Conway: Emmy Awards 'Politicized;' Spicer 'a Man of Good Humor'

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

Entertainers have the right to speak their opinions, but shows such as Sunday night's Emmy Awards are becoming "very politicized," White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday, but she did enjoy seeing her former colleague, ex-press secretary Sean Spicer, take his turn on stage.

"I guess it's more of the same, it's the sameness," Conway told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "They get plucked and polished and waxed, and some didn't eat for two months, and all for what? To sound the same?"

She added that she is happy that Spicer, is a "man of good humor," after the former press secretary came onto the Emmys stage, behind a podium, to announce that "this will be the largest audience to witness an Emmy, period."

"He has been quoted recently saying life outside is much relaxed," said Conway. "I'm happy for him. This is something that Hollywood lacks is introspection and humor."

Conway also said she is happy that "Saturday Night Live's" Kate McKinnon was able to get her Emmy for her portrayals of her, as well as Hillary Clinton. McKinnon thanked Clinton during her acceptance speech, Conway said, but "it had to be much more fun to play me."

But meanwhile, there were several attacks against President Donald Trump during the broadcast, and Conway said that she doesn't know "to what end" the comments were made.

"You are alienating at least 63 million Americans who supported this president last time," said Conway. "You are alienating many more who want the president to succeed. You are showing the world that you are so easy with an insult about our leader. I think that's really unfortunate, actually."

Conway also said she does not think Trump will call Alec Baldwin to congratulate him for winning an Emmy for playing him on "Saturday Night Live."

"He probably barely noticed," she said of Trump. "He is addressing the United Nations General Assembly. There are a lot of things on the president of the United States' docket. North Korea, Iran, healthcare reform. The border wall. He is a busy guy."
