BABY DADDY: Trump Communications Director Jason Miller Resigns After Coworker Lobs Adultery Charge

If all you wanted for Christmas was the first Trump team sex scandal, unwrap this from the New York Daily News:

Donald Trump’s inner circle was thrown into turmoil Saturday when his newly-named White House communications director resigned after a transition team staffer posted cryptic tweets suggesting he’s a philanderer.

Jason Miller announced that he won’t be joining the Trump administration just two days after he was tapped to lead the White House communications team. Miller said in a statement that he wanted to spend more time with his family.

“It’s clear they need to be my top priority right now, and this is not the time to start a new job as demanding as White House communications director,” said Miller, whose wife is expecting their second child.

But AJ Delgado, a senior advisor in Trump’s transition team, posted several tweets hinting that Miller was at the center of a sex scandal. Congratulations to the baby-daddy on being named WH Comms Director!” she wrote in one now-deleted tweet. “The 2016 version of John Edwards,” she wrote in another, referring to the disgraced ex-Democratic senator who fathered a child with his mistress.

Delgado has now deleted her entire Twitter account.deltweet

  • Kruhn

    They say back home that fish die through their mouths. This might be the first Administration that dies through its mouth. Twitter made Trump. It could destroy him.

  • Natty Enquirer

    Something tells me A.J. Delgado is about to be deleted as well.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Considering his boss Trump’s well known and checkered sexual history and the IOKIYAR attitude, why did he quit? Now I’m enjoying the chaos it caused but considering other people have survived wearing diapers & going to hookers, and the height of assholery shown by Scott DesJarlais (badgering his mistress to have an abortion to save his marriage while touting his anti-choice credentials), it’s like why quit?

    • Mike C

      Pussygrabbing for me, but not for thee.

    • Todd20036

      I’ve wondered that too. Trump is a rapist and is incestuous.

      So this guy has a mistress. Big whoop

      • BobSF_94117

        Perhaps he’s too normal…

        • Gerry Fisher

          His scandals take too much attention away from the boss.

      David “Diaper Man” Vitter survived a senate seat, but we the state said NO to him for governor. Not surprised if he ends up with a Trump position, somewhere.

    Can this also get an Infighting Is Funny tag? They’re already eating other.

    • William

      Miller looks like he could feed an army.

    • B Snow

      Yes, please. I saw her on Chris Hayes’s show before the election and she was, for want of a better word, deplorable. Lovely to see her delete her account. Now if only her boss would follow suit.

  • bkmn

    I hope AJ is prepared to face the wrath of the Trumpthumpers. This will not be the last of the Trump admin scandals, expect many, many more.

    • Veylon

      I’m going to go out on a limb and say that scandal-ridden staffers are a feature, not a bug. Trump wants to be a king (emperor?) and that last thing any strong ruler needs is strong subordinates. What a strong leader needs is a screen of weak subordinates that can be sacrificed at will, but get, in exchange, untrammeled feeding at the public trough. Trump would much rather have the media amplifying venal gossip than talking policy.

      • bkmn

        Distraction is a feature, not a bug.

        • Furface

          With this crew it’s a requirement; perhaps a necessity.

    • The Return of Traxley

      For starters, no one can tell them that she’s not an illegal Mexican who stole a god-fearing white man’s job.

      Second, they’re going to scream that she seduced him with some shameful Mexican flirting.

      Third, they’re going to say that calling herself AJ means she’s really one of them transsexuals.

      Wait for it…

      I guess she grabbed him by the pussy. Lol.

      I am 50/50 on if Hair Gropen-fureur will respond to NY Carl P. And Carl’s Michelle Obama ape comments, as well as his president Obama comments, all in the last 2 days. When even ever and forever wrong Bill Kristol calls for Trump to denounce Trump NY chair, it will be interesting to see if Trump deflects, ignores, lies, responds, or supports the racism heavy comments.

      I am glad an ever growing number of Trump voters are starting to realize they may lose healthcare, social security, etc. Behind the scenes, Ryan and a Texas chair already have the draft bill done to gut social security, with cuts and vouchers starting in 12/2018. So much for if you are over 55 and that righty lie. I have seen enough to “I did not think they would actually do that…” and “I am starting to regret voting for you…” messages. I know Michael Moore on Lawrence O’Donnell said not to laugh at them, as we will need them in 2018 and 2020 (if we live that long.)

      I am even seeing some moderate religious nuts who are saying Trump is the Antichrist. Now, both sides say it about the president. First I heard it, it was about war criminal, Iran negotiating before being eelecte, iran contra Reagan, but that is because of my age.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        I don’t see Trump denouncing it. Too many Trumpeteers agree with it and that may be the one thing that keeps them happy with him.

