Can we really forgive Sean Spicer this easily?
While we admit the former Press Secretary’s cameo during Stephen Colbert‘s opening bit at the Emmys was pretty funny — we feel some type of way about seeing Hollywood buddying up to this man who unapologetically spewed alternative facts in the name of Donald Trump to the American public.
After Spicer made a crack onstage about the award show’s crowd size, he stuck around to pose with pictures with A-list celebs like Alec Baldwin, Dolly Parton, James Corden, LL Cool J, Michael Kelly, and Gerald McRaney.
Understandably, people watching at home were not thrilled that CBS was seemingly rewarding and trying to normalize an official who made a career out of lying to us. It wasn’t so funny just a few months ago.
Ch-ch-check out the negative reactions (below)!

Thinking this is funny and normalizing him may indeed be how we got here. Americans are extremely shallow & short sighted.

Sean Spicer sold his soul to work for Trump and repeatedly lied from the podium. Hilarious!

The degree to which Sean Spicer has faced no consequences is a glimpse into the post-Trump future.

I’m not ready to laugh “with” Sean Spicer. I think he is an evil, opportunistic liar that hurt our country.

Normalizing people like Spicey is exactly how we got here.
