Guide to the Political Pirouette

Practice pirouettes in a safe place
Clear of any sharp tweets or leaked emails
Know your retracted position before you start
Keep your shoulders and back covered
Don’t let your lip stick
Arrange your weight so you can always push off the back foot
Execute when ready
Focus on going up not around
Regroup after every turn
