The cameo drew a mixed response from the audience, and speaking of fake politics, count Veep showrunner David Mandel and Julia Louis-Dreyfus among those who were not amused at all.
“I’m mad at myself for not booing and walking out,” Mandel tells EW. “I found it disgusting. Being in a comedy bit does not make him innocent of his crimes… He was up there making light of lies he told the American people.”
Seconds Louis-Dreyfus: “I don’t think it’s cute. There’s nothing funny about Sean Spicer and what his actions have been and what his behavior has been about. Period.”
