Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is set to appear on the popular television show, “Dancing with the Stars.”
President Donald Trump commented on it, tweeting out his support for the former employee. He said, “Just heard that Sean Spicer will be on “Dancing with the Stars.” He will do great. A terrific person who loves our country dearly!”

Apparently there has been a lot of backlash for Spicer though, over his casting on the show. He told The Hollywood Reporter that he is hoping for a “politics-free zone.”
Spicer – who Trump described as “a terrific person who loves our Country dearly” – has received backlash over his casting on the reality competition, including from host Tom Bergeron, who hoped for “a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate.”
“My hope is that at the end of the season, Tom looks back on this and realizes what a great example it was of being able to bring people of really diverse backgrounds together to have fun with each other,” Spicer continued, “Engage in a real civil and respectful way, and maybe show millions of Americans how we can get back to that kind of interaction.”
Spicer added that he sees this as “an opportunity to have some fun.”
