Sean Spicer Plays Dirty on “Dancing with the Stars” | The Daily Show

Sean Spicer, former White House
press secretary and the human version
of a clammy handshake. After he left the White House, he did something
no one else did. He decided to dance. It’s official. The new cast
of Dancing with the Stars was announced today,
and one of the celebrities putting on his dancing shoes is former White House
Press Secretary Sean Spicer. I hope what this show is
at the end of the season is an example of people of
a bunch of different backgrounds getting together,
leaving politics aside -and having a good time
-Great. Mm-hmm. in a civil and respectful way. I think too much we– of what we
have in this country right now is every conversation
has to turn into politics. You know, that’s actually
a beautiful sentiment. I actually agree
with Pasty Spice over here. ‘Cause, in the past few years, everything
has become politicized– our food, our sports, even our kids’ cartoons. Ever since Dora the Explorer
got arrested by ICE, -it hasn’t been the same.
-(gasping) Just like,
“I wasn’t cross illegally! I just like to explore!” To be fair, she did have
marijuana in her backpack, but that was the monkeys.
That was the monkeys. But, believe it or not, since he joined the cast
of Dancing with the Stars, Sean Spicer
has brought everyone together. It’s just to laugh
at his terrible dancing. -(shouting)

At the bottom, Sean and Lindsay. At the bottom
are Sean and Lindsay. And at the bottom
are Sean and Lindsay. Dancing doesn’t come easy
to you. It looked like they were set
in cement, your hips. Technically, it wasn’t,
you know, great. You are just
a little bit robotic. TONIOLI:
What were you doing there? It was
like you were being attacked by a swarm of wasps. You got to admit, it is fun to
watch the judges dragging him. Like, I actually wish
every Trump official had to go through this
after leaving the White House. Yeah. Just be, like,
the judges going, “Stephen Miller,
you dance like a snake trying to shed its skin.” He’s like,
“Oh, I wasn’t dancing. I did just shed my skin.” (hissing) (laughter, applause) But those judges are right
about Spicer. Not only was he bad
at lying to the press, it turns out his hips
also can’t lie for shit. Right? In fact, I’m not even sure
that he has hips. I wouldn’t be surprised if,
underneath that stupid outfit, he just has the body of a Lego. Like, that’s what it is. So, look, Sean Spicer has-has
clearly been the worst dancer on the show
and possibly in history ever. He’s been getting
the lowest scores and should have been gone
a long time ago. But Dancing with the Stars
factors in both scores and the viewer votes at home. So once it became clear that he wasn’t gonna
win over the judges, Sean Spicer decided, “Screw the whole nonpolitical,
kumbaya crap,” and he started going on
the far-right website Breitbart to turn this dance competition
into a full-on civil war. (audience groaning) -(groaning) -Okay, I-I
haven’t said this in a while, but, Sean Spicer, what the
(bleep) are you talking about? -(cheering and applause)
-Like, first of all, first of all, people on the left don’t care if a conservative wins
Dancing with the Stars. Trust me, when it comes
to the liberal agenda, dancing does not make the list. You won’t see Bernie Sanders
onstage like, “College should be free. “Health care should be
a human right. “And the cha-cha should go
dun-dun, dun-dun-dun. We’ve got to fight for that.” (cheering and applause) But, once again, I guess
Sean Spicer has lied to America, because now he’s totally making
this thing political. He’s trying to convince people the only way to free
conservatives from persecution is to help him win
a reality dance competition? That’s not how things work. Nelson Mandela was never like, “To fight the oppression
of apartheid, we will be joining season 23
of Top Chef.” Like, that’s not a thing. -(applause)
-WOMAN: Ow! And-and Spicer hasn’t only
lasted this long on the show by turning this
into a culture war– he’s also basically resorted
to election fraud. You can vote tonight 20 times. Ten times text “Sean” to 21523. Keep hitting “send.” Just type
“Sean” over and over again and hit “send” until it tells
you you’ve maxed out at ten. You get another ten votes
by going to Make sure that you cast your
votes while the show is live on the East Coast,
between 8:00 and 10:00 p.m. If you’re in Central Time,
that’s 7:00 to 9:00. Mountain, 6:00 to 8:00. Here on the West Coast,
5:00 to 7:00. Don’t wait for the show
to come on live if you’re in the Mountain
or-or, uh, Pacific Time. Vote between 8:00 and 10:00
Eastern Time. Those are the only votes
that count. All right,
did-did you hear that? Did you– He just told people
to vote for him 20 times even if they haven’t seen him
dance yet, which is messed up.
Although, it’s also smart. Because you could wait
to see him dance, but then how you gonna text
the right number once your eyes are bleeding?
I get it. I get it. I totally get it. But beyond riling up
Breitbart listeners and showing his supporters
how to vote a thousand times, Spicer’s campaign
has been successful. Because, you see,
he’s harnessed the full support of the conservative world. REPORTER: It is your Shot
of the Morning. That is Sean Spicer dancing
his way into America’s hearts. Oh, my gosh.
It makes you feel like dancing! Wow! Sean Spicer! The biggest star right now
on Dancing with the Stars. He keeps going
and going and going. I’m telling you,
you’re doing great, my friend. You know what, Sean.
I-I think you’re getting better -every week. -I’m sure
that you improved quite a bit. Congratulations on that.
On to the next round you march. REPORTER 2: The president
found time to throw his support behind former
Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Dancing with the Stars. (reading): -(groaning)
-That’s right. Even the president
of the United States is stepping in to keep Spicer from getting voted
off the dance floor. You know, I guarantee that,
at some point, between running the country
and promoting Sean Spicer, Trump has accidentally texted
“Sean” ten times to the president of Ukraine. I know that’s
happened at least once. He just sent it,
and the guy’s like, “Mr. President, who is Sean?” “Uh, sorry.
Wrong number, wrong number.” So, look, I know Sean Spicer isn’t
technically breaking any rules. I mean, he’s breaking a ton
of dancing rules and just general rules
of physics about how the human body
is supposed to move, but he is ruining Dancing with
the Stars for a lot of its fans who genuinely love
to watch good dancing, because this-this is not
supposed to be about politics. It’s about talent. And a guy who dances
with the elegance of a dial-up modem logging into
AOL does not deserve to win. And you might be wondering.
You might be like, “Well, Trevor,
why do you care so much?” Well, I’ll tell you why. ‘Cause back in South Africa,
I was lucky enough to be a “Dancing with the Star.”
All right? I samba’d out there,
I paso doble’d, I waltzed. -(applause and cheering)
-And I-I did whatever that is. And you know what?
I’m proud to say that I kicked ass
because I worked hard at it. So if Sean Spicer’ gonna destroy
one of the greatest, most-respected institutions
in the world, I have no choice
but to defend its honor. Sean Spicer… (cheers and applause) We’re gonna settle this
like men, man. You and me! You meet me in the parking lot
after work! And it’s gonna be… a dance-off, Sean. -We’re dancing, Sean!
-(dance music plays) We’re dancing. We’re gonna be dancing, Sean.

