Sean Spicer, President Trump’s first White House Press Secretary, will be on the 28th season of Dancing with the Stars.  The show typically includes celebrities from the worlds of sports, TV, movies and music, but has had other Republican contestants including Tim DeLay, former Texas Congressman in season 9, Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, former candidate for Vice President and Governor of Alaska in season 15 and Rick Perry, current Secretary of the Energy in season 23.  No Democrats. Many frustrated opponents of Donald Trump have taken to Twitter to protest the decision and to declare their intention to boycott the show.  Dancing’s host, Tom Bergeron, has expressed his frustration with having Spicer on the show through a twitter post where he said he was hoping to keep politics out of the show in order to avoid division and controversy. Bergeron also joked about Spicer’s exaggeration of Trump’s inauguration crowd on Good Morning America when he sarcastically said “The nice thing is Sean will be in charge of assessing audience size.” Many other people on the show’s staff feel angered by the decision to include Spicer because they felt attacked by him during his time as Press Secretary. With an administration as controversial as Trump’s, there’s no telling who might be angered by including a member or former member of his administration. For his part, Spicer thinks the show this season will set an example for how Americans can disagree over politics while still getting along.
