Sean Spicer Makes Cameo At The Emmys [VIDEO]

Aaron Blake writes for the Washington Post:

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer got a turn on one of Hollywood’s glitziest stages Sunday night. And he used it to laugh about the falsehoods he told the American people in an attempt to rehabilitate his image.

I’m all for a good laugh. And I’ll add up front that there are political issues on which people have extremely strong feelings and unfortunately can’t see the other side — we all have blind spots and should be mindful of that.

But inherent in Spicer’s appearance Sunday night was an acknowledgment that he sold the American people a bill of goods from the White House lectern. He essentially admitted to blatantly misrepresenting President Trump’s inauguration crowd size, and he and those assembled all had a good laugh at it.
