But the counterargument said that Spicer was simply telling a joking, "admitting to his and Trump's dishonesty through comedy", according to CNN. "I've not knowingly done anything to [lie] - no".

At the end of comedian Stephen Colbert's opening monologue, he jokingly asked if someone could ever predict how large this year's Emmy audience could be. "Should you do again I will report to the appropriate authorities".

That's when Corden aired the photo of him kissing Spicer's cheek and quipped, "I know you think that is a picture of me kissing Sean Spicer. But to watch some of the personal attacks - questioning my integrity, questioning what my intentions were - I think that was really over the top".

After the surprise appearance, Spicer said he had not given the president or senior White House staff a heads up about his skit, which had been in the works for several days.

"He was very supportive".

Sean Spicer has said he "doesn't think" he lied to the American people in his role as White House Press Secretary.

He later answered no when asked if Trump ever asked him to "lie or manipulate the truth".

Spicer added that many people viewed the inauguration online versus in person, saying, "There are more social platforms, more online platforms to view things "than existed eight years ago".

TV Networks in the US won't hire Sean Spicer due to a "lack of credibility".

Many claimed Trump's ex-employee, who quit after financier Anthony Scaramucci was brought in as White House communications director, should not have been given a platform at the popular awards show.

"The big winners last night were Donald Glover, Hulu and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer". That comes from Mike Allen over at Axios, who heard the factoid from Spicer's former colleagues.

In January, Spicer told reporters that Trump's inauguration drew a larger audience than previous presidential inaugurations, despite aerial photos and Nielsen ratings indicating otherwise. I mean is there anyone who can say how big our audience is?
