“Vote for Sean Spicer on Dancing with the Stars. He is a great and very loyal guy who is working very hard,” Trump wrote in his tweet.

Well, Spicer was a contestant. On Monday evening’s program, Spicer was eliminated from the reality dancing competition.

After Spicer lost, Trump decided to delete his tweet encouraging his own fans to vote for him, and instead replaced it with one that congratulated the former press secretary.

“A great try by @seanspicer. We are all proud of you!” Trump wrote.

The deleted tweet was noticed, however, and many on social media wondered what was going on. Was Trump so flabbergasted by Spicer’s loss (on a non-important program, at least in terms of national affairs) that he had to cover up the original endorsement? Or was he trying to hide the fact that everything he endorses lately seems to lose?

Some Twitter users express their theories, while others just flat-out mocked the president for his choice and deleted tweet…

Trump has tweeted and then deleted a number of posts on Twitter, sometimes over spelling errors, and other times due to embarrassment. Sometimes, however, Trump has deleted tweets for more disturbing reasons — including to save face after seemingly endorsing the use of violence to deal with political adversaries.

In one shocking example, Trump deleted a tweet in which he cited a Breitbart article. The Breitbart link was an interview with the president, in which Trump appeared to endorse his supporters getting violent with others who oppose his presidency.

“They “don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad” for others, Trump said.

Trump deleted the tweet after a mass shooting in New Zealand resulted in 50 Muslims being shot and killed by a right-wing zealot.
