Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
@realDonaldTrump @seanspicer Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one! 😂😂😂😂😂 https://t.co/i3p2Fzrgda— Ryan Hill (@Ryan Hill)1573528211.0
But Spicer wasn't much of a dancer. Former Governor Mike Huckabee, the father of his successor, said Spicer danced, "like a drunken Baptist with a bad leg!"
The internet found it hilarious that Spicer lost the public vote despite having the leader of the free world and a political party pushing voters.
