Former White House aide Hope Hicks isn’t happy.
Transcripts released by the January 6 House Select Committee show the Trump world insider was worried that the Capitol riot made her “unemployable.”
“In one day, he ended every future opportunity that doesn’t include speaking engagements at the local proud boy’s chapter,” Hicks texted Ivanka Trump’s chief of staff, Julie Radford.
“All of us that didn’t have jobs lined up will be perpetually unemployed. I’m so mad and upset. We all look like domestic terrorists now,” The Daily Beast reported.
Hicks’ meltdown apparently came after a tweet regarding Jan. 6th by supermodel Karlie Kloss – wife of Jared Kushner’s brother Joshua.
“Accepting the results of a legitimate democratic election is patriotic. Refusing to do so and inciting violence is anti-American,” Kloss tweeted on January 6.

The couple, both Democrats, reportedly didn’t vote for Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
Josh Kushner was spotted at the Women’s March in Washington D.C. protesting the ex-President’s election.
The text exchanges between Hicks and Radford show the two lamenting their post-White House futures.
“I am so done,” Hicks wrote about Kloss’ tweet. “Does she get how royally fucked they all are now?”
The former Director of Strategic Communications for the White House and counselor to the President left her job a week after the Capitol riot in 2021.
Hicks’ refusal to jump on the Big Lie bandwagon put her on the outs of the then-President’s inner circle.
Hicks worked closely with Trump’s daughter Ivanka, when employed at the Trump Organization and remained close with the son-in-law in-chief, Jared Kushner.
A model for Ralph Lauren, Hicks worked closely with Ivanka Trump on the ex-President’s daughter’s fashion line before being hired to work for the family’s namesake company.
Judging by a tweet Ivanka made prior to her father’s inauguration, the two apparently had a positive relationship.

But that would seemingly change after the events of January 6th.
“God, I’m so fucking mad,” Hicks texted Radford. “Not being dramatic, but we are all fucked.”
