MSNBC’s Craig Melvin Makes Spicer Awkwardly Watch Some of His ‘Greatest Hits’

MSNBC’s Craig Melvin landed an interview with Sean Spicer, and in an artful display of savagery, made the former White House press secretary watch a highlight reel of his most embarrassing moments from the briefing room podium.

“These are some of your greatest hits, so to speak,” Melvin said, before playing a montage of some of Spicer’s worst moments as press secretary, including his infamous declaration that President Donald Trump’s inauguration had the biggest audience in history.

“You made some mistakes,” Melvin said at the end of the montage. “Do you regret taking the job?”

“No,” Spicer replied, calling it “the opportunity of a lifetime.”

“Did I make mistakes? Thank you for taking me down memory lane — absolutely,” he continued.

After Melvin pressed for a clearer answer on whether he regretted taking the job, Spicer responded: “I regret things that I did that brought embarrassment to myself to my family.”

“When you screw up, you sit there and go, ‘It’s not just on you.’ It’s now going in and having to tell the president of the United States, ‘hey I embarrassed myself, your administration, and in some cases did something that the American people are not pleased with.'”
