Trump communications director leaves to 'spend time with family' after staffer hints at sex scandal

In a surprising Christmas Eve announcement, newly appointed White House communications director Jason Miller has stepped down from his position after a Trump transition member hinted on Twitter that a sex scandal may be brewing.

According to the [link:http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/trump-loses-jason-miller-white-house-communications-director-article-1.2922711New York Daily News], Miller announced that he is walking away only two days after being appointed, saying his wife is expecting their second child and, Its clear they need to be my top priority right now, and this is not the time to start a new job as demanding as White House communications director.

In a series of tweets, now hidden from view, Trump advocate and transition staffer A.J. Delgado cast a shadow over Millers announcement, writing, Congratulations to the baby-daddy on being named WH Comms Director! before adding, The 2016 version of John Edwards. The Edwards mention no doubt referring to the ex-Democratic presidential nominee whose career was derailed by an affair and a child out of wedlock.

In a series of tweets captured by [link:http://www.mediaite.com/online/trump-advisor-a-j-delgado-deletes-twitter-account-after-cryptic-tweets-about-jason-miller/Mediaite], Delgado leveled more accusations at Miller, writing, When people need to resign graciously and refuse to, its a bit spooky, hinting that Millers troubles may have begun earlier. Delgado added, Jason Miller. Who needed to resign yesterday.

13. Apparently "bias & deception" are her Republican specialities. Tsk. Tsk.

AJ's definitely got a wicked bad case of Xmas spirit, Republican-style.

3. One staffer torpedoes another. Should we brace for more palace intrigue?

4. Can this be interpreted as the beginning of the 'insider cannibalism'?

I expect a whole lot more of this from the confederacy of dunces that surround trump. (All credit to the late John Kennedy Toole for that most appropriate connection of descriptive words.)

7. Yeah, NOTHING says 'family values' like a Trump threesome at a Vegas strip joint banging each other!

8. I'm betting he also could not pass the security background check.

For anyone who's had to fill out the government's SF-86 background investigation form, it is a TOTAL and complete bright light shined into every orifice of your personal life. Stuff you thought was w-a-y long forgotten gets dredged to the surface and put on display for the investigators to dissect and review.

So if Jason Miller had any skeleton's in his closet that would have come out later and end up embarrassing Agent Orange, his declared reason for an exit now is a convenient smoke-screen.
