Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has just been fired by President Donald Trump, so what should his next career move be? He should appear on “Dancing with the Stars,” of course! Tillerson joins a long line of White House staff members to leave the Trump administration over the past year, including Omarosa, who notably entered the “Celebrity Big Brother” house. (She made it all the way to the finale, coming in fifth place.) Do YOU think Tillerson should follow in Omarosa’s footsteps and join a reality TV show? Vote now in our poll below.
Tillerson’s Secretary of State position will reportedly be filled by CIA Director Mike Pompeo ahead of important talks between the United States and North Korea. “Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday while making the shocking announcement. Tensions between Tillerson and Trump began growing last year when the media reported that Tillerson called the President a “moron.”
“Dancing with the Stars,” ABC’s perennial reality TV competition series, returns for a sports-themed 26th season on Monday, April 30. The show is expected to have an “entirely new dynamic” as Andrew Llinares (“The X Factor”) will serve as the new showrunner. Llinares previously produced over-the-seas hits “Britain’s Got Talent” and “Pop Idol,” which were later translated for US audiences in the forms of “America’s Got Talent” and “American Idol.”
In addition to Tillerson, we also think former Press Secretary Sean Spicer would make a must-see “DWTS” cast member. Politicians have graced the dance floor several times before, including Presidential candidate Rick Perry (12th place on Season 23) and majority leader Tom DeLay (13th place on Season 9). One of Trump’s ex-wives, Marla Maples (8th place on Season 22), also starred on the Emmy-winning reality show. Who else is on your “Dancing with the Stars” dream cast list?
