Fox’s Howard Kurtz Defends Spicer from ‘Media Mob’: Do They Want Him to ‘Wear a Scarlet Letter’?
Fox News’ Howard Kurtz defended Sean Spicer tonight following the huge backlash to his appearance at the Emmys last night.
Stephen Colbert brought Spicer on for a joke referencing that infamous moment when he got heated with reporters while making a false claim about the inauguration crowd size.
Kurtz told Bret Baier tonight that the “media mob” is “tarring and feathering him over what was a joke, as if he should never be able to show his face in public again or tell a joke.”
He added, “It’s almost like his detractors want him to wear a scarlet letter.”
Juan Williams, who said Spicer’s a friend, argued that there are “legitimate questions” here about Spicer being embraced by the “elites.”
