Hope Hicks Raged At Trump On Jan 6: ‘We All Look Like Domestic Terrorists Now’
As the MAGA-fueled attack on the US Capitol raged on January 6, 2021, then-Donald Trump adviser Hope Hicks was furiously texting, complaining that the public would now see Trump and his inner circle as “domestic terrorists” while also agonizing about her future job prospects, according to The Daily Beast.
“Hicks — who was a member of the former president’s inner circle — engaged in a texting back-and-forth with Ivanka Trump aide Julie Radford where they both expressed dismay at the long-term damage the riot was creating when it came to their reputations and others who worked at the White House,” The Beast’s Zachary Petrizzo wrote.
According to Petrizzo, the series of texts was prompted by tweets from Jared Kushner’s sister-in-law Karlie Kloss who wrote, as the riot raged, “Accepting the results of a legitimate democratic election is patriotic. Refusing to do so and inciting violence is anti-American.”
That prompted Hicks to reply: “I am so done. Does she get how royally f*cked they all are now?”
“In one day, he ended every future opportunity that doesn’t include speaking engagements at the local proud boy’s chapter,” whe wrote in an apparent reference to Trump.
And all of us that didn’t have jobs lined up will be perpetually unemployed. I’m so mad and upset. We all look like domestic terrorists now,” she fumed, according to The Daily Beast.
“The self-pity didn’t end there, with Hicks moaning that she and other Trump White House officials would be ‘unemployable’ and ‘untouchable’ after the violence aimed at overturning the election of Joe Biden ‘God, I’m so f*cking mad,'” she added, according to Petrizzo.
