I mean, come on. Look how pretty she is! A doe-eyed, unblemished ingenue who couldn’t possibly have done anything wrong because … well, look at that dress! Snow white! And she looks so graceful. Like Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis lightly sprinkled in Cheeto dust.
Why would the House ever subpoena such an angel? Unless they want to ask her which hypoallergenic leave-in conditioner works best in St. Barts or something.
Hey, The New York Times is apparently wondering the same thing.
Hope Hicks, one of the best-known but least visible former members of President Trump’s White House staff, is facing an existential question: whether to comply with a congressional subpoena https://t.co/8NXpfQvxQL pic.twitter.com/L7aWVMsIdq— NYT Politics (@nytpolitics) May 24, 2019
Um, okay. You know, in ordinary times, congressional subpoenas aren’t like invitations to timeshare seminars. They’re not really optional, unless your ex-boss is a wannabe tyrant.
What gets me is news breaks that this woman is weighing committing a crime before Congress &it’s getting framed by the NYT as some Lifetime drama called “Hope’s Choice.”— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 26, 2019
This is a fmr admin official considering participating in a coverup led by the President.
Treat her equally. https://t.co/XcNbSuU4QB
This is a good example of bias in the @nytimes: a picture of a person who is considering not complying with a subpoena is basically a glam shot, and it’s framed as a thoughtful, perfectly equal choice. https://t.co/qRHT31AsMg— Soledad O’Brien (@soledadobrien) May 26, 2019
Most existential questions have no clear answer. What is my purpose in life? What happens after I die? Is there a higher power guiding my destiny? Does my dog have a soul?— Max Kennerly (@MaxKennerly) May 26, 2019
Other “existential questions,” however, are answered by 2 U.S.C. §§ 192 & 194. Compliance is mandatory. https://t.co/QJdGfMxIA9
Complying with a congressional subpoena is the law, a legal requirement foundational to our system of checks and balances—not “an existential question.” Unless you’re talking about the continued existence of functional democracy, I suppose. https://t.co/4HL4sBPMhi— Elizabeth Wydra (@ElizabethWydra) May 26, 2019
Yeah, that’s pretty much what I thought.
