Sean Spicer, the former Trump press secretary, wants everyone to know that if you vote for him on the ABC show “Dancing with the Stars” you will be taking a stand for Christ.
It all started when Christian Right politician Mike Huckabee tweeted this:
Wanna create an emotional meltdown in Hollyweird? Vote for @seanspicer to win “Dancing with the Stars” tonight and every night he’s on. @seanspicer is a good guy and a brave sport to go on DWTS. Let’s show him some love! https://t.co/UNI7xXVtwh pic.twitter.com/hlb2LeUFar

Thank you @GovMikeHuckabee Clearly the judges aren’t going to be with me. Let’s send a message to #Hollywood that those of us who stand for #Christ won’t be discounted. May God bless you https://t.co/Qqa9xi3pIM

Let the record show that evangelical victimization complex has now extended to televised dance competitions. At this point, I will just let Princeton historian Kevin Kruse respond:
You’re on this show because you stood up for a serial adulterer and lied endlessly for him in exchange for pay and power.
Christ had nothing to do with it.
