By now you've probably seen the tweets or read the headlines announcing that former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is one of the dozen celebrities participating in next season's "Dancing with the Stars" on ABC. As is expected when any conservative - particularly anyone associated with President Trump - tries to enter pop culture, there has been some nasty backlash. The reactions to the casting on social media ranged from I'm not watching, to this is offensive, to boycott!
But it was Jon Cooper who took it to 100. The chairman of the Democratic Coalition and Barack Obama's former LI Campaign Chair told ABC to screw off for "helping to normalize" Spicer.
Fascism? Whoa. Chill dude. It's a reality show.
There's no need for politics to get in the way of some good old Paso Doble. Good for Spicer for challenging himself! Maybe he'll even discover he had a hidden talent.
Spicer won't be the first member of a Republican administration to try the cha cha in front of millions of viewers. Energy Secretary and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry did it and he had a great time. See?

Other past conservative competitors on the show include Bristol Palin, who actually made it to the finals with partner Mark Ballas in 2010, and Tucker Carlson, who did not do so well.
