Former model and White House Communications Director leaves amid a shout out from the president. For just over a year the Trump administration has seen a dramatic number of his inner circle and white house personnel walking away from the prestigious position.

A day after admitting to a Senate Intelligence Committee that she had told “White Lies” for the president. According to the White House communications office Hope Hicks is Trumps longest serving aide. She joined the clan when Trump was candidate Trump. She was a leader is decision making for the campaign and then for the administration.

According to reports, she took a verbal running down by the president and decided that she had had enough. Talk around the White House suggest she has been talking about walking for months. She admitted that she told white lies for Trump, she turned the corner and said that she has never lied about the Russian matter. The Trump scolding was due to her admitting she told “white lies.”

The president said of Hicks, “Hope is outstanding and has done great work for the last three years,' he said. 'She is as smart and thoughtful as they come, a truly great person. I will miss having her by my side but when she approached me about pursuing other opportunities, I totally understood. I am sure we will work together again in the future.”

She made the announcement and expressed gratitude to the administration.

Hicks is the former girlfriend of Rob Porter, you remember he is the guy accused of spousal abuse by both his ex-wives. Porter was formerly the White House staff secretary before being pushed out due to allegations of previous abuse.

The 29 year old former communications director had no political experience when she was appointed the post just over one year ago.

A trend of people in and around the White House has stepped away for one reason or another. Steve Bannon, the notorious racist who flipped Brietbart making it a Neo Nazi rag.

Reince Priebus, Michael Flynn, Rob Porter, Sally Yates, Katie Walsh, Tom Price, Brenda Fitzgerald, Sean Spicer, Michael Dubke, Michael Short, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sebastian Gorka, Walter Shaub, Omirosa Manigault Newman, Derek Harvey and Dina Powell. This group of Trumps inner circle are fallouts or fall guys some of them to protect the bad egg at the top of the food chain.
