Sean Spicer is continuing his tradition of making headlines for ridiculous comments, a practice that began on Day 1 of his tenure as White House press secretary when he falsely declared the crowd at Donald Trump’s inauguration to be the “largest audience to ever to witness an inauguration, period.”
In the wake of the controversy that erupted when he was announced as a member of the cast of the current season of “Dancing With the Stars”, Spicer stirred up more controversy on Tuesday with a tweet (which he has since deleted) that seemingly accused the show’s judges of religious discrimination.
After the judges awarded Spicer’s not-so-spicy salsa routine with partner Lindsay Arnold a score of just 12 out of 30 points, he took to Twitter to suggest his terrible score had less to do with terrible dancing than with the judges’ bias against his Christian faith.
Responding to a tweet from former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee encouraging viewers to vote for Spicer in order to “create an emotional meltdown in Hollyweird,” Spicer alleged the judges were out to get him.
“Clearly the judges aren’t going to be with me,” Spicer wrote. “Let’s send a message to #Hollywood that those of us who stand for #Christ won’t be discounted.”
