Dancing With the Stars has an all-star cast this year, including Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown, The Bachelorette’s Hannah Brown, and Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek, whose role was foretold when he appeared on the show back in 2012 as a dramatized version of himself on Don’t Trust the B...in Apt. 23.
Controversially, the cast also includes former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who worked in the White House for six months before his resignation.
Karamo, the Queer Eye reboot's culture expert, said, “I was most excited to meet him,” when asked by Access Hollywood about the controversial Spicer. “People would look at us and think we're polar opposites but I’m a big believer that if you can talk to someone and meet in the middle, you can learn about each other and help each other both grow” he said.
He went on to call Spicer "a good guy, a really sweet guy."
Spicer famously claimed that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.”
He’s also the person who said that Trump’s inauguration crowd was “the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period,” despite the empty landscape seen in photos, wore an upside down American flag pin and at one point during his tenure and reportedly began hiding in the bushes so he wouldn’t have to talk to Trump. Perhaps he can turn that into a dance move.
In the past, Karamo has clashed with his Queer Eye cast mates about politics. He and Jonathan van Ness went head to head when Karamo met with Vice President Mike Pence’s wife Karen’s chief of staff.
Now, Queer Eye fans are unimpressed with his comments. One writer posted the Access Hollywood video on Twitter only to have Karamo block him immediately.
