BREAKING: Hope Hicks Resigning As White House Communications Director

Breaking news from the White House

Wow, after spending the entire day yesterday testifying in front of the House Intelligence Committee, Hope Hicks dropped a bombshell: SHE IS RESIGNING.

The 29-year old Hicks has served as the White House communications director for the last five months after a tumultuous revolving door of previous staffers in the same position. Prior to joining the White House, she was a model with no other experience. Apparently, that was enough.

She did not say what her next job would be...but I suspect it involves serving as a witness for Bob Mueller.

Someone provided this statement (saying it was from Donald Trump, sure):

“Hope is outstanding and has done great work for the last three years. 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.”

Mooch, now is your chance.

Update: Gratitude to Parker Molloy on Twitter for this lovely In Memoriam video for Trump White House staffers.
