Sean Spicer Makes Dancing With The Stars Debut

Deadline Hollywood reports:

Sean Spicer flashed across the screen in a neon green puffy shirt for his debut on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars — at least he chose a blinding lime over Trump orange.

He danced a salsa with professional Lindsay Arnold to the Spice Girls “Spice Up Your Life,” and while he earned some respect for the judges for being game to doing the show, they scored near the bottom of all of the contestants, scoring 12 out of 30.

“I started off at minus ten,” Spicer said afterward, standing next to Arnold. “She has been a phenomenal coach.” His segment started with him playing the bongos before he went in to the dance moves with Arnold, but it failed to impress the judges. They did give him credit for trying.

The Daily Beast reports:

“I was Donald Trump’s first White House press secretary,” he said by way of introduction. “There’s no question my time in the White House was tumultuous.”

After a montage of some of the least damning moments from his tenure, Spicer embarrassed himself further by gushing over the tweet Trump put out congratulating him on the reality gig. “It’s nice to have the leader of the free world on your side when it comes to getting votes,” he added.

“What were you doing there?” one of the judges asked when he was done. “It’s like you were being attacked by a swarm of wasps.” The best he could say was that it was “strangely entertaining.”
