Sean Spicer is meeting with the William Morris Endeavor talent agency today to discuss representation after he exits the White House, according to a source familiar with the matter. William Morris is the same agency that sold Dancing With the Stars, which has expressed strong interest in Spicer.

  • What's at stake: A talent agent at a major agency says "there's a big deal in" Sean Spicer after he exits the White House, with between $250-400k as a network contributor and the possibility of seven figures for a book if he's "willing to reveal things."
  • Why his TV money isn't higher: "I can't imagine somebody pays over 350 or 400 for him," the agent said. "I don't think there's competitive value in keeping him off the other guys' air for $1 million."
  • Any issues? The agent described him as "somewhat tainted" because in the agent's opinion he treated a lot of major network talent badly. "This guy certainly knows what's going on in the White House but the question is the extent to which he's willing to talk about it."

Joe Biden's presidential transition office will allow lobbyists to help shape his potential administration, but will require them to receive a waiver to participate if they engaged in lobbying activity in the last twelve months.

Why it matters: Presidential transition teams are instrumental in establishing a new administration, and the rules that govern them are often a template for the ethics guidelines that the new administration imposes after the inauguration.

President Trump's advisers feel the president needs to outright condemn far-right extremists and white supremacy during his rally tonight in Minnesota.

Why it matters: Trump sent shockwaves during the debate for telling the far-right Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by."
