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.
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.
