Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer to appear on RTE's The Late Late Show

Donald Trump's former White House press secretary Sean Spicer will be among the line up for this week's The Late Late Show on RTE.

In an Irish television exclusive, the chat show will see host Ryan Tubridy grill the ex-political aide about his time within the Trump administration.

Among the list of topics to be covered will be Spicer's statement that Trump's inauguration in January 2017 was "the biggest ever" - a much refuted claim.

He is also expected to speak about his tumultuous and often controversial six months as the White House press secretary, as well as his thoughts on Michael Wolff's explosive new book on the Trump administration - Fire and Fury.

RTE have said he will also give his take on Mellisa McCarthy's portrayal of him on Saturday Night Live and why he ultimately decided to resign from the White House post.

"Donald Trump’s presidency is one of the most fascinating and extraordinary things to happen in our lifetime," said Late Late host Ryan. "Sean Spicer was right there watching it all in a front row seat.

"I am really looking forward to getting his firsthand account of what it was like to be there in that White House with the world’s media watching and his insights into what’s really going on in Trumpland."

Spicer will also talk about coming to Ireland to uncover his Irish roots and explain why he still supports Trump - so much so he believes he will win another term in the White House in 2020.

The Late Late Show is broadcast on RTÉ One, Friday, January 12 at 9.35pm.
