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.

Here’s why Rudy Giuliani can not legitimately claim to be Donald Trump’s lawyer
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani bills himself as President Donald Trump's attorney. But one former prosecutor explained why that is not an accurate description during a Monday appearance on MSNBC.
"Meet the Press Daily" anchor Katy Tur interviewed former Southern District of New York Assistant U.S. Attorney Mimi Rocah, who is a distinguished fellow in criminal justice at Pace Law School.
"So this news that the SDNY is looking into what Rudy Giuliani was doing overseas in Ukraine, explain what they’re doing. Also, very weird since Giuliani used to run the office," Tur noted.
Rudy Giuliani’s bank records part of investigation by federal prosecutors: report
On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani is having his banking records scrutinized as part of the federal criminal investigation into his dealings in the Ukraine.
The report says that prosecutors are also looking into his work for a city mayor in the country.
Giuliani has been a central figure in Trump's apparent scheme to extort the Ukrainian president into helping him dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, holding military aid appropriated by Congress hostage until the country investigates "corruption."
Police officer sues Ava Duvernay for depiction of interrogation technique used on the Central Park Five
On Monday, TMZ reported that former police officer John Reid is suing director Ava Duvernay over her depiction of the "Reid Technique" used against the young, Black suspects known as the Central Park Five in the Netflix film "When They See Us."
Reid is claiming defamation, insisting that the film's depiction of his methods are wrong.
"You squeezed statements out of them after 42 hours of questioning and coercing, without food, bathroom breaks, withholding parental supervision," said a prosecution staffer to a detective in the movie. "The Reid Technique has been universally rejected. That's truth to you."
