    Sean Spicer poses on the red carpet stage at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 17 in Los Angeles.

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer continued his press tour (for what, exactly?) today with an appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Spicer sat down with Paula Faris, whose first question was about President Donald Trump’s reaction to Spicer’s heavily criticized cameo at the Emmy Awards on Sept. 17.

“He was very supportive. He thought I did a great job,” Spicer said. “It was very reassuring.”

Faris then asked Spicer if that surprise appearance was a step toward rehabbing his image.

“I feel very good with my image,” said Spicer, who made his late-night debut on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last week and gave a regretful interview to the New York Times on Sept. 18. “I’m very happy with myself. I’m able to go out and explain a lot of things now, but I’m not on a tour. I’m out having some fun.”

Spicer was less comfortable when Faris moved on to his former job.

“I don’t think so,” Spicer told Faris when asked if he had lied to the American people. “I haven’t cheated on my taxes. I’ve not knowingly done anything to (lie), no.”
