Sean Spicer Says "Of Course" He Regrets Lying About Inauguration Crowd

Sean Spicer Says

He came on stage to joke "this will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys - period", making a reference to the debacle over numbers attending Donald's Trump's inauguration speech. Was he throwing the president under the bus?

The British star, 39, was criticised after he was pictured backstage at the Emmys with Spicer, who made a cameo at the TV awards ceremony. One of the most vocal proponents of torture, former Bush and Rumsfeld speechwriter Marc Thiessen, was hired as a columnist by the Washington Post shortly after his torture-advocating book was published, and he remains employed there. "This was an attempt to poke a little fun at myself and add a little bit of levity to the event".

"Of course I do, absolutely", Spicer said when asked if he regretted it. Such subterfuge meant that Spicer would have to travel to Los Angeles in disguise.

The Sean Spicer of torture and the Iraq War, Ari Fleischer, is a regular CNN contributor and makes many millions of dollars on the speaking circuit and providing communications consulting advice to large corporations and sports teams.

Nationwide Fund Advisors purchased a new stake in Nabriva Therapeutics AG in the first quarter valued at approximately $2,074,000. Finally, Wellington Management Group LLP lifted its position in shares of Nabriva Therapeutics AG by 9.9% during the 1st quarter.

Or maybe, late night hosts across the goddamn spectrum will hold Spicer to even the barest modicum of accountability. People compared it to "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon's infamous moment a year ago when he ruffled Trump's hair during an interview.

The Times did not state specifically the wording of the question Spicer was responding to.

Later, Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda shared their own anti-Trump moment, saying they "refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" in a 9 to 5 reunion.

"You are alienating at least 63 million Americans who supported this president last time", she said.

"They do parties a little differently than D.C.", he said.
