He may have left his post as White House press secretary, but Sean Spicer’s future is, inexplicably, bright. The former and likely current Trump stan appeared at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday night to declare its audience the largest Emmys crowd ever — a direct nod to when he said as much about the crowd at Trump’s inauguration.
According to THR, Spicer was greeted like a hero backstage, with smiles and handshakes and photographs.
“It’s an honor,” he told THR of his involvement with the Emmys. “I have a lot of respect for folks who do what they do in film and on television, so it’s a real honor to be invited.”
Spicer was hyper-focused on having to use a mobile podium for the first time (the wheeled version belongs exclusively to his Melissa McCarthy counterpart), so much so that it didn’t occur to him or apparently anyone else that the appearance wouldn’t go over too well.
