly lost their marbles the moment Sean Spicer appeared from offstage. Calling him a “liar” and branding the joke an attempt at “normalizing” the “criminal” Trump Administration, traumatized leftists melted down across social media.

Journalists were angry.

But uninvited actors were even angrier.

Sean Spicer is not allowed to be funny, you guys. He’s not. He shouldn’t be allowed to be in public. He should be in jail. Also probably unemployed. Maybe shunned. Can we put him on his own island? Please don’t laugh at him. He’s not allowed to be funny. Stop normalizing his abuse, don’t you understand?

The good news for Sean Spicer, of course, is that his doppleganger, Melissa McCarthy, at least, enjoyed the bit.
