The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards opened with host Stephen Colbert, Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney dancing along to a musical-theater-style number which pushed him from his dressing room to the main stage. People are sick and exhausted of a constant barrage of criticism, remarks, jokes and comments about or against Trump. Spicer said it would be the largest audience ever to witness the Emmys, a send up of his defense of the Inauguration crowd size.

The White House press secretary is supposed to be trusted to give factual information about the president and the administration.

"Melissa McCarthy, everybody", Colbert said as Spicer waved to the crowd.

Donald Glover won the best comedy actor and best comedy director Emmys for "Atlanta", which he created and which carries his distinctive voice.

"I've done some jobs or things that you shouldn't admire or respect", Baldwin said. "I counted 11 on the monitor".

Although that wasn't the only bit of political fun-poking on the night, as Colbert spared Trump nothing during his opening monologue - at one point telling the audience that he was also an Emmy nominee, for The Apprentice - but had never won.

There was no contact between Olsen and Bills safety Jordan Poyer just before Olsen started limping off the field. Bills DT Marcell Dareus departed in the first quarter with an ankle injury, but returned later in the half.


Then, Alec Baldwin, while accepting Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for playing Trump on SNL, said, "I suppose I should say, at long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy".

The Emmy victor took another jab at the president when he mentioned that he and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, did not have a baby this past year. The show also won awards for writing, directing and for supporting actress Ann Dowd for a total of 8. "I'm not ready to laugh "with" Sean Spicer".

- "We refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot".

"And in 2017", Tomlin added, "we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot". "You got to have the big numbers and I certainly hope we achieved that tonight".

Twitter was just as surprised as the stars in attendance. Congrats to the couple!
