As we reported live, Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and professional dancer Jenna Johnson were eliminated by the judges. In case anyone forgot, Jenna stepped in for Lindsay Arnold due to a family death.

The DWTS trio of judges (Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli) as well as guest judge Joey Fatone had to weigh in on each performance by Sean and Jenna on Monday night.
After the tango, the judges gave their comments. Joey said Sean gave 110 percent but said his fluidity was “stompy” during the dance. Bruno said he tried very hard, but called it an “Argentine struggle.” Carrie Ann commended him on how much he was putting into the dance but said he was missing artistry.
Len said, about the tango, that “the best thing about it was that it wasn’t very long.” He said he didn’t like it and felt Sean was just walking around the floor. Host Erin Andrews told him it looked great when interviewing him later.
As for the foxtrot, Bruno said he was solid and consistent. He also said he was afraid that it was clunky, but that it was a good effort. Carrie Ann spoke about how he lost his step but that she loved him for putting his hear in it.
Len said, “it flowed, then it splattered.” He didn’t enjoy the dance. Joey closed it out by saying he noticed Sean was giving 110 percent and that his journey was amazing on the show.
