Trump staffer resigns after being caught in alleged sex scandal
Donald Trump might not be in the White House yet, but his staff is already experiencing its first sex scandal.
The president-elect’s newly appointed White House communication director, Jason Miller, resigned on Christmas Eve, just two days after getting the position. He claimed it was to “spend more time with his family.”
This after people were already talking about how the married Miller was spending time in strip clubs during the campaign with Trump adviser A.J. Delgado.
When it was first announced that Miller got the communications job, Delgado was thrilled and shared her excitement on Twitter. She tweeted, “Congratulations to the baby-daddy on being named WH Comms Director!”
Miller and his wife are expecting their second child in January.
Delgado later branded Miller “The 2016 version of John Edwards.” Edwards is known not just for his politics but also for famously hiding his love child back in 2008.
She went on to say, “When people need to resign graciously and refuse to, its a bit … spooky.” She added, “Jason Miller. Who needed to resign … yesterday.”
Delgado later deleted her Twitter account and changed her telephone number.
Two days into his appointment, Miller did in fact resign. He said in a statement, “After spending this past week with my family, the most amount of time I have been able to spend with them since March 2015, it is clear they need to be my top priority right now and this is not the right time to start a new job as demanding as White House communications director.”
Some think that Miller’s relationship with Delgado is what forced his resignation, while others claim he has been considering better offers in the private sector.
