One of the most random moments of Emmys 2017 was definitely Actual Sean Spicer coming out on stage a la Melissa McCarthy, complete with rolling podium, and being the punchline to a joke set up by Stephen Colbert. This moment definitely elicited some mixed reactions, both from the audience in the auditorium, and the viewing audience at home.Read More
Stephen Colbert did a passable, if sometimes slightly uncomfortable musical number to open Emmys 2017, followed by an increasingly political opening monologue. It got so political, in fact, that a very "popular" participant in recent political goings-on actually made an appearance. No, not Melissa McCarthy playing him, but the man himself. That's right! Spicey took to the Emmys stage! And it was weird and kinda awesome.Read More
The gratingest show on Earth.
Big news in the Trump administration that isn't directly related to Russian scandals or bad policies: Press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned his post, and everything has gone bananas—but in a funny way this time.Read More
Over the last five months, Sean Spicer and the rest of the White House team have made a number of attempts to get around that whole pesky "free & independent press" thing.

A low bar to clear.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is bad at his job for several reasons, including that his boss is a nonsense person who regularly says and does things for which there is no defense. That doesn't stop him from trying, though, and when he's not making Holocaust comparisons that result in calls for his firing, he weaves plenty of nonsense of his own to defend the indefensible. Naturally, the Internet has run with that.Read More
