Hope Hicks, former White House Communications Director under President Trump, was interviewed by the House Judiciary Committee this week.
Hicks was the first from the president’s close circle to appear before the committee on Wednesday to testify about no-former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation into whether there was obstruction of justice during President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
During the hearing, Committee Chairman called Hope Hicks “Ms. Lewandowski” THREE times. Hicks and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who is married, were rumored to have an affair during the 2016 campaign.
“Yeah. Ms. Lewandowski, I think, in reading this – “ Nadler said during the time, resulting in Hicks cutting him off, “My name is Ms. Hicks.”
“I’m sorry, Ms. Hicks,” Nadler responded. “I’m preoccupied.”
I’m sorry, but I’m having a little trouble believing this was simply an innocent slip of the tongue. It seems more like an intentional smear against Hicks.
The internet tore into Nadler for his behavior.
It’s always nice to see the party of feminism, of empowering women, showing some respect to a strong, successful woman who happens to be on the other side of the aisle… oh wait.
Can you imagine the outrage if the Republicans did this to a Democrat? For instance, if someone “accidentally” called Kamala Harris “Ms. Brown.”
But there’s no double standard, right?
