James Corden Admits He's "Disappointed" by Photo of Himself Kissing Sean Spicer

Spicer, who quickly rose to stardom through his regularly aggressive bouts with White House journalists, and of course, forgetting our Prime Minister's name, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel's late-night talk show to discuss everything from his time with the guy who is still (can you believe it?) the leader of the free world. "I mean, who would do this?"

"I was surprised at how nice people were to me", he said.

While Sean Spicer's appearance at this year's Emmy Awards has generated a good deal of controversy, View co-host Jedediah Bila thinks everyone should lighten up about it. They came up with a concept, and I thought it was kinda amusing.

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'.

US Will Stay in Paris Climate Agreement After All
The president on September 12 called the sanctions "not a big deal", apparently questioning their potential effectiveness. Last week, the United Nations approved a round of sanctions for North Korea for continuing its missile program.

Danny Welbeck succumbs to yet another injury
But he was forced out of Sunday's 0-0 draw with Chelsea after picking up what appeared to be a groin injury in the 73rd minute. Wenger confirmed after the match that he did not know the severity of the issue but did not believe it to be particularly bad.

At UN, Trump threatens to 'totally destroy North Korea'
Secretary-General Antonio Guterres appealed from the General Assembly lectern for statesmanship to avoid war with North Korea. The U.N. assembly hall was packed with diplomats and world leaders eager to take the measure of the new American president.

Attempting to provide an explanation, Corden blamed celebratory drinks at the Emmys afterparty.

In his defense, Corden joked, "To be fair, everyone was kissing ass last night at the Emmys". Even lovable late night host James Corden, who was photographed kissing Spicer on the cheek post-ceremony, got slammed for saddling up to the same man who admitted just last week that he would say whatever his boss, President Trump, wanted him to - whether he believed it. "Understandably, some people have been disappointed by this photo". I've been reading a lot of harsh comments on twitter today and I hear you loud and clear.

"I can promise you this, that kiss was a one-time thing". He joked that Robert DeNiro, who appeared as Bernard Madoff in the HBO movie "Wizard of Lies", had actually been the star of "The Sean Spicer Story".

"Basically, what I'm saying is, I need to learn how to shake hands", Corden said. That is, perhaps, with the exception of Melissa McCarthy, an actor who perhaps knows more intimately the vagaries of Spicer's tenure as press secretary, and looked embarrassed on behalf of Hollywood.
