Sean Spicer Says He’s ‘Going out and Having Some Fun’ After ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Casting Is Criticized

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer isn’t letting the critics of his casting on “Dancing With the Stars” get in his way of having some fun.

Spicer will be dancing his way across the stage in the upcoming season after “Good Morning America” announced on Wednesday his casting on the show’s Season 28.

“I’ve never really cared what they think,” Spicer told Mediate on Wednesday evening of a New York Times critic. “I’m not going to care now.”

The former White House staff wasn’t met with a full embrace, as the show’s host Tom Bergeron tweeted indirectly on Wednesday that he had hoped the show would be a “joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from any party affiliations,” as IJR Blue reported.

“We can all agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call,” he added, directed toward the show’s producers. “I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

However, Spicer is side-stepping his critics, as he told Mediate that he’s “going out and having some fun.”

Check out the video below:

“I’m going to enjoy myself, and if more people like me, than that’s great. I’m very happy with who I am. I’m very happy with the friends that I have. The idea that I need this to make myself feel better is preposterous. I’m in this because I enjoy it. I’m very comfortable with who I am, what I believe and who I support, and that’s it.”

In response to Bergeron, Spicer told Fox News, “I firmly believe when the season is over he’s probably going to realize bringing a diverse group of people together, who can interact in a fun, civil and respectful way, is actually a way we can move the country forward in a positive way.”

Additionally, Spicer told Mediate that he was approached about the casting on the show shortly after leaving his White House position, but, at that moment, it wasn’t the right time to join the show.


  1. I wonder if Tom has ever considered that HE is the one injecting politics into the show BEFORE it’s even been filmed? Nah. He’s Hollywood and self-awareness is a disqualifier.

    Let Spicey do a # to the Spice Girls, then the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and maybe finish with Salt ‘n’ Peppa. Considering the usual D-list celebs, washed-up athletes, and ex-porno stars who’ve appeared Spicy will be a change of pace.

    Don’t forget that it will likely spike ratings for all kinds of reasons.

  2. I’m sure he won’t be able to lie about being a dancer.

  3. Lighten-up, Tom! Sean Spicer lied for a paycheck. He was mocked on every continent. BUT he was a pleasant enough guy. He never appeared incapable of “interact[ing] in a fun, civil and respectful way,” For Gods sake, you had Tucker Carlson on the show years ago. It is an entertainment TV show, not an appointment to run ABC News.

    1. Glad to see you see a Republican (Sean Spicer) as a fun and civil individual. Maybe the Socialists could learn something about “civility” from him; something which has been missing from their “Party” (mob ) for many years.