        I’m still going to be really harsh on Trump voters. A few of these assholes were so grossed out by the sheer incompetence of Bush Jr., they voted for Obama (which I will grudgingly give small credit to them for) but then they relapsed into assholery of voting GOP because they wanted to make minorities feel like shit again when they thought it would be safe for them economically to do so. Now they realize Trump is going to rip THEM off too and his batshittery is going to tank the economy and raise prices at their pwecious Walmart.

        I don’t mind playing the “get on board the train to sanity” game with them but they need to have it pounded really hard in their heads that stupid issues like needing a zillion guns instead of a few dozen, demanding everybody says Merry Christmas, creepy uteri obsession, and being proud one sunburns easily doesn’t mean shit. Because I don’t want another goddamn cycle of 8 years sanity, then 4 or 8 years GOP batshittery with the Dems constantly just dragging us back to square one instead of us actually getting anywhere. They’re the reason I still want the blue states to dump the red states so they can progress every single damn time instead of being dragged back by forgetful bigoted assholes.

        • Guest

          I have no sympathy for Trump voters. I would hope they get hurt to stop being stupid, but it will hurt us too.

          • FAEN

            I have zero sympathy for them either. Zero.

          • Steverino

            The irony is, programs like Social Security and Medicare (and the ACA) will be compromised much more easily and quickly (legislatively) than marriage equality, which would require another Supreme Court vacancy (in addition to the current one) to be replaced by a conservative, and even then it would require one of the liberal justices to vacate that position. So yes, the pain would be felt first by everybody, including Trump voters, whereas for one of our important issues, marriage equality being possibly compromised is “iffy,” and in the future. I don’t think even FADA, if passed, and challenged, would pass current SCOTUS constitutional muster.

        • The Return of Traxley

          There will be no response from Chéz Shitgibbon. The media will delight in reporting a sex scandal but they’ll soon be drowned out by Kellybeast and Sean “Seizureman” Spicer telling us that Jason “Shit-For-Brains” Miller made a small mistake, he’s aplogized, and has been forgiven by White Jesus. Also, we all need to respect his privacy at this difficult time because his family needs to heal.

          And the media will skink back into their corner, the democrats will shrug and go out for coffee, and the Trumpanzees will cheer and praise Miller for being such a godly man.

        Why cant you poor losers just shut the f&^k up and let the man do his job. I could care less that one of Trumps employees got some on the side. He got caught and did the right thing, resigned. He didn’t continually lie, over and over or blame it on Comey or fake news.
        What health care did we lose, Obamacare? Bronze package, family of 3, $931 per month, $5000 deductible. Sorry but Michelle does resemble a gorilla and her husband the worse POS to ever see the WH.
        Trump has done more for our country in the last 2 weeks, than Barry did in 2 terms.
        You dems should get on with your life, or is that what your doing? Either way your childish behavior is embarassing. Enjoy the next 8 years asshole!

        • Grumpy Old Man

          Conservatives promote the idea that Democrats should
          hang their heads in shame over people like Larry Flint, a publisher of pornography, if such people reveal that they vote Democratic. But political parties can’t control or be responsible for those who vote for their party’s candidates. What parties can controlis whom they endorse to run under their banner for any public office.
          And the Democratic Party doesn’t promote people like Larry Flint for public office. Contrast that to the kinds of people the Republican Party regularly selects for positions of leadership in their party, people
          like :

          Senator John Ensign (R-NV.) confessed to serious cheating on his wife with a staffer and caught paying hush money to the husband, his chief of staff.

          Gov. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), confessed to serious cheating on his wife after leaving his state unsupervised for a week.

          Senator Larry Craig (R-ID.), caught in a gay sex sting operation in a Minn. bathroom.

          Senator David Vitter (R-LA), found to have been a client of prostitutes in D.C. & Louisiana.

          Rep. Mark Foley, (R-Fl.) forced to resign when he was found to be having inappropriate communications with male pages.

          In Connecticut, the holier-than-thou Republican
          party chose the mayor of one of the state’s largest cities as its candidate for the U.S. Senate. If Joe Lieberman had caved in to Republican demands in the year 2000 that he not run for relection to the senate at the same time that he was running for the vice presidency, then our nation would have had a Republican Senator from Conn., named Philip Giordano at least until he was sentenced to serve his 37 year sentence in Federal prison as a result of the FBI investigating him for financial shenanigans and discovering in the process that this crooked, disgusting
          Republican office holder had been repeatedly molesting two pre-teen little girls related to his prostitute-mistress (in the mayor’s office among other places).

          Bob Packwood, Senator (R-Ore.), resigned in 1995 under a threat of public senate hearings related to 10 female ex-staffers accusing him of sexual harassment. William “Wild Bill” Janklow was promoted to many high offices
          in very conservative South Dakota, including the 27th and 30th Governor, 25th Attorney General, and the United States Congress. He was only removed from office when he was forced to after being convicted of killing someone with his car while speedy through a stop sign. ( The
          superintendent of the state highway patrol, reported at his trial that Janklow had 16 traffic stops by troopers during his last term as governor, but was not ticketed due to “respect for his authority” and out of a “fear of retribution.”)

