New York Magazine's Profile on 'Trump Whisperer' Hope Hicks Offers Some Eye-Opening Insights

Former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks resigned on February 28, 2018, roughly 13 months after Trump took office as the President of the United States. During that time, Hicks, 29, established herself as one of the most stable figures in the President's orbit. While experienced political players and powerful friends of Trump found themselves being fired, discarded, and left behind, Hicks remained steadfastly by the Trump's side, content to stay out of the spotlight as she managed the White House communications almost by herself. A new article published in New York Magazine, however, delves into the enigmatic figure's time at the White House and her eventual decision to leave.

During her time in President Trump's administration, some pundits painted her as a naive youngster, swept up in the President's wake. That may not have been the case.

It turns out Hicks' family actually has a deep background in politics:

Hicks was raised in Greenwich; PR and politics were recurring themes in her family. Her maternal grandfather, G.W.F. "Dutch" Cavender, had served in the Department of Agriculture under Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon; her maternal grandmother, Marilee Cavender, had worked at the Department of Transportation; her mother, Caye Cavender Hicks, had been an aide to Ed Jones, a Democratic congressman from Tennessee; her father, Paul Hicks, was the spokesman for the NFL. He'd once worked as an aide to Stewart B. McKinney, a Republican congressman from Connecticut, and, in the '80s, had served as part of the local Greenwich government.

Apparently, Hicks thought of resigning long before she ended up pulling the trigger...

She was branded "The Trump Whisperer" due to her uncanny ability to judge the President's moods and influence him when no one else could.

After spending so much time together, The President and Hicks developed their own style.

The article is chock-full of strange and fascinating details:

But, no matter her faults, everyone had to admit these Valentine's Day gifts were pretty sweet (if a bit strange).

But a few days later, when the end came, it hit hard.

Unlike some other figures in politics, Hicks doesn't seem to be a wholly unsympathetic figure.

Nonetheless, readers can't tear themselves away from the expose.

Now that Hicks has departed, the White House has entered a new era devoid of a "Trump whisperer." Some believe Hick's absence has influenced the departures of Gary Cohn, Rex Tillerson, and, to a degree, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. Who is next? Sadly, Hicks isn't around to figure it out.

TW: There are a lot of horrible crimes disclosed here. Violent.

Prison is a horrifying place. It is brimming with society's worse. And the people who work and patrol those prisons are living in fear on the daily. Now not everyone is pure evil but plenty are, and those who keep us safe from these people lay their loves down, probably with not enough pay. Imagine spending day in and day out with murderers and lunatics? No thanks.

We all know Murphy's Law is real. And never, NEVER say... "So what next?" That is just calling on the spirits of evil to mess with you. Life is a struggle and sadly some moments are met with sorrow then met with hardship and then misery. It's a wonder we all get out alive..... Oh. Wait.
