President Donald Trump’s first Press Secretary Sean Spicer was finally voted off of Dancing with the Stars on Monday after surviving 9 weeks on the show.
Spicer’s exit comes after weeks of strong fan-based support that kept him around despite consistently low scores from the judges.
President Donald Trump even weighed in, tweeting out “vote for Sean” and that “He is a great and very loyal guy who is working very hard”. Trump, however, deleted his Tweet when Sean Spicer was finally voted off. The President then tweeted out moral support for his former staffer, saying:
“A great try by @seanspicer. We are all proud of you!”
According to the Hill, Dancing with the Stars judge Len Goodman told Spicer that he and the other judges “keep throwing you out of the boat, and the viewers keep throwing a lifeline.” Spicer received a huge amount of votes from Trump supports who watch the show.
Spicer finally landed in the bottom two after his final performance to Destiny’s Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills” with his dancing partner Jenna Johnson. The pair received a score of 26 out of 40.
Sean Spicer had started with professional dancer Lindsay Arnold as his partner, but she was forced to miss the last 2 episodes following the death of her mother-in-law. Despite that, Sean had a message for his partner after the loss:
“I miss ya. I wish I could have done better. Thank you for everything you did,”
He ended his episode with a final thank you to all the viewers and his supporters out there as well as wishing America a Happy Veterans Day.
Sean Spicer currently holds the rank of Commander in the United States Navy, which he has been a part of since 1999. He also works as a political advisor out of Washington, D.C. since leaving President Trump’s White House in July of 2017.
