Trump pick backs out of White House job after affair allegations

Source: Politico

Donald Trumpís newly tapped White House communications director, Jason Miller, backed out of the job following claims that he had an affair with another transition official, according to three sources close to the Trump transition.

Two days after his appointment as communications director was announced, Miller told POLITICO on Christmas Eve that he was stepping down because the White House job would be too demanding at a time when he needed to devote attention to his family. He and his wife are expecting their second child next month.

1. I'm shocked...

...this behavior is considered unacceptable in Trump's circle? His behavior is worse!

Where Trump and Cump is concerned, not so much.

4. Let me get this right...

People on team Trump knew of their relationship, Delgado herself told people, and now she is calling him a "baby-daddy" and "The John Edwards of 2016"

He must have dumped her.

No fury like that of a woman scorned.

I don't feel sorry for her. She is a terrible person to begin with.

Edwards has returned to law after his political career ended. Together with attorneys David Kirby and William Bystrynski, he founded the law firm Edwards Kirby in Raleigh; his daughter Cate is the managing attorney of the San Diego office of the firm. Vidant Health and Pitt County, North Carolina, was the venue for Edward's 2014 return to the malpractice arena.

When you're of an ilk that cares SO DEARLY about family values - why not have more than just one family?

And what's AJ so pissed at him about? She knew he was married. This whole story is getting curiouser and curiouser. Oh well, from the White House to Domestic Relations Court for that Cruz asswipe.

14. Remember him by his worst deed:

He was the campaign manager who got Mark Sanford elected to the House after he left the SC governor's office in disgrace and without his family because of his famous "hiking the Appalachian Trail" affair.
Guess Jason didn't learn anything from that.

Googled her. Bet she runs for Vice President. Woman, Harvard law, animal rights, Cuban, swing state, working class, political operative, young, she literally checks every single box that the Republicans need.

Wonder if Ms. Delgado feels that she is justified in making an accusation that could so easily ruin lives?

Seriously, someone would have to be a serial killer to reflect poorly on this boss.
