The new season of Dancing with the Stars” introduced an eager and smiling Sean Spicer during it’s Monday season opener. The former spokesperson for President Donald Trump came out on stage with a neon green ruffled shirt tucked into white pants. He appeared to pump his fists in the air as he took the stage.

When it was Spicer’s turn to dance, he managed to perform far better than his lies in the White House briefing room. After so much experience tap-dancing around issues, it was assumed Spicer would do well, but like many political leaders, he struggled to find the rhythm.
“You were off-beat most of the dance,” one judge explained. “But you had fun!”
Ironically, he danced the Salsa along to Spice Girls’ “Spice Up Your Life.”
“What were you doing there?” asked of the judges when Spicer had finished his dance. “It’s like you were being attacked by a swarm of wasps.”
Luckily for Spicer, however, the judge found it “strangely entertaining.” The comment is remarkably similar to the way freakshows were described.
Spicer ultimately ended up with a score of 12 out of 30, beating Lamar Odom, who scored an 11.

I get the instinct to make fun of Sean Spicer for looking ridiculous on DWTS, but that’s the whole reason he’s going on. He’s playing a clown for laughs because he’d rather be seen as a clown than a fascist. It’s his rehab campaign. Don’t help rehab fascists.

Sean Spicer got paid 6 figures for this. He's also a Harvard Kennedy fellow. He also got a book deal. He was also laughing it up at a DC party for journalists the day before the White House Correspondents Dinner. All will fail up. It's how this town works. https://t.co/ZRgbGe4Cvc

We can’t wait to see how flexible Sean Spicer is on Dancing with the Stars since he had his spine removed years ago. #DWTS

Remember when everyone was freaking out about Spicer’s suit being too big and necktie too askew? pic.twitter.com/VmsIOuw6rs

I was just flipping channels and thought I saw this. Then thought: no, there’s no way. It couldn’t be. And yet, here we are. I don’t remember which day Sean Spicer wore this top during a press briefing. https://t.co/q9YtUcdxXk

Flashback. December 2016, a bar in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Spicer: ‘We’re going to shake things up in the WH press corps. You guys have had it too easy. Things are going to change.’
Journalist: ‘I dunno Sean, administrations come and go.’ https://t.co/lTqi7C1lbK

Yashar, amen! Sean Spicer lied to the nation non-stop. He should be totally shunned instead of getting paid to dance.

Sean Spicer owes Melissa McCarthy immense gratitude. The only reason he’s a “star” is cus she made his absurd antics funny.

‘Disaster and disgrace’: Regretful Trump voter disgusted by his handling of COVID-19 and race relations
Joe Biden has opened a four-point lead over President Donald Trump in Ohio, which the Republican won by twice that margin four years ago.
A survey conducted by Your Voice Ohio found the Democratic candidate leading Trump by 46-42, and Biden seems to be peeling off some of the president's past supporters in the state, reported the Columbus Dispatch.
White House suddenly orders ‘mandatory’ COVID-19 testing for presidential staff
White House employees will now be subject to mandatory testing for COVID-19, an official said on Monday.
In a statement to CNN's Jim Acosta, the unnamed White House official said that staffers working near President Donald Trump would be forced to undergo randomized testing.
"As part of our ongoing efforts to protect the health and safety of the entire White House Complex, randomized testing of Executive Office of the President staff, which has been ongoing for several months, will become mandatory rather than voluntary," the official said.
White House employees reportedly received an email Monday morning with a stern warning.
Thais ‘cast a spell’ for democracy in Harry Potter-theme protest
Dozens of mostly young Thais wearing striped "Harry Potter" scarves rallied Monday against the government, vowing to "cast a spell" for democracy as the nascent movement grows increasingly bold in targeting the powerful elite.
For more than two weeks, young Thais across the country have held near daily protests at universities and town halls to denounce the military-aligned government of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha.
Some have also waded into sensitive territory in recent weeks by holding up placards opposing Thailand's lese majeste law, one of the world's harshest.
It shields the monarchy and its super-rich King Maha Vajiralongkorn from criticism, making open scrutiny of the monarch virtually impossible.
