Newsroom readers have thoughts“She tells Trump how great he is.” “Does Hicks realize that she is not a contestant on ‘The Bachelor’?” Hope Hicks resigned one day after reports claimed she told “white lies” for President Trump, but it’s unclear what about. Newsroom readers have some theories.

During a closed-door testimony, White House communications director Hope Hicks reportedly admitted her job has sometimes required her to tell “white lies” on the president’s behalf. The admission has sparked questions and concern. Newsroom commenters believe: “Lies are lies” no matter how big or small.
