Another body goes through the revolving door that is the West Wing. Donald Trump has had more firings and resignations from administration members in his 2.5 years in office than any other president has had in eight. The most recent White House casualty is personal assistant Madeleine Westerhout, who reportedly quit unexpectedly, but now information has come to light that she was fired, because a reporter published her unflattering account of Trump’s relationship with his daughters. Politico: Madeleine Westerhout, who left her White House job suddenly on Thursday as President Trump’s personal assistant, was fired after bragging to reporters that she had a better relationship with Trump than his own daughters, Ivanka and Tiffany Trump, and that the president did not like being in pictures with Tiffany because he perceived her as overweight. […] Westerhout also jokingly told the journalists that Trump couldn’t pick Tiffany out of a crowd, said one of the people. “She had a couple drinks and in an uncharacteristically unguarded moment, she opened up to the reporters,” the person said. One of the reporters present was Phil Rucker of the Washington Post. Rucker is taking heat for revealing Westerhaut’s comments. Donald Trump Jr.’s friend, Arthur Schwartz, got on Twitter and blasted Rucker for “burning” Westerhout in what was supposed to be an off-the-record dinner. Interesting that Schwartz didn’t deny Trump thought Tiffany was fat, he just denounced Rucker for reporting it. Westerhout was already depicted interestingly by another reporter, in his book. POLITICO’s Tim Alberta reported in his recent book, “American Carnage,” that Westerhout was observed crying on election night because she was unhappy that Trump had won. But she found her way into a top job at the White House, having previously worked at the Republican National Committee. During the transition period, Westerhout was known as “elevator girl” or “greeter girl” because she was often photographed escorting guests to see the then president-elect at his office at Trump Tower in Manhattan. She was previously an assistant to Katie Walsh, a top RNC official who also joined the White House, only to resign just months into her tenure as deputy chief of staff. Elevator girls and coffee boys don’t do too well, apparently, in the “Age of Trump” as the Meglomaniac in Chief likes to refer to his tenure. Intriguing that Westerhout was depicted as crying when Trump won, That’s what Michael Wolfe reported that Melania did. Must have been one hell of an election night party in Trump Tower, with women crying while Michael Cohen was pondering running for Mayor of New York City and Don Junior pondered running for Governor — and of course Jared and Ivanka purportedly discussed which one of them should run for president first. Bottom line, Westerhout should look on the bright side. Robert Mueller didn’t name her in his report and she’s not headed to jail.

Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
