From CNN:

Trump was not consulted when Hicks and several other aides drafted a White House statement defending Porter, and he is under the impression that Hicks has let her romantic relationship with Porter cloud her judgment, a source familiar said.

In the aftermath, Trump has told associates he feels that Hicks put her own priorities ahead of his. However, there is little to indicate that Hicks' standing is in jeopardy.


Yeah, Kelly was completely blameless here.  Blame the woman.  It's pretty appropriate given the topic.  "I only hit you because I love you and want you to be a better wife Communications Director."

Trump blaming someone else for his shiat? Teh hell you say!
 
2018-02-09 01:28:22 PM  
So rather than bringing on a guy who had some shady crap in his past, which I am going to assume they had some idea what it was about, it's the woman who decided to date him after he was already in-house. Not the fact that they, you know, hired a wifebeater who had provisional security clearance and access to lots of confidential documents, but he was loyal, dammit!

Poor Hope Hicks. She never had a chance once the FSB Academy started exclusively recruiting blondes with weaponized bladder technology.

I guess Hope wasn't putting out for her president.  That'll teach her.

2018-02-09 01:38:10 PM  
Well, guess she is no longer the daughter/work-wife.

So, who do you all think will be out first, Kelly or Hicks?
 
2018-02-09 01:38:24 PM  
Brilliant idea Trump, piss off Hope Hicks, the person that handled all of your email communication during the campaign and transition.  It's not like you have anything to hide from those periods, right?
 
2018-02-09 01:38:34 PM  
Just wait until Trump's base finds out that Porter and Hicks were romantically involved and they  aren't even cousins.
 
2018-02-09 01:38:39 PM  
I thought she was banging Corey Lewandowski.  Is she just working her way through the staff?

Maybe her terrible taste in men could be fixed if you didn't hire the pieces of shiat in the first place?

Does Trump really have a choice here but to blame the woman?

If he starts saying guys that beat their wives are bad, then people might start saying "But didn't your wife accuse you of raping her?"

I will say it's probably poor form as a press secretary to release anything without running it past the principal, but if we're being honest she's a fraud and has no idea what a press secretary is. She's apparently there to snag herself a connected man but keeps choosing poorly.
 
2018-02-09 01:41:55 PM  
Its like a pride of lions or an FLDS sect. The impotent alpha male gets jealous of ANYONE cavorting with the females around him and starts exiling left and right.

Wait, so It's her fault that he couldn't run the simplest of background checks which would have revealed these domestic violence charges?

So much funny in this thread.

More because this administration is a laughingstock than because of individual wit, but, still.

You skipped the most important part here. It's not about the country, but about Trumpster McDumpster.

winedrinkingman: Sounds like Steven Miller wants Hope Hicks out of the way too.


He hates Latinas because they wouldn't sleep with him in high school.  And Hicks has bagged both Lewandowski and Porter (at minium).  I'm guessing she spurned him like every other woman he's ever met.

Suffice it to say, she's got abhorable taste and judgement in men (including Trump).  Still doesn't mean she's to blame for this one.

And someone who doesn't have the power to declare that person without a security clearance can work in the White House. Even Kelly doesn't have that power.

Trump will never fail to alienate everybody around him.  It's hilarious to see.  You'd think right now he would be keeping everybody happy and secure so they don't go off running to Mueller to blab out of sheer spite.

That, or Trump is so paranoid that now he's pushing people away outside of his family as a sad attempt to go into 'battle stations' mode.  Either way, it's still incredibly pathetic.  On the bright side, Hicks might get a chance to get out of this sphere of madness and maybe have a normal life.....once she's out of prison in forty or so years.

It couldn't just be that the man who has spent 50 years frittering away his father's real estate portfolio through a series of failed business ventures is incompetent.

No, it must be that he's playing 3-Dimensional Space Chess while we're all playing Fart Candy Land.

"The president feels that Hope Hicks has allowed her romantic relationship with Porter to really cloud her judgment and her decision-making..."

Was hiring and/or firing Porter Hope's decision to make?  I thought that was Kelly's decision.  That doesn't make a god damned lick of sense.
 
2018-02-09 01:50:23 PM  
As usual, it's always about him and what he wants.

Remember, 63 million farking idiots -- Republicans -- elected this stupid asshole president.

They are all equally to blame. Everyone in this White House from the President down has a massive boner for Donald Trump (including the ladies). It's the single point of qualification for working there.

Suffice to say, the are all from the President down lunatics you would not want to be stuck next to at a dinner party.

Literally the only person in the White House without a boner for Trump is the First Lady, she's got an expense account instead but I think she's starting to realise that's not enough.

They originally tried to pin this on Lewandowski. The WH has provided zero indication that Porter is even remotely involved in the issue.

The issue being, of course, Porter's history of committing domestic violence.
