On Sunday night, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer showed up at the Emmy Awards to poke fun at himself in front of the liberals of Hollywood. While many found his appearance to be humorous, “The View” host Joy Behar was triggered by it in a huge way.
“This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmy’s, period! Both in person and around the world,” Spicer joked at the awards show. Liberals were offended by this, as they took it to mean that he was admitting that he lied about the inauguration crowd size.
“I did not find it humorous at all,” said CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, according to Conservative 101. “As someone who sat in that press briefing room every day that Sean Spicer was the press secretary, I just don’t think it’s humorous when the former White House spokesman comes out, at this awards show, with all these Hollywood celebrities that they often rail against, to make fun of the fact — and you know, pretty much admit that he lied to the American people, while he was being paid by the American people to be a spokesman for the White House.”
“I sent an email to April Ryan. Remember April Ryan? She’s a journalist, and [Spicer] took her on in April — I mean in March. He said, ‘I’m sorry, please stop shaking your head.’ Do you remember this? I wrote to her and said ‘April, do you think the Emmy audience normalized Spicer?” said Behar. “She said, ‘Did they really enjoy it? I thought they were in shock. He minimalizes his lies’ — meaning Trump’s lies. ‘People are angry over it. Twitter was on fire. Sean can laugh at himself if he wants. It seems others are not. He owes people an apology.”
“I think that that part’s true. do. I think the fact is — he’s a liar. Trump lies, and then he and Sarah Huckabee and the rest of them who have to go out there swear to the lies. And I think that they all owe the American people an apology,” Behar added.
Unfortunately for Behar, however, Twitter users made it clear that they do not agree with her and that they want ABC to fire her:
