Two years after being unceremoniously kicked out of the White House, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer returned to America’s TV screens on Monday night in his debut on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

Twitter had plenty to say about Spicer spinning around in a salsa routine, from cracks about his heinous outfit to somber criticism of ABC’s decision to whitewash the reputation of an ex-White House staffer who repeatedly made false statements and lashed out at journalists on President Donald Trump’s behalf.

People were traumatized by Spicer’s blinding neon green shirt (complete with ruffles) alone:

Others reminded the Twittersphere that Spicer had used his podium to falsely insist that Trump had the biggest inauguration crowd in American history, refer to Germany’s concentration camps as “Holocaust centers” and boost Trump’s infamous border wall (along with the lie that Mexico would pay for it), and that Spicer’s appearance on the show was an effort to get the country to forget all that:
