In something the “family values” conservative voters will likely add to their list of things they will hypocritically ignore and make excuses for, a top Trump staffer is resigning just days after taking the job amid an adultery scandal.
Jason Miller was announced as the Trump teams’ Communications Director just last week, but has now refused the job, releasing this statement about focusing on his family, which includes his wife, who is pregnant with their second child:
“It’s 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.”
That would be just fine and dandy, admirable, even, if not for the now deleted Tweets of A.J. Delgado, a Trump transition advisor, who alleges she was involved in an affair with Miller.
One Delgado Tweet read “Congratulations to the baby-daddy on being named WH Comms Director!”
“The 2016 version of John Edwards,” Delgado wrote later, referring to Edward’s fathering a child with his mistress.
This isn’t the first time these people have betrayed the “values” voters they so desperately needed to “win” the election. Delgado and Miller were part of a group of Trump staffers that entertained media members at a Las Vegas strip club after one of the debates:
Sources said that Trump campaign senior communications adviser Jason Miller — along with female colleagues including senior adviser and surrogate A.J. Delgado and deputy communications director Jessica Ditto — went with several members of the media from networks, including CNN, NBC and ABC, to Sapphire Las Vegas Strip Club before the big night.
With “70,000 square feet of topless entertainment and serving the finest variety of cocktails,” Sin City’s Sapphire bills itself as the largest strip club in the world.
I guess what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas.
