Here's an interesting view-point on the Trump and his Administration. . .
Ever watch Dancing with the Stars (DWTS)??
Amy and I have been watching DWTS since it started. We love the show. We love to dance (although I'm not really good at it). DWTS is a reality show where "stars" pair up with real professional dancers and compete with each other. Each "star", coupled with the professional dancer, are judged to the quality of the dance routine. Each week, one "star" and his or her professional dancer are voted off the show. People who watch the show can call in and VOTE for their favorite star. These telephoned or texted votes weigh heavily on which star and his or her professional dancer gets voted out of the contest. This is in addition to the on-air judge panel, which gives professional comments to each dance routine. The on-air judge panel also has say-so, although limited, to which "star" and his or her professional dancer gets voted off the show each week. In the end, only one star and his or her professional dancer remains, and wins a trophy.
These "stars" that are on each season come from different backgrounds. Some are television stars. Some are movie stars. Some are Broadway (theater) stars. Some are professional athletes. Some are simply well-recognized celebrities that have been in the public eye for one reason or another.
Each "star" may or may not have had formal dance training in their past. The level of dancing ability varies from star to star, season to season. Some are good. Some are noticeably awful.
Guess which "star" is on DWTS this season?!?
Here's the thing about DWTS. It show-cases what really great dancing looks like. The professional dancers are wonderfully talented. You want to know what really good dancing looks like?!? Watch DWTS!! With the help of the paired professional dancer, the "stars" on each season usually grow as dancers. Generally, those who don't grow - those who don't improve - get voted out, some quicker than others. Generally, the weakest dancing "stars" are voted off the show by the 3rd or 4th episode within each DWTS season. Generally. But not always.
Sometimes a "favored star" remains on DWTS well into the season. This is despite the fact that they are not really good dancers. How do they remain in the show??? Their fan base continues to vote them in, show after show, week after week.
So. . . How is Sean Spicer?? Well, Sean is not a dancer. Without a doubt, he has charisma. As Amy might say, "He has that 'Thing'! "; he has that "attractive" star-like quality. Does he dance well?? No. It is terribly obvious that Sean can not dance. Despite his charisma and on-stage charm, Sean struggles to show-case each dance routine to look as it ought to look. Often, Sean dances out of the flow (the beat) of the music. Simply, Sean is not a dancer. But he continues to charge on with his well-liked smile and charisma, and his fan-base obviously LOVE him. Sean's fans keep voting for him, show after show, week after week. So, Sean is still on the show! From the sheer point of judging his dance quality, does Sean deserve to be on at this point of the season?? No. Sean is obviously not a good dancer.
Last week, Amy and I noticed this "Sean Spicer on DWTS" phenomenon and how it closely represents Trump and his Administration. It's almost a perfect allegory. As Sean continues on DWTS, he clearly demonstrates that he is not a dancer. By all standards of quality dancing, Sean should have been voted off the show weeks ago. As Trump continues on as President of the United States, he CLEARLY demonstrates how he is unfit to be President. By all standards of quality governing (corrupt-free, willfully transparent, etc.), adherence to the United States Constitution, and ensuring that the general welfare of the citizens of this country are protected, Trump should be voted out of office.
