Remember how Sean Spicer was the head of propaganda for the Trump White House, blatantly spreading lies and bolstering a suspect president? Well, after his failure to become a successful author, he’s trying to parlay his horrid reputation into a quirky career as a TV personality. And the first step for this sour-mugged jar of near-sentient mayonnaise will be competing on Dancing With The Stars, where apparently the term “stars” has gotten very liberal. Speaking of liberals! Queer Eye co-host Karamo Brown, who two days back called Trump “racist in chief,” will also be competing on this season of the dancing competition. But sparks won’t be flying over politics, because Brown is pretty stoked to get to know Spicer. In press for the show, he called the national embarrassment “a good guy, a really sweet guy.”

Uh huh.

Hear it for yourself.

Brown said of Spicer:

Let me tell you something. Sean Spicer and I have been talking. I was most excited to meet him, because the thing is that people would look at us and think that we’re polar opposites. But I’m a big believer that if you can talk to someone and meet in the middle, you can learn about each other, and help each other both grow. And so we have been chatting all day today. Like, he’s a good guy, a really sweet guy. Exactly! Karamo from Queer Eye saying, ‘Sean Spicer, nice guy.’ I know!

Twitter users responded:

Brown took to Twitter to defend himself, replying to this tweet:

However, there were some tweets he’s since deleted. Like this screenshotted response to Evan Ross Katz, whose tweet made the soundbite go viral.

In an another tweet—that has since been deleted—Brown tried to suggest he was taken out of context in the soundbite that went viral. So, here’s the full clip.

You’ll notice, the only difference is we hear the question leading into his praise of NICE GUY SEAN SPICER. And it wasn’t even a question about the infamous political puppet. It was a softball question of “Who do you think you’re biggest competition is?” Brown CHOSE to make this moment about his positive feelings about Spicer completely unprompted.

Responding to a now-deleted tweet, comedian Philip Henry responded with a thread full of spicy receipts. (Related: you should all be following @MajorPhilebrity)

As important as the Queer Eye star says it is to engage with people who disagree with you, Brown wasn’t very open to Henry’s engagement. He blocked him.

Meanwhile, Brown is back to his pro-positivity business as usual. Here’s his latest tweet.
