Many viewers ended up taking Spicer's side after that Late Late Show interview
Everyone was glued to the TV last night for this.
In what will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the most talked about episodes of The Late Late Show in living history, it is surprising that the Sean Spicer interview will almost get lost in the mix.
Between Liam Neeson's comments on the #MeToo movement (more on that to come) and that bizarre bin segment (check out the public reaction to that here), nobody could have guessed that Tubridy's interview with Trump's former press secretary would comparatively barely register.
Just looking at the Twitter trending map in Ireland, Neeson's comments garnered nearly five times as many tweets as Spicer's interview did. And we all thought Liam would just be talking about his new action movie and get misty-eyed about filming Michael Collins!
Tubridy's interview with Spicer went on for 21 minutes (comparatively, that bin segment went on for 16 minutes, for some reason), and if you missed it, here were some of the "highlights", such as talking about agreeing with Trump's Border Wall:
His personal reaction to the leaked Trump tapes with Billy Bush involving sexually aggressive comments against women:
And the fallout he experienced having made the statement that Hitler never used chemical weapons:

While nobody was expecting Spicer to come out of the interview smelling of roses, the only reaction did practically come to his defence, with many finding Tubridy's interview style to be outwardly antagonistic from the get go:

Wish Tubridy was this robust with Clinton dragging out every embarrassing gaff on video. I doubt she'd have been as gracious as Spicer #LateLateShow

I'm not a fan of Trump (not a fan at all), but that was a totally one sided interview with Spicer.....he deserved a better interview than that.
You can't be that much to one side, Tubridy had an agenda there. #LateLateShow

Tubridy couldn’t wait to finish that interview. Sean spicer gave him nothing and was definitely the winner there. Tubridy and rte were out for blood and didn’t get a sniff. #latelateshow

Once again Tubridy shows up his mediocrity, bias and agenda as an interviewer. Sean Spicer ran rings round him. #latelateshow
