White House communications director Hope Hicks was put in the awkward position of leading the response to her purported boyfriend's ouster.
CNN crime and justice correspondent Shimon Prokupecz reported, "White House communications director Hope Hicks, who has been in a romantic relationship with Rob Porter, was involved in crafting the response to the allegations of domestic abuse leveled against Porter on Tuesday."
This is not the first time Hicks has allegedly been put in an awkward situation over a lover.
When Hicks wanted to help former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Trump allegedly replied, "Why? You’ve already done enough for him. You’re the best piece of tail he’ll ever have."
Trump's comment sent Hicks running from the room.
