“Remember when Spicer talked about ‘Holocaust centers’ and defended Hitler, saying he didn’t use chemical weapons?”
Disney and ABC Television must have known that putting former Trump press secretary Sean Spicer on “Dancing With the Stars” would draw condemnation, but the outrage over the just-announced news is palpable.
Spicer will go down in history for the massive lies he told, starting with his vicious and attacking falsehoods about the size of the crowd at President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The lies seemed to continue daily, only to be outdone by, at one point, Spicer actually appearing to defend Hitler for not gassing his people – which he clearly did.
Spicer appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Wednesday to join in the announcement that he’ll be among the “stars” to dance on the 14-year old primetime reality TV show. One of the co-hosts of the show, popularly known as just “DWTS,” made a joke of Spier’s day one lies:

Spicer’s lies are so ingrained in the Trump administration’s history they even appear in the Mueller report.
On Spicer’s exit from the Trump White House The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza wrote: “Sean Spicer Will Be Remembered for His Lies.”
Many are furious that ABC is “normalizing” a “pathological liar” and normalizing fascism by placing him on national television in a reality TV show.
Take a look:
S. SPICER: Hitler didn’t even sink to the level of using chemical weapons… he was not using the gas on his own people
NETWORK EXECS: Can you dance, though?

tee hee, get it, cause he turned a taxpayer-funded position into a propaganda arm, lying to our faces every single day in order to aid a white supremacist administration, hilarious!

Intentionally and gleefully lying to the American public is not something to joke about. Disgusting.

Was Joseph Goebbels unavailable?

I’m old enough to remember when Sean Spicer said Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons on his own people and then when backtracking called concentration camps “Holocaust centers”.
Not a good look ABC. pic.twitter.com/RFMMpFAyUC

Remember when Spicer talked about ‘Holocaust centers’ and defended Hitler, saying he didn’t use chemical weapons? That should have had actual repercussions. And should now too. https://t.co/jDWSTX8OdR

None of this is funny. This man knowingly and blatantly lied to the American people in his official capacity as a government servant of the people. He helped create the atrocity that is still in office. Shame on ABC.

Nicely done, Tom!
But I’d be more impressed if you walked out of hosting this season to boycott his selection.

it’s funny because his job was to help a dangerous psychopath constantly lie to the country

This is a seriously bad look on @DancingABC for casting this man.

Normalize fascism with the wash ups

Why is DWTS promoting a pathological liar?#BoycottDWTS
— Elizabeth Squires (@esquires1215) August 21, 2019
you know how you sit in history class learning (hopefully they teach u) about the Holocaust and various genocides and you think “how on earth do good ppl let this happen?” When Spicer showed up on the Emmy’s was the first time I really truly understood how.

I am a super loyal @dancingabc viewer who will not be watching this season. #DWTS is about growth, fun, escapism — and Sean Spicer and the Trump Administration are what we need to escape from. This is so disappointing. https://t.co/Rh1rCQA6gP
