Spicer had reportedly turned down an offer to appear on the show immediately following his departure from the White House, but has since changed his mind about the dancing competition.
The show is notorious for having a wide range of personalities from the worlds of entertainment, news and politics — but the left is really mad that they dared to cast someone who was involved with the Trump administration.
Far-left blog Raw Story ran a headline comparing Spicer to Joseph Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany. Others whined about how his gig on the show would be “normalizing” the administration.
For 6 months, Sean Spicer served as White House Press Secretary to the most vile "president" in modern history. In that time, he repeatedly lied, obfuscated, and endorsed the badgering of a free press. He enabled hatred.
He belongs on a public blacklist, not in a waltz.#DWTS

USA Today asked executive producer Andrew Llinares if they were concerned that Spicer’s participation will “will turn off some viewers,” but he did not seem concerned.
“It’s really fun for us to have people from all different walks of life, representing all different parts of this great country,” Llinares said.
