Beloved former White House press secretary Sean Spicer was asked about a Washington Free Beacon report on his advancing to the next round on ABC's Dancing With The Stars and, thereby, owning the libs.
Fox News anchor Shannon Bream quoted Free Beacon senior writer Andrew Stiles:

America's libs, who have been thoroughly owned since Trump's election victory in 2016, have whined constantly about the superiority of the so-called "popular vote," a meaningless metric by which Hillary Clinton might have won the presidency. And yet the libs can't accept the fact that Spicer's fate on Dancing With The Stars is ultimately determined by the people, as opposed to unelected "experts."
Spicer said he was humbled by the support he has received from the people.
"Half the vote comes from the judges and half comes from the people. That's been the case for 28 seasons. I'm honestly just truly humbled that people are taking the time on Monday nights at eight to vote for me," Spicer said. "I've worked hard every single day to go out there and try to get better and I think that I'm making progress."
"There's no question that among the other people left on the show, I'm not the best," Spicer said. "But it's not set up for that. It's set up to say the judges score you on your quality and the viewers get to decide whether or not they think someone's making progress, that they're having fun, that they want them to continue for whatever reason. And I'm just truly humbled that people are saying ‘we want you to continue on' when I'm clearly not the best guy."
The show's judges are reportedly "fed up" with Spicer and the popular support that has allowed him to continue in the competition.
"There are really great dancers being sent home, but that is part of our show. It's always been the audience and the judges' perspective. So I'm not—I can't be mad at it, but it's frustrating," judge Carrie Ann Inaba told Cosmopolitan.
Despite outrage from the judges and the libs, Spicer continues to earn support from voters, including President Donald Trump.
