Sean Spicer, the lackey who used to regularly spread Trump’s lies to the American public while serving as his White House Press Secretary, is going to be on the upcoming season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, his co-“star” Karamo Brown said he considered the liar “a good guy, a really sweet guy.”
Yeah, sweet like a kick to the throat.
When asked who he thought his biggest competition is, Brown answered:
“Actually, no lemme tell you something. Um, Sean Spicer and I have been talking. Yeah, like, literally, I was most excited to meet him because, like the thing is that people would look at us and think that we’re polar opposites but I’m a big believer that if you can talk to someone and meet in the middle that you can learn about each other and help each other both grow. So we have been chatting all day today. Like, he’s a good guy, a really sweet guy. Yeah, yeah, exactly. Karamo from Queer Eye saying Sean Spicer is a nice guy. I know. I know.”
Well at least Brown knows, girl.
Brown should also know:
Spicer lied to the press about the circumstances surrounding the firing of then-national security adviser Michael Flynn and the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. On the very network that airs “Dancing with the Stars,” Spicer defended Trump’s baseless and frankly racist lie that three to five million people voted illegally in the November election.
Trump used Spicer’s lies to help obstruct an investigation into Russia’s role into helping get him elected and to start a Voter Fraud Commission to suppress voter turnout amongst Democrats and people of color. Spicer also lied about a bunch of other hateful stuff too.
“A good guy, a really sweet guy.”
When called out by disappointed fans for helping rehabilitate Spicer’s well-deserved infamy, Brown responded in some now-deleted tweets:
“First, I have no say who is on the cast and didn’t find out till this morning that he is on! But I’ll tell you this… I’m excited to sit down w/ him and engage in a respectful conversations. Only way things get better is if we try to educate those who have different POV than us.”
In another tweet, Brown also expressed how he “can’t stand people” who post things “just to flame the fire and get a reaction. We fight harder than your ass ever has for people of color and members of the LGBTQIA community” after someone else called him out.
Here’s video of Brown talking about how “nice” Spicer is:

As The Cut points out, Dancing With the Stars has featured right-wing political figures before including grifty Tom DeLay, white supremacist Tucker Carlson, Alaska moose-mom Bristol Palin and former Texas Governor Rick Perry before he became our Secretary of Energy. We assume it’s just a bid by ABC to get conservative viewers. Blecccch.
