The first time, Sean Spicer looked like an exploded, radioactive frog that had its own mesentery ruffling its limbs as it burst. The former White House press spokesman slammed on his debut appearance in the current 28th season of the US show "Dancing with the Stars" (the original of the German "Let's Dance") in a bizarre neon green flounce shirt on two bongos the sounds of the Spice Girls hit "Spice up your Life" vaguely skigymnastisch side lunges and stepped together with his professional partner Lindsay Arnold one of the strangest, most inelastic salsas you had ever seen - an alternative salsa, you could say , matching the alternative facts told by Spicer at the time.
As the clip of his dance appearance was washed away by Twitter last week, Spicer's performance was like the final scene of a dystopia comedy in which a sensationally tragicomic politician decides to leap into the public embarrassment pool with an onslaught and ass bomb At least for the length of a dance, the whole world premium hype dissolves into a hysterical carefree musical scene.
On Monday night, Spicer has danced again - because last week no one was shot from the show, his progress was not jeopardized despite devastating jury reviews: "Your dance looked as if a swarm of wasps attack you," blurted jury choreographer Bruno Tonioli ,
The Spicer marches
This time, Spicer danced an alleged tango, but as a march, to the song "Shut Up and Dance", which can be seen again as a small allusion to his past, devastating PR speaking voice in the service of Trump: You dance badly, but if you open your mouth, that's not nice. Spicer robotically drummed across the dance floor, and one immediately wished that the people in charge of this popular Twitter account, backing up Soviet soldiers with Britney Spears and Coldplay, could also embrace Spicer's peculiarly military dance style - and his latest Choreo might be inferior to Bonduelle's commercials evergreen "The Maize Marching".

So far, people from the political business were not among the classic candidates in "Dancing with the Stars" - similar to the German version, people like to make use of what-does-actually-actors (half the original cast of "Beverly Hills, 90210 "danced with), polarizing staff from the" bachelor "universe and more or less known ex-athletes, as well as expelled boy band members and members of the Kardashian clan.
Spicer back in campaign mode
In between, bizarre candidates such as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, astronaut Buzz Aldrin or "A-Team" member Mr.T have been appearing in the last 27 seasons. Among the best-known international candidates of the current season are Spicer actor James Van Der Beek, the eternal Dawson Leery (who is one of the favorites after two excellent performances to date) and "Queer Eye" emblematic Karamo Brown.
If one puts more cunningly and naively skill and sympathy as yardsticks, Spicer's participation would have done quite soon - on Monday he escaped the expulsion, after two couples got even fewer jury points than him. In fact, Spicer could indeed win "Dancing with the Stars" despite the poor, heavy-footed performances and apparently complete unfitness for the dance floor: As in the German version, the points awarded by the jury are also counted by the audience.
Sean Spicer has already launched a campaign page where he sells merchandise and asks people to vote for him. "Let's finally pick somebody to represent people like us this fall," says an oily spokesman in his promotional video, "I'll fight for any American you overlook and forget, because he has no moves and no sense of rhythm," promises Spicer. And the tragic thing about it is that you can not laugh about it, because one of these output actually does not seem so unlikely.
