James Corden says he's 'disappointed' in himself for kissing Sean Spicer at the Emmys
“Everyone was kissing ass at the Emmys, I just kissed the biggest one there.”

IN A CONTROVERSIAL moment at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, much-derided former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer arrived on stage to parody Melissa McCarthy’s ‘Spicy’ persona from Saturday Night Live.

Poor Melissa looked pained – well, he was stealing her bit.

The stunt was roundly panned by viewers and some of the celebrities in attendance – we say ‘some’, because there is plenty of evidence of Spicer living it up at the afterparties.

Just look at this photo of James Corden planting a big one on his cheek:

You may not be surprised to hear that it didn’t go down too well:

Speaking on his show on Monday night, Corden addressed the picture and the reports that Spicer was “the most popular guy in the room” at the after-parties:

I just want to say, I think people are forgetting that this man was lying to the American people and should not be embraced. These Hollywood phonies, kissing up to Sean Spicer, are disgusting.

“Now, I know you think that is a picture of me kissing Sean Spicer, but in the spirit of Sean Spicer, no it isn’t,” he continued.

Anyone ever have that feeling when you get a little drunk and then wake up the next morning and think: “Oh god, who did I kiss last night?” To be fair, everyone was kissing ass last night at the Emmys, I just kissed the biggest one there.
Understandably, some people have been disappointed by this photo. In truth, I am disappointed by it as well. I’ve been reading a lot of harsh comments on Twitter today and I hear you loud and clear. Truly I do. So much so, I am really starting to regret that Carpool Karaoke we’ve taped with Steve Bannon.

This didn’t do a whole lot to get him back in the good books:

Yeesh. Best pipe down for a little bit, James.
