Worst: ... And Sean Spicer Showed Up

Like Anthony "Shit-Stirrer" Scaramucci, former White House communications director Sean Spicer has been making the damage-control rounds since ending his tenure as the Trump administration's punching bag. Spicey appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week, and last night at the Emmys, he rolled out on a fake lectern – y'know, like Melissa McCarthy did on her SNL. (See, it's funny, right?!?) He then assured Colbert that "this will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period." Ha ha ha. But this is still the guy who defended his boss's unconscionable positions (i.e. the Muslim travel ban) and absurd lies (the fact that Frederick Douglass is not, in fact, alive), among other things; his role in this dangerous, disastrous administration should not be forgotten. Letting Spicey in on the joke, however, does just that. AP
