Hope Hicks tapped to head communications for New Fox — the parent company of Fox News

Published

on

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks has been named the head of corporate communications for New Fox, Variety reported Monday.

New Fox is the company that will remain after 21st Century Fox completes its sale to the Walt Disney Company. New Fox includes 21st Century Fox television stations — including Fox News.

This would put Hicks in charge of defending Fox News — at the same time Fox News is defending President Donald Trump against investigations by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Hicks may have legal exposure in the Russia investigations, she has been interviewed by special counsel investigators.

Hicks resigned as White House communications director 24 hours after testifying before the House Intelligence Committee about Russian collusion.

Hicks testified for roughly nine hours and reportedly refused to answer questions about her role in issuing a misleading statement about the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russian operatives.

Former FBI attorney Lisa Page on Wednesday called out President Donald Trump for once again lying about her at one of his political rallies.

On Tuesday night, Trump told supporters in Pennsylvania that Page supposedly had to file a restraining order against former FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she'd had a relationship during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump hedged his claim by telling his supporters, "That's what I heard, I don't know if it's true."

Page, however, took to Twitter to shred the president for repeating a blatant falsehood.

"This is a lie," she wrote. "Nothing like this ever happened. I wish we had a president who knew how to act like one."

Trump busted for lying about NATO in days-late response to world leaders mocking him

Published

on

President Donald Trump responded to a week-old tweet from a Fox Business personality about Canada's prime minister and other world leaders mocking him, and spouted misleading claims about NATO allies.

The president falsely claimed in his response to Charles Payne that Justin Trudeau, along with French president Emmanuel Macron and British prime minister Boris Johnson, were actually angry and not laughing about his bizarre news conference at the NATO summit.

"They were just upset that I demanded they pay their fair share for NATO," Trump claimed, four days after Payne's tweet. "Their countries are delinquent. I raised $530 Billion more from NATO countries! Thank you Charles."
