Sean Spicer Is Seriously Being Pitched to Host a ‘Respectful' and 'Informative’ Talk Show

After a disastrous stint as White House press secretary Sean Spicer laid low, hoping the entire nation would forget his lies and immoral defense at all costs of President Donald Trump.


He made a very unfortunate cameo appearance at the Emmy Awards last September, which ignited tremendous anger on social media.

Spicer now is hoping his "time off" has been long enough.

Heavy hitters in TV distribution are trying to package a talk show featuring Spicer as host. As he told the New York Times, "I think it’s important to have a platform where we can have civil, respectful, and informative discussions on the issues of the day."

Few if any remember Spicer as civil, respectful, or informative. And even fewer remember him as funny.

“Sean Spicer’s Common Ground” would feature one guest per episode — think “Washington Week” meets Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

That's how the Times describes Spicer's theoretical show.

Spicer's first press conference right after Trump was inaugurated featured this now iconic lie: "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration -- period."

Almost nothing Spicer said in his first remarks as press secretary was true.

Spicer nuked his credibility on January 21, 2017. It is not repairable.
