‘There’s nothing I’m giving up’: Sean Spicer works for pro-Trump PAC and will not curtail his duties while on DWTS

Published

on

Former Trump press secretary Sean Spicer will be a “star” on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars this season – much to the chagrin of many who expressed outrage this week – but what the announcement on “Good Morning America” didn’t mention is Spicer isn’t giving up his day job – not for a minute.

Spicer is the number three person at America First Action, a pro-Trump PAC headed by former Trump White House cabinet member Linda McMahon. He serves as the political action committee’s Senior Advisor and Spokesman.  The organization claims America was “held hostage” by an Obama administration that “sold, piece by piece…our hopes, dreams and values.”

Spicer also runs his own political consulting firm called RigWil.

He will continue to perform his function as the face of both companies, and as he told The Hollywood Reporter he’s not giving up anything.

“There’s nothing I’m stopping or giving up,” Spicer said, noting that ABC is “well aware of my job and what my companies do.”

THR notes Spicer “says he’s not restricted from political activity during his time on Dancing With the Stars.”

Spicer says, “I hope it will be a politics-free zone.”

The new season starts in mid-September, which puts Spicer in the unique position of being able to fundraise and advocate in support of re-electing Trump while his mere presence on TV – he is remembered as the face of the Trump administration – will effectively be a free “plug” for the Trump campaign.

In related and similar news, Fox News today hired former Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as a political contributor.

Trump lashes out at ‘grossly incompetent’ Nancy Pelosi but claims GOP ‘killing it’ in impeachment hearings

Published

President Donald Trump attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from the White House on Tuesday.

As impeachment testimony was underway in the House, Trump told reporters in a Cabinet meeting that Pelosi is "grossly incompetent."

The president also said that Republicans are "killing it" in the impeachment hearings.

But Trump took a shot at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who was testifying at the time.

"I don't know him. ... I never saw the man," he said. "I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct."

Published

on

Donald Trump Jr. questioned the military service of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, and was sprayed with venom.

The president's eldest son posted a link to a Federalist article suggesting Vindman is not a dedicated military officer and public servant, a line of questioning which Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) also pursued during an impeachment hearing.

"Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero," Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece's headline.

Vindman blows up Jim Jordan’s smear of his service by reading glowing performance review

Published

on

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman on Tuesday shut down an attempt by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) to question his service to his country by reading a glowing performance review given to him by former National Security Council staffer Fiona Hill.

During his questioning, Jordan quoted testimony from fellow impeachment inquiry witness Tim Morrison, who said he "had concerns about Lt. Col. Vindman's judgment" and said those concerns were also shared by Hill.

Jordan asked Vindman why his colleagues would question his judgement -- and the lieutenant colonel proceeded to read directly from Hill's final performance review of his work.
