Former Press Secretary to President Trump and proud Irish American Sean Spicer is scheduled to appear on Ireland's most popular chat show this Friday.
His appearance has raised a lot of questions and many are speculating that he is testing the waters before being appointed as Ambassador to Ireland.
Buzz.ie is reporting that if he does well in this interview then it could be a very good move for him, saying:
'a favourable reception on Irish national television would certainly look good for him with deciding powers.'
The position of United States Ambassador to Ireland has been vacant since January 20, 2017, the day of Trump's inauguration and after Trump's pick withdrew his name there has been speculation who will take the job.
Irish-American man, Brian Burns was Trump's pick for the job but he withdrew his name over the summer citing poor health. Burns has a strong Irish heritage and can trace his roots back to Co. Kerry.
Host, Ryan Tubridy said that he is very excited about the upcoming interview:
"Donald Trump’s presidency is one of the most fascinating and extraordinary things to happen in our lifetime. Sean Spicer was right there watching it all in a front row seat.
"I am really looking forward to getting his firsthand account of what it was like to be there in that White House with the world’s media watching and his insights into what’s really going on in Trumpland."
Spicer also intends to do a bit of digging and rediscover his Irish roots.
He has also claimed that he 'is one of the most popular guys in Ireland' and his appearance on The Late Late Show will be a good chance for him to see if this claim is true.
During his stint as Press Secretary, he was poorly received in Ireland and there's no doubt he hopes that this interview will give him a fresh start with the people of Ireland.
The Late Late Show airs this Friday on RTÉ 1 at 21:35 Irish-time.
