Stephen Colbert Mocks Donald Trump With Some Help From Sean Spicer

Sean Spicer Says He 'Absolutely' Regrets Slamming Accurate Reports Of Trump's Inauguration 'Crowd Size'

Sean Spicer Says He 'Absolutely' Regrets Slamming Accurate Reports Of Trump's Inauguration 'Crowd Size'

Stephen Colbert, who hosted the Emmys for the first time this year, rolled Spicer out on the infamous mobile podium Melissa McCarthy used in her SNL impersonation of the former Trump administration spokesperson.

The former White House press secretary made a brief appearance at the end of Colbert's opening monologue for a bit that appeared to mock Spicer's defense of Trump's inauguration attendance.

And at the Emmys Sunday night, Alec Baldwin won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his portrayal of Trump - even though, one could argue, Baldwin's is not even the best Trump impression on television.

In all seriousness, the top prize of Best TV Drama went to Hulu's dystopian series "The Handmaid's Tale", which also won Best Actress (Drama) for star Elisabeth Moss. The evening's final honoree, Outstanding Drama Series victor The Handmaid's Tale, gave star Elisabeth Moss her first Emmy in nine nominations; Ann Dowd also won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Reed Morano took an award for her work as one of the show's directors, and Bruce Miller won Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series.

Kidman won big for Big Little Lies, and she got emotional accepting her first-ever Emmy.

Trump's lack of an Emmy win during his long-running stint hosting NBC's "The Apprentice" and "The Celebrity Apprentice" has been a sore spot for the now president. "If he had won an Emmy I bet he wouldn't have run for president", noted Colbert.

May censures Trump for tweets on London terror attack
Scotland Yard also reportedly commented on Trump's tweet saying that it was "unhelpful and pure speculation". The most recent attack before Friday was a van and knife attack on London Bridge in June.

"I was just trying to remember everybody, and you do have a weird out of body experience".

But the now-President of the United States finally won his long-awaited award on Sunday night - just not quite how he'd hoped. The two co-wrote and starred in the Netflix series' "Thanksgiving" episode, based on Waithe's real-life coming out story.

In the miniseries arena, the star-studded HBO hit "Big Little Lies" dominated with Best Miniseries as well as honors for Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgård.

Supporting Actress, Drama Series: Ann Dowd, "The Handmaid's Tale".

Variety Sketch Series: "Saturday Night Live". The orchestra kept up their amateur-night habit of cutting winners' speeches off - they cut off Sterling K. Brown during his extraordinarily gracious and eloquent speech: "Like, Water White held this joint?"

The Emmy statuette depicts a winged woman, and this year's Emmy telecast celebrated a TV season in which women, as never before, were able to soar. It also won outstanding limited series.
