Remember the post I did a couple of weeks ago about Hope Hicks, Trump’s rumored White House girlfriend? She was just named Interim White House Communications Director. According to The New York Times, she will help the president find a permanent person for the job.
The Times says,
Ms. Hicks, 28, already is considered one of the most important people in the president’s communications orbit and has the most sway over who in the news media gets interviews with the president. Her current title is director of strategic communications.
Ms. Hicks was a spokeswoman for Mr. Trump during his presidential campaign and at the Trump Organization.
Ms. Hicks is close to the president, and also close with Mr. Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, and Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka.
Ms. Hicks, who grew up in Greenwich, Conn., will temporarily fill the vacancy left by Anthony Scaramucci. Unlike Mr. Scaramucci, who kept a high profile during his 10 days in the position, Ms. Hicks has long been a hidden hand, staying behind the scenes and outlasting other administration staff members.
Yes, she knows Mr. Trump’s “rhythms”, and he views her as one of the few people around him truly looking out for him.
What does the Mooch think? Scaramucci expressed his support for Ms. Hicks on Twitter.
What do you want to bet she ends up staying in this “position”, so to speak.