          But why did the Republican Party select this man to run for so many high offices in its name? In 1955, at the age of 16, he was convicted of the sexual assault of a 17-year old woman. As a juvenile offense, this conviction carried little weight under U.S. law.

          However, in 1966, while working as the tribal
          attorney for the Rosebud Sioux, Janklow–aged 27–was accused of raping his children’s 15-year-old babysitter, Jancita Eagle Deer. Adult sexual offenses being more grave than this earlier recorded exploit, Janklow
          used his capacity as head of reservation legal services to stave off the (illegible) of formal, federal charges. He then resigned his position and left tribal jurisdiction.” . . .

          (Janklow may be the only known sex offender and accused rapist in living memory to have occupied a U. S. governor’s office).

          Trump can have Reince strung up and bled like an animal being slaughtered and the Trumpthumpers would be happy. His supporters do not care about the economy or their own future. They want to burn down the whole country.

        • Guest

          No, no president has had a chief of staff tossed to their death. Good grief. Now family members have persuaded presidents to fire or push out or suggest a staff member leaves. Nancy Reagan comes to mind with Don Regan, chief of staff (spelling of his last name ?)

          • Dazzer

            Fun – and entirely true – fact: The guy who ghost-wrote Don Regan’s autobiography used to write bestiality porn in the Mid-West. His best-seller was a book called Throw Momma to the Dogs.

      I don’t know. Vladimir doesn’t really mind the racist nationalists; they help prop up his reign.

      • Grumpy Old Man

        Breitbart is already branching out to the UK.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Sort of related in an oblique way, it’s about how one other leader of the new Nazis has interesting ties with Russia:

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/12/20/meet-the-moscow-mouthpiece-married-to-a-racist-alt-right-boss.html

    “Nina Kouprianova is not a member of the racist alt-right. At least, that’s what she’ll say when you ask her. “I am not a member of any movement,” Kouprianova, who was born in the Soviet Union, recently told The Daily Beast via email. She added that she was “sympathetic” toward movements that “challenge the dominant and globally oriented post-Liberal ideology,” but white nationalism—that fracturing of the U.S., resulting in a white ethno-state that would salve the wounds of American racists—is not for her.

    Still, the track record, both personally and professionally, of Kouprianova—who also goes by the nom de plume Nina Byzantina—casts a pall over her denials. This is, after all, a woman who elected to marry Richard Spencer, the longtime lodestar of American white nationalism and progenitor of the term “alt-right.” While the two are currently separated—as Spencer told The Washington Post, his recent work has taken a “toll” on their relationship—Kouprianova hasn’t publicly distanced herself from the views of her husband, a man who has kept neo-Nazis enthralled with his views and who has expressed continued admiration for Vladimir Putin.”

    So why is she important? Because later in the article, it says,

    “Yet Kouprianova’s connections with the alt-right don’t end with her marriage to the movement’s most prominent face. If anything, Kouprianova may play an outsize role in the internationalization of Spencer’s movement—especially as it pertains to Russia, which Spencer views, bizarrely, as the “sole white power in the world.” In addition to her prominent Twitter persona—offering the types of
    ironic barbs in defense of Kremlin machinations familiar to anyone who’s recently dealt with high-level officials from Moscow—Kouprianova has devoted her
    efforts to translating the works of Russian political philosopher Alexander Dugin.

    If Dugin’s name is at all familiar, it’s likely due to his neo-fascist screeds, posited as geopolitical analysis, that have begun swirling international trends. As Spencer is to the alt-right, so, too, is Dugin to the modern incarnation of “Eurasianism,” a geopolitical theory positing Russia as the inheritor of “Eternal
    Rome” and one of the primary ideological bulwarks pushing the Kremlin to
    carve eastern Ukraine into the fanciful entity of “Novorossiya.”

      BBC: Vesna Vulovic, an air stewardess who survived the highest ever fall by a human being after her plane broke up at 33,000ft (10,000m), has died aged 66. Vulovic was working on a Yugoslav Airlines Douglas DC-9 on 26 Jan 1972 when a suspected bomb brought the plane down among mountains in Czechoslovakia. According to investigators, Vulovic was trapped by a food cart in the plane’s tail section as it plummeted to earth in freezing temperatures. The tail landed in a heavily wooded and snow-blanketed part of a moutainside, which was thought to have cushioned the impact.
      State TV in Vulovic’s home country of Serbia said she was found dead in her apartment in Belgrade. The cause of death was not immediately known.

      I’m betting she fell off a foot stool …

    Meanwhile, the Trump and GOP attitude is, “Fuck the law, stop us if you can, but you can’t.” From sex scandals to blatant corruption to rampant law-breaking to what could actually be defined as acts of treason, the kinds of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ warranting immediate impeachment…and the Republicans can’t even be bothered to care.
