Ever since his resignation - which was Spicer's response to Donald Trump's appointment of Anthony Scaramucci - there has been a significant amount of speculation about what Spicer will do next. Spicer was spotted near and at various television network offices in NY in July. He spent part of last week in meeting executives of top networks for "a contributor deal", Page Six reported, citing sources. Attorneys Bob Barnett and Michael O'Connor, both of whom work at the firm, have represented a myriad of politicians and television personalities, such as Fox News' Neil Cavuto, Brit Hume, and Steve Doocy; NBC News' Andrea Mitchell, Brian Williams, and Cynthia McFadden; as well as CNN's Christiane Amanpour.
Twitter reacted with disappointment to the news that Spicer would not be appearing on Dancing With The Stars after all.
There seems to be a certain interest in what the future holds for former members of the Trump administration.
Obviously the entertainment value of Sean Spicer attempting in vain to learn the foxtrot-admittedly, the only dance I know the name of-would've been at an all-time, Mooch-level high.
The insider added, "he's not a good dancer", but ultimately said no due to his busy schedule. Spicer, who was known for his combative White House press briefings with the media, was impersonated by Oscar-nominated actress Melissa McCarthy on "Saturday Night Live".
Spicer's less than impressive dancing ability may also have been a factor in his decision not to join the programme's 25th season.
