Don’t expect to see an extremely familiar elder stateswoman in a glittery pantsuit busting out a lively fandango on season 456 of Dancing With The Ugh, This Show Is Still On?
Hillary Clinton has turned down an invitation to compete on the z-list celebrity tv dancing show. You have to wonder, did she laugh in that scary manner of hers when she got the call? Or was she totally insulted to be asked? Granted, she lost bigly, but only political lessers do DWTS!
For Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the mirrorball trophy is no consolation prize. In the new issue of Us Weekly, a Dancing With the Stars source reveals producers asked the 69-year-old politician if she would be interested in strutting her stuff on season 24 of the ABC ballroom competition. Says the source: “She said no.”
“HAH!” at that blunt answer. In actuality, she probably said “Are you for fucking real? I just went through all that bullshit and you think I’m going to torture myself further by shaking this hot polyester ass on your sad little shitshow? That’s some trumped-up, trickledown BULLSHIT. Lose my number!” Michelle Obama feels you, Hil. The most missed FLOTUS in American history also reportedly passed when asked. Too bad for ABC, because that lady has moves.
Hillary will miss out on competing against some illustrious-ass figures. International Business Times says that the rumored contestants humiliating themselves for Tom Bergeron this season will be Mr. T, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, current Bachelor Nick Viall, demure pop sensation Erika Jayne, and someone named Normani Kordei.
Speaking of moves, it’s obvious what led the producers of DWTS to think that Mrs. Clinton would be a good fit for their show. Her avant-garde take on “The Macarena” at the 1996 DNC still has them talking. Check out that smile. She was LIVING for her gig that night, and serving them amped up and bobbed businesswoman presidential wifey realness.
