If perhaps you were under the impression that White House Communications Director Hope Hicks is leaving the Trump administration because she cannot take the daily BS from Donnie Babyhands, Kellyanne Conway wants you to know it’s all much ado about nothing.
Appearing on Fox & Friends Thursday morning, Conway was asked by co-host Steve Doocy:
“Was it the ‘white lies’ thing? She couldn’t take the heat?”
Conway wasted no time spinning one lie after another, which she does almost as well as her boss, the Pathological Liar-in-Chief:
“This is very simple. Hope’s been doing this for three years nonstop. It’s very simple. I think the president spoke for all of us who have had the privilege of working with Hope and getting to know her as a friend, that she’s fantastic and she has done a tremendous job for him. And as the president says, [she] will probably be back in his orbit sometime and someday to help yet again.”
Notice how Kellyanne didn’t actually answer the question? She was just getting warmed up, and decided to add this:
“Hope’s a New Yorker. She got a great family she’s close to. And she has a wonderful future and we’re all excited to see. I love her and I’ll miss her very much.
“She had the luxury of not having to come on TV often. But I think we’ll hear from her. And one day when Hope Hicks sits down to give a major post-White House interview, millions of people will tune in and I’ll be one of them.”
Donald Trump’s a New Yorker, too. Is he about to resign? Oh please tell us it’s so, Kellyanne!
As for that post-White House interview, Ms. Hicks may be sitting for yet another long interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, too. And that could be very bad news for Trump, because Hicks knows things others in the White House don’t.
So bon voyage, Hope. See ya at the grand jury.
