You know that one guy that gets drunk and then tries to kiss everyone at parties? James Corden is very much that guy.

To the disappointment and outrage of many Twitter users, a photographer captured what appeared to be a giddy Corden kissing Spicer’s cheek backstage.

This has lowered my opinion of James Corden, it really couldn't get any lower.

“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,” Corden said in the opening monologue of his show Monday night, which was rife with jokes—and absent of apology—about the photo.
Many people compared the photo of Corden and Spicer to last year when Jimmy Fallon ruffled Trump’s hair on the Tonight Show.

The only person happy with James Corden kissing Sean Spicer is Jimmy Fallon

James Cordon is now on the same list as Jimmy Fallon for people I thought were cool and funny but are actual massive gobshites

“To be fair, everyone was kissing ass last night at the Emmys,” went another of Corden’s jokes about the photo on his show. “I just happened to kiss the biggest one there.”
“Basically, what I’m saying is, I need to learn how to shake hands!” Corden said.
