Sean Spicer Sits Down With Jimmy Kimmel To Discuss Donald Trump’s Tweets, Fake News, & Melissa McCarthy’s SNL Impression — WATCH!

Ever wonder what Sean Spicer is up to these days ever since he got the boot from the White House?

Us neither… but apparently Jimmy Kimmel was, so the late night host had the former press secretary on his show Wednesday night to discuss his time serving under Donald Trump.

In the 20-minute interview, Spicer stayed relatively loyal to POTUS, but admitted that even though he didn’t always agree, it was his responsibility to “represent the president’s voice.”

Here are few key takeaways from the sit-down (below)!

— Spicer said Trump never asked for approval before unloading his opinions on Twitter — and no, he never tried to flush Trump’s phone down the toilet:

“I think there were times when you might have wanted to go to bed and said, ├óΓé¼╦£Ok this is going to be a little longer night’ or you would get up in the first thing. But that was one of the president’s most effective tools on the campaign trail, and he continues to utilize it. So, you were constantly kept on your toes. And I will tell you, there’s no one that’s working harder than him when it comes to the hours of the day. He’s up late. He’s up early and that, as a staffer, you’re usually trying to get ahead of your boss.”

— Per usual, Spicer blamed the media for circulating fake news — which Kimmel pointed out is pretty hypocritical considering the President does the same thing.

Spicer said:

“This is where I think a lot of journalists have crossed the line, which is they go on Twitter or another social media and start to perpetuate myths or make back-and forth and say ‘Well that’s not a story that’s a tweet.'”

To which Jimmy responded:

“Wait a minute, the journalists go on Twitter and perpetuate myths? How about the president?”

Spicer went on:

“Look, I think it’s a two-way street. When these guys in the press corps go after the president in ways that are unbecoming├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥and again, it’s sort of like what your mom said, ‘Two wrongs don’t make a right.’ And so I think sometimes when the press corps attacks the president, undermines him, or calls into questions his credibility, from the outset, I think it creates a very poor relationship overall. And I think that there is some area that could deserve a reset, and, hopefully, I think Sarah [Huckabee Sanders] has done a phenomenal job of really trying to take the tone down and get back.”

— On his portrayal on Saturday Night Live by Melissa McCarthy, Spicer joked, “It cost me a lot of money in therapy,” before admitting the jokes didn’t entertain POTUS:

“I don’t think he found as much humor in it as others.”
