REPORT: Hope Hicks Resigned After Trump Berated Her For Stupidly Admitting She Had Lied For Him

The New York Post reports:

Before her sudden resignation announcement, soon-to-be-former White House communications director Hope Hicks was berated by President Trump for admitting to Congress she told “white lies” for him, it was reported on Wednesday night.

The president got angry at Hicks after learning she made the revelation Tuesday to the House Intelligence Committee, which is investigating Russia’s meddling into the 2016 election, a Trump ally told CNN. A livid Trump demanded to know “how she could be that stupid” to admit she lies for the president, the report said.
