Lawrence O'Donnell Tears Hope Hicks Apart: 'The Most Incompetent WH Comms Director in History'

by Joseph A. Wulfsohn | 6:48 am, February 13th, 2018

MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell slammed White House Communications Director Hope Hicks for her handling of the abuse allegations of her boyfriend Rob Porter. O’Donnell began by mocking White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway for insisting that there was nothing to worry about regarding Hicks and her relationship with Porter because Hicks is “so strong.”

“Rob Porter’s former girlfriend just wasn’t ‘strong’ enough. That’s why he physically abused her,” O’Donnell reacted. “His two former wives just weren’t ‘strong’ enough. That’s why he physically abused them. That’s why he punched Colbie Holderness and gave her that black eye. Because she wasn’t ‘strong’ enough. That’s the Trump White House position on why no one has to worry about Hope Hicks — because she’s ‘stronger’ than the women Rob Porter victimized.”

He insisted that Hicks has always gotten “very special treatment” from President Trump, the Trump family, and from the press. He then played a clip of Hicks greeting a White House reporter with what he called “social kissing,” something he said he has “never seen” in the White House, the Senate, or any professional setting in Washington.

“That’s the kind of special attention and special treatment that Hope Hicks is used to,” O’Donnell continued. “And that’s part of why she’s been mostly protected up til now in the news media — even though she is without question the most incompetent White House communications director in history.”

O’Donnell then invoked a passage from Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury where he wrote that Steve Bannon called Hicks “dumb as a stone” and blamed her incompetency and unprofessionalism that led to the report of her affair with the married Corey Lewandowski during the campaign. He also slammed Hicks for co-authoring Chief of Staff John Kelly’s initial statement on Rob Porter when he called him a “man of true integrity,” which O’Donnell called “one of the most false and most stupid written statements ever issued in the Trump White House.”

“Hope Hicks has demonstrated in every way possible in her personal and professional life in the last two years that she is an utterly incompetent professional who would never be employed in a White House — could only be employed by the most incompetent president in history,” O’Donnell said. “But it is this Hope Hicks who the White House holds up to the world as being immune to the possibility of physical abuse by a man she is dating. Because you know, ‘strong’ women are immune to this.”

1. Conway says Hicks is a strong woman so she won't be abused by Porter. Porter is a large man...

physically. Photos in the Oval Office of him standing next to trump show that he's got at least two inches in height on trump and even more on Kelly.

And he is not thin, bordering on hefty even, probably around 250 lbs or more, so for con woman Conway to blather that Hick's is too strong to fall victim to physical abuse from Porter is just more of her alternate facting.

His two ex-wives and girl friends have related how terrified they were when Porter manhandled them and put his weight on them, not to mention the slugging.

Kelly Anne Conway is lying bullshit artist.

4. It's the strong women who get black eyes first.

Saying no, or not having the same opinion. God forbid you want out cause it's not working for you.
Strong isn't a safety net, but a dead warrant to unstable humans.
