Even President Donald Trump 47 tweeted about it. At a recent launch event for their L.A.C. product line at the Bomane Salon in Beverly Hills. Lindsay shared her surprised reaction to the President of the United States, who campaigned for her partner.
"He did what's crazy, I mean the President of the United States tweets about Dancing With The Stars and asks people to vote for my partner," Lindsay said during the chat on December 10th. "Of course I'm sure it helped. And it's interesting. I mean, I think people just all had their own reservations and feelings about him. But at the end of the day it is a dance show that it's about having fun, kidnapping people from their comfort zones and teaching them to do something new, and that's exactly what we did. I was very happy. "
Although Sean is at the bottom of the jury ranking every week, thanks to the votes of the audience, he managed to make it through to the semi-finals. The support of President Trump's 67 million Twitter followers certainly helped, but Lindsay also attributed Sean and the "green ruffle" he wore for his first long-term dance.
"I think a lot of people enjoyed watching him," said Lindsay. "I think people respected the fact that he knew he was not good and he went there week after week and tried his best, was annihilated by the judges almost every week and he had a smile on his face and just had Fun . I think people like it when other people don't take themselves too seriously, and I think that really made people enjoy it all season. I think the green frill he wore helped too. He hesitated a little, but then he was on board. "
The decision to cast Sean in season 28 of DWTS met with vigorous opposition, but Lindsay wasn't convinced by the backlash. "My personality is that I just like to see people as people and my own opinion about people and what I feel about them," said Lindsay. "That's how we responded to it. And of course I knew that he would have no dance experience. It wasn't a secret. It wasn't that, oh, maybe he'll be fine. I knew it was going to be tough. And even on The first day we both joked and laughed: Oh, we still have a long way to go, but I made the show so special and what I love most is that you can really take someone who has never had dance experience and teach him to dance. It may not be the best dance anyone has ever seen, but it will. And I love to watch the progress of my partners that I had on the show, and with Sean there has been a lot of progress. I mean, I don't think people expected us to make it this far, and I don't think people expected that he could even do half of the things he did . That was really cool. "
