I always liked James Corden. His “Carpool Karaoke” segments are fun, and he’s in one of my favorite Doctor Who episodes from the Matt Smith era. Which is why it’s sad to see him being shamed into an apology just for having a moment of levity with Sean Spicer.
It always does.
You see, the left is piiiiiiissed that former Trump press secretary Sean Spicer told a joke at the Emmy’s on Sunday (see Viewer Ratings for Trump-Bashing Emmys Among the Lowest Ever…). OH NOES! SPICER IS BEING NORMALIZED WHEN HE IS LITERALLY GOEBBELS LITERALLY!!!
Where James Corden comes in is that he was joking around with Literally Goebbels at an after party.
Something that he was forced to apologize for on his show.
That photo of Corden kissing Spicer has awakened peak 2010 levels of Corden hate. HEY US TV HOSTS. STOP NORMALISING FACISM FOR A BIT OK?!?

Corden makes Spicer look like a beacon of honour and sincerity. It's like Kimmel ruffling Trump's hair all over again: proper enablers

Corden addressed the issue during the opening monologue of his show on Monday night.
“Anyone ever have that feeling when you get a little drunk and then wake up the next morning and think, ‘Oh God, who did I kiss last night?’ It’s a bit like that,” he said.
Corden claimed to understand why “some people have been disappointed by this photo” and revealed that “in truth, I’m disappointed by it as well.”
“I am, I have been reading a lot of harsh comments on Twitter today, and I hear you loud and clear,” he added. “Truly, I do.”
I believe it was Kierkegaard, or maybe it was My Cousin Vinny, who said “I’m done with DIS guy.” We talked about this in the Seinfeld joint this morning. This is leftism in 2017. Entertainment, but especially comedy, exists just to validate their worldview. When it doesn’t, the left loses its collective mind boogers and acts like you just punched their mother in front of them. She identifies as a gerbil.
And I’m sorry, but once you apologize for your comedy for the sake of appeasement, I have no respect for you. James Corden should’ve flipped a pixelated middle digit on Instagram to blast “the haters” and said “If you don’t have anything nice to say, piss off you wankers.”
Alas, instead of telling dissenters with zero sense of humor (or decency) where to go post mortem, he caved like a sissy-la-la-bed-wetter.
James Corden, what a pussy.
