Suspense has been building all day: What could she have said
that was so terrible that it might get her canned summarily?
Despite his “Apprentice” image, Trump palpably dislikes firing
people. He’d rather let them linger and make their lives
miserable (e.g., Jeff Sessions) than pull the plug, possibly
because he understands that he has more leverage over them as
long as they continue to work for him. Westerhout sat right
outside the Oval Office too so she would know better than most
in the West Wing what he was doing and who he was talking to at
any given moment of his presidency. In other words, she would
have lots of tell-all fodder potentially.

Better to keep her on staff, contrite, and quiet than to risk
making a loquacious enemy of her by firing her — unless she said
something so terrible that there was no other option.

Per Politico, it’s pretty bad. It’s not a “leak” but it’s nasty.

Madeleine Westerhout, who left her White House job suddenly on
Thursday as President Trump’s personal assistant, was fired
after bragging to reporters that she had a better relationship
with Trump than his own daughters, Ivanka and Tiffany Trump, and
that the president did not like being in pictures with Tiffany
because he perceived her as overweight…

Westerhout also jokingly told the journalists that Trump
couldn’t pick Tiffany out of a crowd, said one of the people.
“She had a couple drinks and in an uncharacteristically
unguarded moment, she opened up to the reporters,” the person
said…

“This was an off-the-record dinner and the media blatantly
violated that agreement,” an administration official said.

Who burned Westerhout? Ed noted earlier that there’s always been
speculation about her as a leaker, partly because she came over
from the RNC rather than the Trump campaign and partly because
she was superbly positioned to watch his activities during the
day. But if Westerhout was an important leaker, it’s bizarre
that reporters would have shared her comments about the Trump
daughters and risked her getting fired. They’d be killing the
golden goose, a prime source of material for their own dishy
scoops about Trump.

Politico notes that Trump press aide Hogan Gidley was also at
the dinner but left for an hour or so to do an interview with
Fox News, at which point Westerhout supposedly began blabbing
about the Trump girls. Maybe Gidley returned to the dinner and
ended up chatting with one of the reporters to the effect of
“What’d you guys talk about while I was gone?” At which point
the reporter might have shared Westerhout’s gossip with Gidley
and then Gidley might have shared it with the White House. Per
Ed’s post this morning, some in the building had knives out for
her already due to her attempts to expand her portfolio. Maybe
Gidley was part of that.

What’s Westerhout’s move now? She’s only 29 and came to Trump
from establishment Washington, so it’s conceivable that she’ll
keep her mouth shut about what she saw in the White House and
try to catch on in some other, more traditional Republican
office. But maybe her disloyalty to Trump has now made her
radioactive to anti-Trumpers too. Who wants an executive
assistant prone to chattering to reporters about your issues
with your own children? If she’s frozen out of politics because
of her mistake, the only thing left to do might be to write that
tell-all and cash in. Maybe the White House realizes that and is
working quietly behind the scenes to get her a position with a
Republican office in Congress somewhere. Keep her on the team
and she’ll keep quiet, hopefully.

Tiffany has the IQ of a hamster. Why else would she be the only family
member that's never seen in public with her father?

In her position it would be that she had an unguarded moment and would
likely have more of them, rather than what she said in last unguarded
moment.

To do what she did is to betray the NATION and the office of the
Presidency. Anyone around the President who can't maintain the decorum
and the needed secrecy of the Presidency is a risk to NATIONAL SECURITY
and the lives of persons surrounding the President.


They put people in PRISON just for talking about a CIA person being in
the CIA.... in this case the job was more demanding and required more
contact with the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES than the CIA spies have.



So if talking about a spy is worthy of PRISON TIME then talking about
the PRESIDENCY and the presidents family friends and advisers who see
the PRESIDENT regularly must be at least as egregious.
