Who wouldn't, if their job entailed kissing Sean Spicer at an Emmys afterparty and then Sean Spicer-ing their way out of disaster in the morning? Who are we talking about here?
The clear reference was to Spicer's first appearance in the White House press room, arguing against photographic evidence about how large President Donald Trump's Inauguration Day audience was.
And Corden was criticised over the image, which appeared to show the chat show host leaning in to give the politician a kiss on the check, while Spicer pulled a amusing face.
Another posted: 'Acting like Sean Spicer is just another amusing guy is the same blurring of entertainment and politics that led to Trump becoming president'. "But in the spirit of Sean Spicer-no, it isn't!"
To say she was surprised is a bit of an understatement. But the sudden appearance of former WH press secretary #Sean Spicer in a self-depreciative gag certainly got a lot of attention, with building rumors having it that his Emmy cameo is a try at rebranding himself.
Liverpool (1) Burnley (1): Match Reaction
Asked if the competition for places has ever been this intense at Turf Moor, Vokes said: "No, not since I have been here". Countless chances went begging for Liverpool in the second period, as Pope was called into action on nice occasions.
'Why didn't you give him an Emmy? "So, him making light of it just did not sit well with me". "To be fair, everyone was kissing ass last night, I just happened to kiss the biggest one there". In truth, I'm disappointed by it as well.
On "The View", Joy Behar said that if Spicer and other Trump surrogates apologize to the American people, "then I'll have fun with you, Sean". "Truly I do. So much so that I'm starting to regret that Carpool Karaoke that I taped with Steve Bannon". "Feels like a mistake today". I tell you this. I'm not one of these people who has a couple of drinks and goes around kissing people that I don't know.
Concluding his monologue, Corden admitted that his usual greeting tactic needs to be reevaluated, confessing, "Basically, what I'm saying is, I need to learn how to shake hands!" Like the United Nations speech today. While he respects people's opinions, he said people shouldn't take the appearance that seriously.
Will it help Corden in the long run? Like Jimmy Fallon, his reputation is now on the hair-ruffler side of the divide.
