Trump aide named to lead White House communications says he won't take job


Jason Miller, who President-elect Donald Trump announced this week would serve as his White House communications director, said on Saturday he would not take the job.

Miller, the communications director for Trump's transition team, said in a statement that his family needed to take priority over career moves. He said he and his wife were expecting their second daughter in January. Trump takes office on Jan. 20.

"This is not the right time to start a new job as demanding as White House communications director," Miller said.

He said his duties would instead be handled by Sean Spicer, who Trump named his press secretary on Thursday, the same day Miller was announced as communications director. Trump also said in that announcement that spokeswoman Hope Hicks would be director of strategic communications.

1. Rumor is his wife and mistress are both having a baby soon, so he will be busy enough :)

3. Blessed events like this are a rite of passage with the Trump crowd.

There will be no repercussions. The media will be mute. All is how it should be...

Now, if I or any other Democrat followed this pattern, we'd be turned into a pariah, excommunicated from any public office for life, and the first words out of anyone's mouth at the mention of our name would be a reference to this event and then the speaker would spit.

For GOPpers.... It's just another day in office.

2. Awkward. You would think Trump would confirm acceptance before announcing it.

If only 'awkward' was Trump's only shortcoming.
