Hope Hicks Leaving White House….

The New York Times is reporting Ms. Hope Hicks is resigning from her role as White House Communications Director to seek opportunities in the private sector.

This doesn’t come as a surprise considering 29-year-old Ms. Hicks was/is romantically involved with Rob Porter, the embattled White House Staff Secretary who was swamped in a controversy of accusations of abuse against him by former spouses earlier this month.

Hope Hicks was initially candidate Donald Trump’s personal aide, and one of a very small group organized within the initial presidential campaign headed by Cory Lewandowski.

Together with Lewandowski, Hope Hicks, Dan Scavino Jr., Michael Cohen, Michael Glassner, Brad Parscale and Jared Kushner were the team who powered through the political machine to win the GOP nomination and later the presidency.

According to the Times: “Ms. Hicks had been considering leaving for several months. She told colleagues that she had accomplished what she felt she could with a job that made her one of the most powerful people in Washington, and that there would never be a perfect moment to leave, according to White House aides.”  Her exact departure date is unknown.

(NYT) […] “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.”

As communications director, Ms. Hicks worked to stabilize, to some extent, a fractious press department of about 40 people who were often at odds with one another in 2017. She maintained one of the lowest public profiles of anyone to ever hold the job, declining to sit for interviews or appear at the White House briefing room podium. That mystique added to the outsize attention she received.

“I quickly realized what so many have learned about Hope: She is strategic, poised and wise beyond her years,” said John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff. “She became a trusted adviser and counselor, and did a tremendous job overseeing the communications for the president’s agenda including the passage of historic tax reform. She has served her country with great distinction. To say that she will be missed is an understatement.” (Link)

              I completely agree, Charlotte. If I was PDJT, I would take a good, long and hard look at who is advising his son Don Jr., Jared, Hope, and others to just talk with these clowns for hours on end…yet the real criminals have avoided it. Is it PDJT’s General Counsel? Who is it that is giving such poor advice? I suggest PDJT search out some advice from wiser counsel…

                Like ole Rush said earlier today – everyone said Flynn didn’t lie about anything.
                BUT if they asked what color his car was and he said it was red – they would check the manufacturer’s stated color which said it was SCARLET.

                Thus you LIE Mr. Flynn. You lied to the special counsel.

                I am getting more and more frustrated by the day.

      Confirmation bias – the tendency to look for evidence that supports our preconceived notions and importantly, to discount evidence as it really is (i.e., avoid truth). We have only the information we have been presented by the media, press releases and internet. I’m not buying that John Kelly has anything to do with Hope Hicks leaving…and as for Josh Earnest coming to this White-house team: dreamer!

        @G. Alistar: Can you imagine the exploding heads everywhere if Michael Flynn would return as soon as he is exonerated.
        It’s a thought that’s stuck in my mind believing Michael Flynn will return. He is the master planner taking down the deep state together with Admiral Mike Rodgers.
        It would be a dream come true for me. 🙂

      I have been thinking the same thing oldskool. Apparently Kelly has been lowering security for a number of people including Jared. I forget who it was, but someone was warning about the generals cutting PDJT off from all those who are loyal to him. I hope that is not what is going on, but this isn’t good.

    This is the way I look at it. No one expected the bitterness and Trump Derangement Syndrome to go on after he was was elected. I am 64 and have never seen a President nor his team treated the way our POTUS is treated. Hope has been there now a year. She is 29 and her life is not her own. She can’t move in any direction without the scrutiny of the MSM, Rabid libs etc. Every move questioned, every look, every word. I wonder how many death threats she has received. Maybe she just decided that after a year, it was time to take her life back.

      Really??? No one expected this with communists ensconsed in almost every department, in control of the mass media, and much of the social media. They might call themselves otherwise, but make no mistake, their policies are of the totalitarian variety. That President Trump and his assistants have been able to Win so many battles, still amazes me.

      Remain strong, alert, stout of heart, and keep ready for the bloody fights ahead. There are trillions of $$$ at stake for the globalists and there is marxist triumph for the communists. Neither will win. We are too many and too engaged. Sundance has been leading the way, along with many other faithful leaders on the internet.

      With respect, Kaste668, your “awakening” is just what President Trump needs. And lots of Americans just like you; you haven’t looked around and seen the devastation attempted against Americans and the American Republic. Including the worst — economic devastation.

      There have been many of us cringing and crying and investigating and screaming and whatever else we could do for the last 8 years to wake people up to the vast dangers. Much of it insidious; much of it plain sight — but it is hard for Americans to imagine that any American would act like this.

      The more Americans awake, the more Americans shocked, the better the outcome will be.

    I suppose that when one is in the close orbit of the Trumpet, as President, they are perhaps pushed to extend the envelope, and succeed beyond what was thought possible. For some, they reach the upper limits of their capabilities and get released, or tap out. Others may decide that they’ve experienced the ‘magic’ and prefer to move on, perhaps to something less intense. And everything in between.

    Straight ahead, Hope!

    Then she didn’t deserve to be there to begin with. 3 years does not make for a lifelong, oh so, so, so loyal to Trump employee.
    She clearly, had to have known about Porter. I blame her for a bit of the hits the White House took. As a woman, I sense her resigning has a bit to do with him. Perhaps they fell in love and she’s willing to believe him instead of his ex’s, knows it would look God awful to continue to see him and perhaps a bit of Mueller bullying her. She’d had enough.
    So long.
