Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer did his best salsa dance during his premiere on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” on Monday night — and was then promptly skewered by the show’s judges for his stilted performance.
Spicer, wearing a neon green pirate-like shirt, kicked off the routine by drumming on a pair of bongos while the house band played the Spice Girls’ hit “Spice Up Your Life.”
Spicer then attempted to spin and twirl his expert partner in rhythm and shimmy along to the beat in coordinated moves.
The number ended with the former flack sliding about five feet down the center of the floor on his knees.
The judges, who credited Spicer with bringing fun and energy to the dancefloor, nonetheless said his routine got off on the wrong foot immediately.
“He was going bonkers with the bongos!” one of the judges said after the performance. “What were you doing up there? It was like you were being attacked by a swarm of wasps.”
“You were off beat most of the dance,” another one of the judges added.
Spicer and his Lindsay Arnold got a consistent score of four from all three judges, adding to a total of 12 out of a possible 30.
Viewers who tuned in at home were similarly harsh on Spicer.
“Sean Spicer is basically wearing the Puffy Shirt from Seinfeld,” Twitter user James Hasson wrote.
“Sean Spicer looks like a car dealership inflatable guy,” another Twitter user added.
