Sean Spicer pressed (gently) as 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' guest

Sean Spicer pressed (gently) as 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' guest”

Sean Spicer was greeted by something he wasn't quite used to when he was the Press Secretary for the White House: cheers.

"It's my job to speak on his behalf", Spicer said.

Spicer said in order to understand Trump's crowd-size fixation, you have to understand that people in the Trump camp felt they were battling constant attempts, "in the media in particular", to "undermine the validity" of Trump's win.

And Kimmel took the opportunity to rib Spicer about that first press briefing. "Do you think that is what got you off to kind of a bad start with the press corp?"

"I have not", Spicer said. "I appreciate the reminder how it went down".

That made Kimmel laugh, too. "If it was up to you would this have even been a topic?"

"You know, if it was up to me I probably would have worn a different suit", Spicer said.

Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer impression was brilliant because through his character she could say anything; the real deal, on the other hand, can still only parrot praise for this administration and caution us all to be more tolerant of it, specifically of the lies it tries passing off as anti-establishment heroics.

Spicer left his short-lived position at the White House in July after even shorter lived Anthony Scaramucci was named communications director.

The late-night host appeared fascinated by this.

Kimmel responded to this line of thinking with a question, "So, if I were to say to you, I'm sitting on a horse right now?" "So if you're not speaking in the way that he wants, obviously he wanted to make sure he corrected that". "But ultimately, he's the president". Kimmel then threw out.

"As I said, he's the president; he decides", Spicer said.

'Well, you're not, ' Spicer added.

Following a clip of Spicer telling the press that he'd never knowingly say something that wasn't factual as press secretary, but "sometimes we can disagree with the facts", Kimmel asked, "Can we though disagree with the facts?" Spicer was not pleased with that remark.

"Yeah, well, I'm sure".

"When you brought that crowd size thing out, you like opened this bad Pandora's Box", Kimmel said.

Spicer shot back, "I don't think it was probably the best start".

And while he denied personal problems with The Mooch as to why he left the White House, Spicer did say that Scaramucci didn't have 'the qualifications or the background to work in the communications office'.

Kimmel asked if Spicer celebrated after the now-infamous New Yorker interview that led to Scaramucci's extremely swift departure. Spicer insisted there was no schadenfreude.

Kimmel interrupted: "I imagine you high-fiving everyone".
