An MSNBC panel on Sunday mocked the ABC reality show Dancing with the Stars for casting former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
MSNBC host Joy Reid wondered why so many former Trump administration officials are being hired for “second acts.”
“You’ve got Sean Spicer on Dancing with the Stars,” guest Jason Johnson said. “I didn’t know you could dance without a spine.”
“It’s all a hustle,” he continued. “I don’t believe any of them. I don’t believe Scaramucci. I don’t believe Omarosa. I don’t believe any of them. They are just the kind of foul, racist supporting people that they were with this administration.”
Johnson said that Hollywood is ignoring the atrocities of the Trump administration when it pays off people like Spicer.
“Anyone who makes these people out to be cute caricatures should be ashamed of themselves,” he added.
“Sean Spicer is an embarrassment to American democracy,” Tiffany Cross agreed. “I have zero interest in what either of these people have to say.”
“There are still children in cages as we speak,” she noted. “To look at this man who is now going to be somebody cute that we’re going to laugh at is abhorrent and a slap in the face to people who are suffering all over the country.”
Reid accused media of trying normalize Trump as a “wacky Jeb Bush.”

Saudi Arabia races to restore oil supply — drone strike blamed on Iran
Saudi Arabia raced on Sunday to restart operations at oil plants hit by drone attacks which slashed its production by half, as Iran dismissed US claims it was behind the assault.
The Tehran-backed Huthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is bogged down in a five-year war, claimed Saturday's strikes on two plants owned by state energy giant Aramco.
But US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pointed the finger squarely at Tehran, saying there was no evidence the "unprecedented attack on the world's energy supply" was launched from Yemen.
"The United States will work with our partners and allies to ensure that energy markets remain well supplied and Iran is held accountable for its aggression," the top US diplomat added.
Trump flip-flops on meeting with Iran with ‘no preconditions’– then blames it on the media
President Donald Trump went off on the "fake news media" yet again, after his own appointees announced he was willing to meet with Iran.
"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted.
In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.
“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”
Internet fears Trump’s ‘locked and loaded’ tweet about oil field bomb means he’s gearing up for war with Iran
the largest U.S. oil producer can be brought to its knees with a drone carrying a bomb. President Donald Trump responded to intelligence that the drone didn't originate in Yemen, but rather from Iraq or Iran, by saying he was "locked and loaded."
"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted Sunday.
