Trump communications director leaves to ‘spend time with family’ after staffer hints at sex scandal

Published

on

In a surprising Christmas Eve announcement, newly appointed White House communications director Jason Miller has stepped down from his position after a Trump transition member hinted on Twitter that a sex scandal may be brewing.

According to the New York Daily News, Miller announced that he is walking away only two days after being appointed, saying his wife is expecting their second child and, “It’s clear they need to be my top priority right now, and this is not the time to start a new job as demanding as White House communications director.”

In a series of tweets, now hidden from view, Trump advocate and transition staffer A.J. Delgado cast a shadow over Miller’s announcement, writing, “Congratulations to the baby-daddy on being named WH Comms Director!” before adding, “The 2016 version of John Edwards.” The Edwards mention no doubt referring to the ex-Democratic presidential nominee whose career was derailed by an affair and a child out of wedlock.

In a series of tweets captured by Mediaite, Delgado leveled more accusations at Miller, writing, “When people need to resign graciously and refuse to, it’s a bit… spooky,” hinting that Miller’s troubles may have begun earlier. Delgado added, “Jason Miller. Who needed to resign… yesterday.”

Delgado has since taken her Twitter account off-line.

This is not the first time Delgado, a Trump advocate and cable TV regular, has removed her Twitter account from view. Previously, she dropped it after insisting that Charleston shooter Dylann Roof didn’t appear to be white — leading to much Twitter ridicule.

White House aides fear Trump believes House vote against impeachment means it’s never going to happen: report

Published

A proposal to start impeachment hearings that failed in the House on Wednesday led Donald Trump to optimistically proclaim that his presidency is safe at his North Carolina rally last night. But his proclamation has some White House officials worried the president really believes he is out of the woods.

According to a report at Politico, close aides to the president worry that his comment that "we have all this [impeachment] behind us," may be based on an unfounded notion by Trump about how Congress works.

Speaking at his campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., Trump boasted to the crowd, "I just heard that the United States House of Representatives has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project I’ve ever been involved in: the resolution -- how stupid is that -- on impeachment. I want to thank those Democrats because many of them voted for us, the vote was a totally lopsided 332-95-1.”

Published

NPR reporter Tamara Keith on Thursday asked the Trump campaign if it wanted to disavow the racist "send her back" chant directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) during a Wednesday night Trump campaign rally.

In response to Keith's question, Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh not only refused to disavow the chants, but then took the opportunity to attack the entire Democratic Party for being aligned with "socialism."

"The Squad, as they call themselves, are now the leaders of the Democrat Party," he replied. "Americans don’t like it when elected officials consistently disparage this country. All the Democrats are pushing socialist ideas that are terrible for America. They are all the same."