  1. In the history of DWTS, no one has been more desperate for money. The person that cast him has a lot of explaining to do.

  2. OHHHHHHHMMMMYYYYYYGODDDDDD TREVOR!!! When he pulled the shirt, I lost it 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  3. sean spicer was on this who to normalize ppl from the trump crime circle
    after the presidency they'll try to return to tv Plz dont support shows featuring white supremacy supporters

  4. I never wanted to consider myself Republican or Democrat, but after this Debacle of a "Presidency", I don't think I can EVER trust or take a Republican seriously. What a bunch of swamp creatures!! The pond scum in the swamp & they have no scruples and will literally sell themselves and their souls for Trump and their party.

    I thought country came before party? Not with this scuzzy group of swamp things. They play right into the Putin playbook and divide our nation, cause chaos and generally fight and block anything Democrats try to pass. It's downright pathetic like Sean Spicer's attempt at keeping time during his dance routines.

    Please America, make it stop!!! I feel SO bad for the viewers of Dancing With The Stars. Do they have a bowl or barf bag next to the sofa? Or do they need an ice pack for their eyes after viewing Spicy's hot moves?? Their eyes must be burning into their skulls. Don't understand how folks can watch this weekly. No wonder he getting the votes- normal folks can't even stand to watch and probably don't vote (and what's up with that?? Why don't they change it to one freaking vote per phone number or email, why ten?? It's ridiculous. Place your vote for your favorite and be done with this BS!) and then you have THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES and Spicy telling their dumb ass blind sheep creepy deplorable swamp creature zombies to blindly place 10, 20, + votes to a walking clammy handshake in a tight, sweaty dance costume!! Lord help us, and may He help all the Republican kids who are inspired to join dance teams after seeing you don't need talent or rhythm to dance, you just need Mommy and Daddy to lie and tell you you're the best!! Barf.

    Wish everyone would stop watching this show and move onto the Masked Singer and let this one go to the graveyard where it belongs- right next to the Apprentice aka: the worst waste of prime time hours in television history.

    Peace out!!

  5. The Right complains about Special Snowflakes, while being the biggest, most hypersensitive ones of all. They mock safe spaces but demand a culture-wide one for themselves.

    Ugh…Sometimes I wonder if we should give those on the Right the persecution they so desperately crave. At least, then they'd have legitimate complaints to make. Because I think there are honest to God telephone poles that move more gracefully. Though like any true conservative, Spicer knows he can't win legitimately, so he has to resort to cheating.

  6. The worst part of this-
    White guys everywhere watching spicer ; see honey I told you that was a dance move
    The wives; no it’s not now please sit down and stop copying him.
    White guys; well if it’s not a dance move then why is he still on the show?
    Wives; 🤦🏼‍♀️

  7. Dancing is expression. Sean is far too uptight to express himself.
    I have never watched this show, or any reality show.
    Sean could've done it totally different an probably had most people on his side.
    But he sucks at keeping it real.
    Evidently no matter what he is doing.

  8. Republikkkans at work think they can do 45 dirty work and clown around in a show that I will never watch again. Everyone stop watching it

  9. It's so bad he can't even consistently move in time with Lindsey. Has he never studied anything musically related in his life?

  10. Kel Mitchell and James are the best – point blank. If those two don't make it to the finals then DWTS should hang it up. The producers sold their souls for ratings…

  11. The running theme for all these corrupt individuals is that they are looking for approval but in the wrong way… 🙄 Look at him feel giddy when people flatter him even a little bit while lying through their teeth smh

  12. I think Sean’s point was that it isn’t common to see a lot of conservatives, let alone high profile conservatives on pop tv so people feel connected to him and want to see him succeed.

  13. That is what republicans want as their politicians????? Well why i'm i surprised?
    In other countries you won't see politicians do reality tv…


  15. OMYGOSH the last part TOOK Me Slam out!! Trevor Sooooo Stuuuuupppiiiidddd🤣😂😂😂😂🤣😂😂😂😂😂🙂

  16. This is why folks don't take the MSM seriously, no one thinks it was an awful idea to give that man a platform. After everything he's supported, condoned, or turned a blind eye to he shouldn't be able to make another dime, but anything for rating huh?

  17. Why do people in times of peace always abuse their democratic powers to elect the least talented human just to "show em"?

  18. Trevor is the best, so glad you're doing your thing man. What an amazing show this has been for soooo long. It's different now, but I love both vibes
