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

Internet recoils at Trump’s latest ‘insane’ news conference: ‘Maybe this guy shouldn’t be president’
President Donald Trump ranted at length about the Kurds, military deployments overseas, Sen. Lindsey Graham and former President Barack Obama in a bizarre conversation with reporters in the White House.
The president met with the media Wednesday afternoon during a bilateral meeting with Italian president Sergio Mattarella, and he touched on a bewildering variety of topics -- much to the confusion of onlookers.
This is fucking insane.
This press conference is purpose-built to empower and delight every bad actor in the world.
Biden finally unloads on Trump for smearing his son: ‘Release your tax returns or shut up’
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday blasted President Donald Trump for an ongoing attack on his son Hunter.
At a press conference in Ohio, Biden was asked if he had done enough to stop his son from taking a retainer from a company in Ukraine.
But the former vice president insisted that "corruption" in Trump's government should be the immediate focus.
"He is running the most corrupt government in the history of the United States of America," Biden charged. "He is running the most corrupt government in the history of the United States of America."
Biden then turned to the camera as if he were speaking directly to Trump.
Trump rants about Christopher Columbus during press conference with Italy’s president
President Donald Trump on Wednesday insisted that he would never stop celebrating Christopher Columbus.
"The United States and Italy are bound together by a shared cultural and political heritage dating back thousands of years to ancient Rome," Trump said during a joint press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella.
"Over the centuries, the Italian people have blessed our civilization with magnificent works of art, science, philosophy, architecture, and music. On Monday, we paid tribute to the Italian explorer who led a voyage of discovery to the new world. A gentleman known as Christopher Columbus. To me, it will always be called Columbus Day. Some people don’t like that. I do."
