Former Republican National Committee staffer, Andy Hemming reported on Thursday that he is resigning from his position as the White House communications team’s director.
Hemming’s main responsibility was finding positive ways to portray President Trump through the media, but with Trump’s daily Twitter rants and bashing of the press, it proved to be quite the challenging task.
Politico’s Annie Karni reported, “Hemming’s goal was to ultimately create more mainstream coverage about positive moments for the Trump administration on the very networks the president routinely bashes and refers to as ‘fake news.'”
Tuesday’s Trump rally in Phoenix proved to be the icing on the cake for Hemming, as Trump bashed the media and even had the crowd chanting “CNN sucks.”
Hemming has not publicly announced his departure, but CNN reported that the decision to part ways was mutual.
Hemming’s departure is just one many since the beginning of the Trump administration…
In July, press secretary Sean Spicer resigned. Then, Reince Priebus resigned from his position as White House chief of staff. Just a few days later, the new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, was pushed out of the White House.
In the mean time, this is the first removal of someone at the in the communications office since Hope Hicks has taken over this week. Which means this could be a sign that Hope is cleaning house and trying to get everyone on the same page.
What are your thoughts on Hemming’s decisions to resign, as well as the plethora of others who have resigned from their positions?
What does this mean for the future of the White House?
