Jason Miller Withdraws from Trump Communications Team – “family reasons”…

This might mean Hope Hicks takes over formally as White House Director of Communications….

jason-miller-1Palm Beach, Florida (CNN) – Jason Miller, President-elect Donald Trump’s spokesman, has decided he will not take the job of White House communications director he was tapped for just two days earlier.

Citing family reasons, Miller announced he will not continue on to the White House and will hand off his responsibilities as communications director to Sean Spicer, the Republican National Committee communications director who was announced this week as the incoming White House press secretary.

“After spending this past week with my family, the most amount of time I have been able to spend with them since March 2015, it is clear they need to be my top priority right now and this is not the right time to start a new job as demanding as White House Communications Director,” Miller said in a statement he provided to CNN, adding that he is also expecting the birth of his second daughter next month.

“I look forward to continuing to support the President-elect from the outside after my work on the Transition concludes,” Miller said, before adding that Spicer will serve in the communications director role at the White House. (more)

    After reading the tweets leading up to this announcement by Delgado (from the already linked DM article), I don’t think she is the “baby momma” in this story. It seems she is aware of a “John Edwards” like situation – possibly the cause of Jason dropping out of the new job. She tried to shame him on Twitter to drop out because he didn’t do it himself.

    Whatever the truth of the matter is, it doesn’t matter as much as what Delgado did via Twitter. Highly unprofessional, damaging to the new administration and shows she is an unstable person. She has probably done more damage to her professional career than that of Jason.

    Whatever the issue is, it could have been handled more delicately and without airing it on Twitter!

    I hope the Trump Team will disassociate with Delgado with all haste. She is a ticking time bomb.

      I completely agree. I sincerely hope that Ms. Delgado is relieved of her duties immediately after Christmas. Highly inflammatory and totally unprofessional no matter the circumstances.

        The truth hurts. Doesn’t matter who the truth teller is IMO. She didn’t accuse him she “inferred”. Would we be talking about it if she hadn’t tweeted, no. I say thank you.

    • Since no-one really knows…..yes, perhaps Delgado could have found a less public method but who is to say? Perhaps Jason was denying the charge and the Trump team believed him. This method may well have been the only way for Delgado to save Trump’s administration some future humiliation over a mistake. The one I feel sad for is his wife.

    Would you know, Sundance, are these the kind of people who are vetting the applications from outsiders? Is there any chance someone outside of this clique would get their application promoted or just sent to the ‘bin’?

    Whatever the reason the transition team can’t possible uncover every single scenario between individuals given the time frame and urgency of hiring the right people for each job. They have to interview and contact thousands of individuals figuring out who is having sex with whom is probably not on their to do list as they expect people at this level to be professional.
