Hope Hicks Replacing Scaramucci

Hope Hicks, a member of President Donald Trump's campaign and administration's communications teams, will permanently take over as the new White House communications director, officials confirmed to various news outlets Tuesday.

Earlier this year, Hicks joined Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump for Shabbat dinner at their Kalorama mansion, Politico reports. As long as Hicks doesn't give any "off the record" interviews with The New Yorker, she should have some better job security.

Hicks was Trump's director of strategic communications, she also served as his press secretary at the start of the presidential campaign.

It appears the feeling is mutual.

'I said, "What do you know about politics?"

Pushing aside claims from the co-hosts that President Trump is sexist, she pointed to the ascension of both herself and Hicks.

Hicks' relationship with Trump began while she was working for Hiltzik Strategies, a NY public relations firm founded by Matthew Hiltzik, a longtime Hillary Clinton supporter.

Trump himself eventually succeeded in getting her to change her mind.

'He doesn't just put milquetoast women around him, he puts strong, very outspoken women in very powerful positions and in the first time in history we also have a female communications director, ' Huckabee Sanders said pointing to Hicks.

Anthony Scaramucci, who was named White House communications director in July, meanwhile, left the job just days after joining the Trump Administration. Scaramucci, who took the position in July, was sacked less than two weeks later. Hicks is a 2010 graduate of Southern Methodist University, where she majored in English and played club lacrosse.
