President Trump has hired another woman for a top position in his White House, but instead of celebrating another huge step toward equality, leftists are breaking their own rules and picking on her physical appearance.
Hope Hicks, 28, has been named White House communications director, the youngest person to ever hold the position. She is the official replacement for the quickest-ever to have the job, Anthony Scaramucci, who was gone after only 11 days.
Hicks has worked with the Trump family for a few years and served as a spokesperson for the campaign starting in 2015. Her previous job in the White House was director of strategic communications. Prior to that, Hicks worked in public relations for a New York City firm that worked with Ivanka Trump’s fashion line and was eventually hired by Ivanka to work on her team.
Later, as an employee of Trump’s campaign, Hicks was the one who decided which member of the press could speak to Trump out of over 250 requests each day. She was also responsible for dictating what Trump wanted to say on Twitter. She was named on Forbes 30 Under 30 list in January of this year for having “served as a one-woman press team for Trump's historic presidential campaign."
Hicks was criticized by The Washington Post for defending her boss against allegations that he belittles his employees.
“President Trump has a magnetic personality and exudes positive energy, which is infectious to those around him. He has an unparalleled ability to communicate with people,” Hicks said. “He has built great relationships throughout his life and treats everyone with respect. He is brilliant with a great sense of humor … and an amazing ability to make people feel special and aspire to be more than even they thought possible.”
The Post called her statement a “rejection of Trump’s entire political brand.”
But there’s one thing in Hicks’ past that enrages the Left more than her lack of political experience for the job: she was a teenage model. Gasp! She worked on a Ralph Lauren campaign and was the cover girl for several children’s and young adult novels:
How dare she capitalize on her beauty!
Leftists forwent patting Hicks on the back for accomplishing something so great for women at such a young age and jumped on Twitter to imply Trump hired her only because she was a “hot model.”
Billy Baldwin, known less for his acting and more for being the brother of angry leftist Alec Baldwin, posted what he thought was a picture of Hicks in a bikini with some “fun facts” hoping to slander her character:
By the way, that’s not Hicks in that picture. It's Hilary Rhoda. Baldwin is fake news, too.
Legal Insurrection assembled several other Twitter slams directed at Hicks and nailed the crux of the whole issue -- “All women are equal! Unless they’re hot, conservative, successful, or any combination of the above:”
