Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer has trolled Donald Trump at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards in a skit with host Stephen Colbert.

To the shock of many celebrities in the audience, Spicer rolled a podium onto the stage to make a questionable statement about the size of the Emmys audience, echoing what he said about Trump's inauguration crowd size in January.

"This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period! Both in person and around the world," proclaimed Spicer.

"Wow, that really soothes my fragile ego," Colbert quipped back, before referring to Spicer as Melissa McCarthy - the comedian who portrayed him on Saturday Night Live.

Early 2017 Emmys have gone to The Crown, The Handmaid's Tale, Saturday Night Live, Big Little Lies and Atlanta.
