Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer made his much-anticipated debut on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" Monday night, and he made sure people noticed.
What are the details?
Spicer's entrance was widely shared across social media, as footage of him descending to the stage in a ruffled neon green "blouse" grabbed the attention of the Twittersphere. Spicer later referred to his getup as "payback."
CNN's Jake Tapper was quick to share a clip of Spicer's salsa with partner Lindsay Arnold, which was set to the Spice Girls song, "Spice Up Your Life." The former spokesman earned 12 points out of 30 for his performance, with judge Len Goodman praising the former Trump administration official for his "courage coming on this show."
Spicer took a lot of heat when it was announced that he would be on this season's cast of "Dancing With The Stars," but he's no stranger to controversy. He got used to taking a beating — as every White House press secretary has — serving roughly six months as President Donald Trump's first press secretary in 2017.
Entertainment Tonight reported that Spicer said he was ready to take a load off following his White House experience, saying during his intro package, "I thought it was finally time to enjoy myself."
President Trump expressed his support of Spicer competing in the dance-off after the cast was announced, tweeting, "Just heard that Sean Spicer will be on 'Dancing with the Stars.' He will do great. Terrific person who loves our Country dearly!"
