Former press secretary Sean Spicer appeared for his second dance on “Dancing with the Stars” Monday evening.
Interestingly enough, Spicer’s appearance did not air on ABC in Washington, D.C. because the Washington Redskins were playing the Chicago Bears, who were up 7-0 while Spicer was dancing. It could put Spicer at a disadvantage for his crusade to win and it could be why he sent an email to his audience begging for help.
“We’re doing bumper-stickers, yard signs, whatever it takes,” Spicer said. Footage showed him with a bullhorn driving around the streets begging for people to vote for him.

We should look closely at Britain’s decision to elect a man so renowned for his untrustworthiness
In previous British elections, to say that trust was the main issue would have meant simply that trust is the trump card – whichever leader or party could secure most trust would win. Now, the emerging question about trust is whether it even matters anymore.
This is at least partly because Brexit has deepened the crisis of trust. The 2019 election was always going to be about Brexit – and not only because some people would vote according to where they stood on the matter. It was also because the emotional turbulence initiated by the 2016 referendum continues to dominate national politics in a more general way.
Here are 9 things people say about exercise that are utter hogwash

1. I was fit once, so I don’t need to exerciseUnfortunately, the health benefits of exercise won’t last if you don’t sustain your exercise regime. A significant reduction or drop out can cause a marked loss of initial benefits, such as cardiovascular fitness and endurance. Consistency is the key.

How Boris Johnson’s Conservatives swept to election victory in Labour heartlands
Welcome to a whole new political world. The UK general election of 2019 has delivered a seismic shift in the balance of the country’s politics, the consequences of which are very hard, if not impossible to predict. But what’s clear is that Boris Johnson has broken the legislative deadlock with regard to Europe and will now wield power in a manner that his recent predecessors could only have dreamed of.
To this extent the political system appears to have worked – the people have spoken. Clearly they want to “get Brexit done”, but the result also suggests the existence of a major disconnect between the UK’s main opposition Labour party and a big chunk of its base.
