Sean Spicer 'Regrets' Times He 'Brought Embarrassment'

("MSNBC Live" with Craig Melvin)

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday he regrets instances where he "brought embarrassment to myself, my family and friends of mine who have been very big supporters."

Spicer appeared on MSNBC to discuss FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's departure when Craig Melvin asked about staff turnover, and, some of Spicer's infamous comments including when he berated reporters over their articles about crowd size at President Donald Trump's inauguration.

When Melvin asked Spicer if he had regrets over taking the job, Spicer replied: "No. I think in terms of net-net, I enjoyed having a front row seat to history, was an opportunity of a lifetime."

"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.

"I regret things that I did that brought embarrassment to myself, my family, friends of mine who have been very big supporters," he added.

Spicer was in the White House for only seven months, and resigned after Trump named Anthony Scaramucci communications director. Scaramucci's tenure was short-lived.

"When you have a job like that, Craig, the thing that no one can fully appreciate until you're in the job is that you're representing the American people, and you're out there not just talking to people who agree with you, but people who disagree with you and countries around the world who are listening – and when you screw up, you sit there and go, 'It's not just on you,'" Spicer said.

"The funny part is, in most of the clips that you played, when I screwed up and walked in and said, 'Mr. President, I need to tell you that' . . . He'd say 'I say it, I know what you meant, and I know you were trying.' Most of the time he actually said, 'Hey, I know you were trying really hard. We'll get over this.' That's what made me actually get through a lot of it was knowing that he actually was forgiving in a lot of my mistakes."
