Hope Hicks, the White House communications director and one of President Trump’s longest-serving advisers, said Wednesday that she was resigning.
Her resignation came a day after she testified for eight hours before the House Intelligence Committee, telling the panel that in her job, she had occasionally been required to tell white lies but had never lied about anything connected to the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
Ms. Hicks said that she had “no words” to express her gratitude to the president, who responded with his own statement.
“Hope is outstanding and has done great work for the last three years,” Mr. Trump said. “She is as smart and thoughtful as they come, a truly great person. I will miss having her by my side, but when she approached me about pursuing other opportunities, I totally understood. I am sure we will work together again in the future.”
Congratulations to Hope Hicks who will be leaving the White House to ‘pursue other opportunities’. To leave a career in which you are working directly with the president of the United States, you must have some amazing job offers lined up.
I’m sure this resignation has absolutely nothing to do with that fact that Hope Hicks spent the previous day being interrogated by the House Intelligence Committee for 8 hours as they attempted to squeeze out any information they could about her relationship with The Trumps and Russia.
Hope, the 26-year old former model who might be the least qualified White House staffer in the history of White House staffers, revealed that occasionally she lies in order to back up Trump’s over exaggerations and embellishments or whatever.
Yup, Hicks is simply looking for work elsewhere and totally isn’t running from the fact that she without a doubt covered up Trump’s Russian mess. I assume as she was leaving her interrogation yesterday, she walked past the room where they’re waterboarding Paul Manafort and decided to move out of the country before she’s next in line for torture.
Weird how everyone that Donald Trump surrounded himself with is either testifying in front of a grand jury or they have ‘resigned’. But nope, no Russian collusion though. Just an interesting coincidence. Weird.
Love you, Hope. If you want to work for Deadseriousness feel free to slide head first into my DMs.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Hope Hicks will be in prison by the end of the day. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
