Yesterday, the President’s personal assistant, Madeline Westerhout abruptly left her job. A previously unknown member of the Trump team, it turns out that — almost inevitably — her departure is the result of yet another of the minor scandals that afflict the Trump White House on a near-weekly basis.
In this case, it appears that Westerhout got too big for her britches and disclosed some things to some reporters that she shouldn’t have said after one too many drinks.
Daniel Lippman at POLITICO reports that “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.”
The comments were made at an off-the-record dinner during Trump’s recent vacation at his golf club in New Jersey.
While Tiffany has been included in some larger Trump family excursions, the president has largely ignored his second daughter publicly during his presidency while promoting his other adult children to an unprecedented degree of corrupt nepotism. Until now, there have been few hints as to the reason for the distance.
But knowing the president and his obsession with other people’s weight along with his inability to view women, including his own daughters, as anything other than sexual objects, Westerhout’s remarks about the President’s view towards Tiffany ring painfully true.
Of course, the one sin you cannot commit in TrumpWorld — a White House run like a mob operation — is to go against the Family — and Westerhout’s brag that she was closer to the president than the notoriously territorial Ivanka was a fatal mistake.
