Sean Spicer reportedly turns down Dancing with the Stars

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will have to make do practicing the foxtrot in the privacy of some bushes, because he won't be doing it on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars, TMZ reports.

Spicer appreciated the offer to follow in the illustrious footsteps of previous GOP contenders like Energy Secretary Rick Perry and disgraced former House leader Tom DeLay, but he thinks he'll have an "overwhelming number of commitments in the fall," a person close to Spicer told TMZ, so he had to turn it down. There's also something else stopping him: His two left feet. "He's not a good dancer," the friend said.

It's too bad — Spicer could have had the largest audience to ever witness a short-tenured press secretary cha-cha on television, period.
