And she's out! Hope Hicks—the 29-year-old former model and political novice whose ex-boyfriend was recently fired from the Trump administration after being outed as an alleged wife beater—is stepping down from her role as the White House's communications director. The news comes just a day after Hicks admitted under oath to telling "white lies" in order to protect the President.

From the New York Times, who first reported the story:

Ms. Hicks had been considering leaving for several months. She told colleagues that she had accomplished what she felt she could with a job that made her one of the most powerful people in Washington, and that there would never be a perfect moment to leave, according to White House aides. ...

Multiple White House aides said that Ms. Hicks’s departure was unrelated to her appearance before the committee. They said that she had told a small group of people in the days before the session that she had planned to leave her job.

She did not say what her next job would be, and her departure date was unclear, but it is likely to be in the next few weeks.

So long, Hicks! Hope your next boss (and your next boyfriend) is less of a human barf bag than the last one.
