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.
