Former White House press secretary takes grilling with humor on 'Kimmel'

The former press secretary also insisted he's never seen Trump naked when Kimmel asked about the President's obsession with size.

"The President wanted to make sure the record got straight", Spicer said. The audience cracked up and applauded at that line. "I appreciate the reminder of how it went down", he said.

That made Kimmel laugh, too.

"If it was up to you would [crowd size] have even been a topic?"

"I thought I was going in on a Saturday morning to set my office up", Spicer admitted.

The former White House press secretary revisited his memorable briefing-room conversations, that often were a tirade against the media. "But look, he's president", Spicer said.

The late-night host appeared fascinated by this. "It's what makes our country great", Spicer said, before accusing the press corps of continually attacking Trump to "undermine him or call into question his credibility". "But ultimately he's the president, he decides and that's what you sign up to do".

Samsung sets up $300M automotive fund, invests $89M in TTTech
What areas will Samsung's $300m investment fund focus on? TTTech has been working on this project with Audi already. It will tackle everything from the algorithms that enable autonomous driving to hardware integration and more.

"Absolutely", Spicer said, to Kimmel's apparent surprise.

Given the photographic evidence of the crowd sizes, Kimmel asked if he or any other White House staffers tried to talk Trump out of making a big deal out of the crowds.

"Well, you're not", Spicer responded. Kimmel noted how risky it can be that Trump has lumped mainstream publications together as "fake news" because of unflattering coverage while believing more unreliable (and complimentary) publications. Spicer was not pleased with that remark.

In July, Spicer left Trump's administration after six months and one day on the job. "Because they're complimentary. Do you think that is a risky thing to delegitimize the press for America?" "And I think that's unfortunate because it gives a bad name to those who actually do take the time to get it right".

Spicer also denied that he left the White House over personal problems with Scaramucci, but said the NY financier didn't have "the qualifications or the background to work in the communications office".

Kimmel asked Spicer if he "cackled like a maniac" when he read the infamous New Yorker interview. Spicer insisted there was no schadenfreude. Since Spicer and Kimmel are both Catholics, Kimmel used Catholicism as a comparison and said that he hates when people "lump all [Catholic] priests together as child abusers".
