Hope Hicks is out—and the Twitter memes are in

Twitter is lit.

Sometimes, honesty isn’t the best policy. One day after telling the House Intelligence Committee she told “white lies” on the President Donald Trump‘s behalf, White House communications director Hope Hicks announced her resignation.

According to the New York Times‘ Maggie Haberman, the resignation had nothing to do with yesterday’s testimony. But tell that to the internet.

Naturally, because of her high-profile, and because of the constant, unprecedented turnover of this administration, Twitter was all about Hicks’ abrupt resignation.

(See previously: Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci.)

There’s now also the possibility Trump may hire his favorite spokesperson.

(That’s Trump himself, in case you forgot.)

But perhaps some old figures will be returning?

And of course, you knew we weren’t getting out of here without this joke.

Hicks had worked with Trump since the beginning of his presidential campaign.
