Sean Spicer admits he made mistakes in the White House

Ex-White House press secretary Sean Spicer has admitted that he ‘absolutely’ made mistakes as President Donald Trump’s spokesman but he doesn’t regret taking the job. 

His comments came during an MSNBC  interview on Monday in which some of Spicer’s ‘greatest hits’ from the White House were aired. 

It included some of his more controversial comments, including the crowd sizes at Trump’s inauguration and references to Hitler never using chemical weapons.  

Host Craig Melvin pressed Spicer, asking point blankly if he regretted ever taking the job.

‘No. I think in terms of net-net, I enjoyed having a front-row seat to history, was an opportunity of a lifetime,’ Spicer said. 

‘Did I make mistakes? Thank you for taking me down memory lane. Absolutely. Do I hope I grow as a person, as a friend, as a stranger to do better? Absolutely.’

Melvin pushed again on Spicer’s regrets, arguing that the ex-spokesman was giving a diplomatic answer.

‘I regret things that I did that brought embarrassment to myself, my family, friends of mine who have been very big supporters, where I said, ‘Hey, that was a self-inflicted wound, I screwed up,’ he said.

‘And when you screw up, you sit there and go, You know what? It’s not just on you, it’s now going in and having to tell the president of the United States, ‘Hey, I embarrassed myself, your administration, and in some cases did something the American people are not pleased with.’
