Hope Solo

“Hope Hicks has now announced that she is resigning as Trump’s communications director. This comes just one day after she told the House Intelligence Committee, in a nine-hour closed-door session, that she was occasionally given to telling ‘white lies.’ In the moral universe of the Trump White House, her sin could not have been the lying; it could only be the admission.” David Remnick on the resignation of Hope Hicks. (In media circles, there’s been a lot of conjecture about what triggered the Hope Hicks departure. My take: Her parents heard she was dating Rob Porter and said, “That’s it. You’re coming home.”)
