Michael K. Williams Has An Unpopular Opinion About Sean Spicer's Emmys Appearance

In an interview with The New York Times published on Monday, the former press secretary said he regretted berating reporters who pressed him about his assertions about the crowd.

As we previously reported, Sean Spicer surprised the Emmys audience by appearing at the award show on Sunday.

After seeing a clip of Spicer joking that the Emmys had the largest audience ever, Collins said, "I did not find it humorous at all".


Sean Spicer poked fun at his role as former White House press secretary at the Emmys.

While talking about how his appearance came together, Spicer who attended the official Governors Ball afterparty, said, "I had a conversation with Stephen [Colbert] and his executive producer". I don't know how else to explain the embrace of Sean Spicer's do-over other than with the fact that he is a white man.

Still, Spicer didn't give the White House or the president a heads-up prior to the event.


Spicer, who resigned when Trump tapped Anthony Scaramucci for what became a brief stint as communications director, drew controversy on the job for his misleading statements and confrontational approach to the press corps.

At that point, Spicer emerged from the wings - pushing a podium similar to the one immortalized by Melissa McCarthy in her impersonation of him on "Saturday Night Live". When scripts were handed out to crew members and performers, his name was nowhere to be found - replaced by an innocuous surname that began with the letter "S". Period. Both in person, and around the world.

Spicer was wheeled out to a shocked room full of celebrities whose jaws dropped when they saw the president's former mouth piece at the Microsoft Theater in LA. And the deplorable Spicer gets to be the punch line for the new "funny" Spicer.


At the Television Academy's Emmy after-party in Los Angeles, several gown- and tuxedo-clad revellers stopped to gawk at Spicer.
