Following Brad Parscale’s dismissal as President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign manager late Wednesday, a rumor emerged on social media that he’d been fired for dating White House counselor Hope Hicks.

The rumor was rooted in part on her past behavior. Prior to resigning from her original position as White House communications director in March of 2018, she’d reportedly dated then-White House staffer Rob Porter and had an affair with the president’s 2016 campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.

Adding to the rumor was a joke amplified by anti-Trump Democrat commentator and laughingstock Rick Wilson that Parscale and Hicks had been “spotted canoodling at Comet Pizza,” a pizzeria located in Washington, D.C.

Look:

Members of the left apparently perceived the joke as a fact — which is something that happens quite often, oddly enough — and thus the rumor and subsequent jokes and mockery blew up, particularly among the allegedly “elite” blue checkmarks of Twitter.

Look (*Language warning):

You get the picture.

Some people on both the left and right pushed back on the rumor by accusing the joke-makers of “slut-shaming” Hicks and of being sexist.

However, the leftists who chose to pursue this criticism based it on the invalid belief that Hicks deserves to be shamed for other things such as her alleged racism, homophobia, xenophobia, antisemitism, etc. …

There’s literally no evidence to show that Hope is any of those things, but considering that it certainly required no evidence to convince these “elites” that Parscale was ousted for dating Hicks, what difference does it make?

Look:

As for Parscale’s ouster, the actual evidence — you know, the facts — suggests it was based on his reportedly poor performance going into the 2020 race.

“Speculation has swirled for weeks about Parscale’s future, as Trump has fallen behind Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden by double digits in multiple polls, and as the campaign struggled to fill seats for the president’s rally last month in Tulsa, Okla.,” Fox News reported.

“A source familiar with the situation said that Parscale indeed had been losing influence as of late with other campaign officials exerting more power, including [his replacement], who joined the campaign in May as deputy campaign manager after serving as a political director at the White House.”

In tweets posted late Wednesday, the president announced that Bill Stepien would be Parscale’s replacement:

Despite being ousted from the top spot, Parscale will reportedly still remain on the president’s 2020 campaign as “a senior adviser focusing entirely on the campaign’s digital operation and data collection,” according to Fox.
