Hope Hicks and Ivanka Assistant Smoked by Karlie Kloss tweets on January 6
After a crowd stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, a top Ivanka Trump aide and presidential adviser Hope Hicks fumed over tweets posted by model Karlie Kloss, wife of Jared’s brother. Kushner.
That’s according to text messages released by the House committee on January 6, which also reveal that the aide, Julie Radford, and Hicks feared the insurgency would destroy their reputations.
After the riot, Kloss took to Twitter to write, “Accepting the results of a legitimate democratic election is patriotic. To refuse to do so and incite violence is un-American. She also responded to a Twitter user who encouraged her to “tell your sister-in-law and your brother-[in]-law” answering “I tried”.
The newly released texts show that Hicks flagged Kloss’s tweets for Radford, who replied, “Unreal. She just called me about it.
Hicks then texted back, “I’m so sick of it” and added, “Does she understand how royally fucked they all are now?”
Hicks and Radford also feared dealing with the fallout from the deadly Capitol riots.
“In one day, he terminated all future opportunities that did not include speaking engagements at the local Proud Boys chapter,” Hicks wrote, apparently referring to the lame President Trump.
“And all of us who didn’t have jobs lined up will be perpetually unemployed,” she continued. “I am so angry and upset. We all look like domestic terrorists now.
Radford wrote that she “had been crying for an hour.”
The self-pity didn’t stop there, with Hicks moaning that she and other Trump White House officials would be ‘unemployable’ and ‘untouchable’ after violence aimed at overturning Joe Biden’s election
“God, I’m so crazy,” she wrote.
Radford, who was Ivanka’s chief of staff, said the backlash was ongoing. “Visa also sent me a blowing email today. Already,” she said.
“It’s not dramatic, but we’re all screwed,” Hicks fired back, while privately admitting that the resignation of Trump White House official Alyssa Farah Griffin made her look like a “genius.”
The text messages between Hicks and Radford are just a tiny part of a treasure trove of documents obtained by the House committee, which recently made many of the documents public.
Radford and an agent for Kloss could not be reached for comment Sunday night.
