Graphic by Georgi Presecky. Conway has already claimed the “Dancing with the stars” trophy thought the season just started. Kellyanne Conway is taking her dancing shoes off of the Oval Office couch and into the ballroom. The White House counselor has joined ABC network’s hit reality dance competition “Dancing with the Stars” for its current season, along with Republican National Convention speakers Willie Robertson and Scott Baio. Conway will take a hiatus from appearing on “Today,” “Fox and Friends,” “Morning Joe,” “Meet the Press” and every single other television show to compete against 11 other celebrities for the coveted mirror-ball trophy. Professional partner Keo Motsepe said that Conway struggled in initial rehearsals. “It’s weird, I’ll show her the steps and then she’ll just break out into this alternative choreography,” he told Access Hollywood. Her first dance during the March 21 season premiere was a quickstep to a mash-up of Queen’s “We are the champions” and DJ Khaled’s “All I Do is Win.” She proceeded to earn straight fives from the judges for a total score of 20 out of the possible 40 point. Judge Julianne Hough attributed Conway’s low marks to the fact that she stopped mid-routine to check the band’s microphones for illegal wiretapping. Press Secretary Sean Spicer informed the White House press corps in his Tuesday briefing that Conway was at the top of the leaderboard. “Dancing with the Stars” costume designers have made some adjustments to their usu¬al routine, as Conway request¬ed to selectively wear gowns made out of scrap materials from Ivanka Trump’s discard¬ed Nordstrom line. “Kellyanne loves being on TV she’s just like me,” President Trump said. “Let’s just hope she doesn’t get fired,” he continued, before CNN re¬porters gently reminded him that that was a different show. When asked if by NBC’s Matt Lauer if her goal is to win the popular dancing competition, Conway responded, “the important thing to remember is that even if I don’t win, Hillary still lost.” If she is voted off the show in the coming weeks, Conway will not return to her role as White House counselor, in¬stead opting to move on to CBS’ “Big Brother.”
