Sean Spicer says he's AGREED that politics should be free, but he needs conservatives to vote for him
Sean Spicer has called on the conservatives to vote for him the day after his controversial participation in season 28 of Dancing With The Stars was announced.
The former White House press secretary commented on the concerns of Tom Bergeron, the host of the show, that the competition should be free of politics, and said he agreed with him.
On Thursday, however, Spicer contradicted himself when he appealed to conservatives to vote for him to stay in the show, who allegedly pays celebrities at least $ 125,000 and up to $ 295,000 depending on their popularity.
After Fox & friends Host Ainsley Earhardt said about Bergeron: & I hate having brought it up politically. 50 percent of this country is going to watch and they are conservative and they support this president, this government, & # 39; Spicer laughed and answered: & # 39; And I need their voice. & # 39;

Spicer said he agrees with Bergeron, who shared this statement on Twitter, saying that the show should be a joyful interruption to our exhausting political climate.
During the segment, Spicer promised to leave politics at the doors of the ABC television studio.
On Wednesday, Bergeron tweeted after Spicer was announced on the show, two years later when he left the White House and first declined an offer: & # 39; I offered suggestions for season 28. The most important among them was my hope that DWTS, in its return after an unprecedented year-long interruption, would be a joyful interruption of our exhausting political climate and free of inevitable divisional bookings from EVERY party members. & # 39;
Joke Bergeron could have spoken about his DWTS competitor, Christie Brinkley, in his statement: Spicer said: “He has a right to his opinion, I share his sentiment, this should be politically free for two hours.
& # 39; But more than that, I hope this show is an example of a group of people from different backgrounds who ignore politics and have a civil time. & # 39;
Spicer went on to say that it was a chance to come together & show a lot that you can enjoy each other's company & # 39 ;.
He added: & # 39; Too much like what we have in this country is that every single conversation must be about politics. & # 39;

When asked what he says to Bergeron when he sees him, Spicer simply answers: & # 39; I focus on hard work and learning to dance & # 39;

He avoided sharing how he predicts that Bergeron will encounter every week.
When asked what he said to him, Spicer simply replied: & # 39; I am focused on hard work and learning to dance. & # 39;
The Fox hosts mentioned other conservatives who participated in the show in an effort to remove some of the slack.
They argued that it would be unlikely that producers would lead segments over the history of the Republican Party, but Spicer seemed to think that it was not a bad idea, as long as it was put in a good light.
Spicer intervened: & # 39; If it's fun, I wouldn't be against that. & # 39;

Karamo from Queer Eye reacted to a fan who was disappointed with his participation based on the casting of Spicer: & I am excited to sit down with him and have respectful conversations. The only way things get better is if we try to train people who have a different POV than we & # 39;
It was when he remained open-minded about listening to the views of others during the show, which will premiere a new season on September 16.
He seemed positive when he shared that he had had many pleasant conversations with other celebrities in the last 48 hours.

While the Fox hosts raised Queer Eye star Karamo Brown's tweet about looking forward to conversations with Spicer, the man – who left his role as press secretary at Trump & # 39; s administration in July 2017 – agreed that & # 39; what we need more is exactly what he is talking about & # 39 ;.
& # 39; We clearly disagree politically, & # 39; Spicer admitted about himself and Karamo. & # 39; So in a way that we try to understand each other's side. Part of what we need to do more about is listening to certain people. & # 39;
Spicer – who says he got out of the band in sixth grade and said: & # 39; You have the feeling of a beat of a steamroller & # 39; has packed the Fox & Friends segment by dancing with host, Earhardt.
He will participate in the likes of Lamar Odom, Hannah Brown, James Van Der Beek, Kel Mitchell, Ally Brooke, Ray Lewis and Mary Wilson for competition that could earn him much more than his $ 180,000 White House salary.
Spicer was forced to defend his inclusion in the cast of celebrities on Wednesday after the kickback.
He told Mediaite after a New York Times writer thought he shouldn't be on the show: & I feel very comfortable with who I am. I never really care what they think. I don't care now. & # 39;
Spicer added to Fox News: & I think Tom has been a great host. And I am convinced that when the season is over, he will probably realize that bringing together a diverse group of people, who can communicate in a fun, civilized and respectful way, is actually a way to advance the country in a positive way to assist. And it will make this show an example of how Americans can disagree on politics and tune in to good entertainment shows and keep their politics at bay. & # 39;
Fans will not discover with whom Spicer and the other bookings dance every week until the season premieres.
The Australian Latin American dancer Peta Murgatroyd returns this season.
The other professional dancers in the cast this season are Alan Bersten, Brandon Armstrong, Cheryl Burke, Emma Slater, Gleb Savchenko, Jenna Johnson Chmerkovskiy, Keo Motsepe, Lindsay Arnold, Sasha Farber, Val Chmerkovskiy and Witney Carson, as well as newcomers Daniella Karagach and Pasha Pashkov.
