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

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.

Did @ABCNetwork keep Sean Spicer on the show (despite backlash) because they wanted him to become a giant scrunchy Lime for lying to the American people? Hahahaha now you’re a Lime. #DWTS #DWTS28 #DancingWiththeStars #SeanSpicer pic.twitter.com/46xUcKwDCS

Trump lawyers argue ‘the president did absolutely nothing wrong’ as GOP presents impeachment trial defense
White House lawyers began their defense of Donald Trump at his historic Senate impeachment trial on Saturday, saying the president did nothing wrong in his dealings with Ukraine and American voters -- not Congress -- should decide his fate.
White House counsel Pat Cipollone said it would be a "completely irresponsible abuse of power" if the Senate follows the lead of the House of Representatives and votes to remove the 45th US president from office.
"They're asking you to do something that no Senate has ever done," Cipollone told the 100 senators gathered on a rainy Saturday morning for a rare weekend session at just the third impeachment trial in US history.
Louise Linton defended Greta Thunberg against her husband’s attack — but deleted her comments in less than an hour
The wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin stood up against her husband online on Saturday, but quickly deleted her comments.
At the World Economic Forum, Mnuchin told climate action activist Greta Thunberg to "go study economics."
"I stand with Greta on this issue. (I don’t have a degree in economics either)," Linton posted on Instagram.
"We need to drastically reduce our use of fossil fuels," she explained.
"Keep up the fight @gretathunberg," she urged.
Here’s why Mike Pompeo picked the worst possible moment for his expletive-laden anti-Ukraine rant
By all accounts, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's interview with "All Things Considered" host Mary Louise Kelly was a disaster. He reportedly swore at her, challenged her to pick Ukraine off an unmarked map, and said "Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?" — an incredibly insulting statement for America's top diplomat to say of an allied foreign country.
But as Politico noted, the timing of all this was especially ill-considered, because Pompeo is gearing up for an official visit to Ukraine — and even before this outburst, that visit was fraught with difficulties.
