from a piece written three weeks ago: Some journalists have also raised the prospect that she might turn against Trump. Michael Wolff, the author of "Fire and Fury," tweeted a prediction on Wednesday that "Hope Hicks becomes the John Dean of the Trump White House." Dean is the lawyer who helped thwart Watergate investigators and then turned on Richard Nixon by revealing the president's role in the cover-up.

interesting observation.

As much as I appreciate Ms Hicks, I am a bit disappointed in her today.

What has she done to earn your disapproval, Mr. Carter?

Remember how Leonard Nimoy was trying, after Star Trek ended, to not be identified the rest of his life with the Spock character?  He had other goals as an actor.  Maybe it's a bit analogous?  I wish her better luck than Spo-, er I mean Nimoy had.  

Still don't know what your acronym COTDT stands for, BTW.  

Banks, I was working up a "Hope springs eternal..." comment....

"Keep Hope alive and safe in a witness protection plan" might be a way to go.

Meanwhile, the Keebler Elf flexes at Donald Trump...
Beyond belief…..If this guy had even half an ounce of self respect left he would have resigned long ago and then told Trump where to stick it. But he just keeps hanging on through every indignity Trump piles on him….truly unbelievable. And so far he hasn’t even cashed in on a new dinning room suite yet. He has to be slow as well as stupid.

I don't think I've ever believed anything a White House Press Secretary or Communications Director has to say.Going back to the first one, Steve Early, their job has always been to hide the ball and say as little as possible.

This seems overly cynical to me.  There is a difference between casting events in a light that makes the administration look good and bald faced lying and denial of reality.   From day one, with the inauguration crowd stunt, this administration has broken barriers.  And whenever Sanders utters “What the President meant to say was…” .......you know what will follow will be an untruth told with unprecedented bravado.   

I disagree with NYKnicks12 though, that doesn’t make that department a shit-show.  It’s by design.  And why whoever fills the job next will be more loyal than competent.


Bet you can't find one example.

It is just possible that he is holding on because he respects the independence of the DoJ and knows who ever Trump chooses would get the job on the promise to undermine it.
