On Tuesday, we made all the hilarious jokes about White House Communications Director Hope Hicks's testimony for the House Intelligence Committee. It was clear she wasn't going to answer any questions (she "Bannoned" them, according to one lawmaker! THAT SOUNDS PERVERTED), so we figured instead we'd try to pick Hicks a new boyfriend or girlfriend from the committee, because she is Single And Ready To Mingle now that she's gone splitsies with wife-beaty Rob Porter.

But it turns out ONE funny thing happened during Hicks's testimony, and that funny thing does not involve Devin Nunes inviting her on a date. Instead she admitted that SOMETIMES she tells what she referred to as "white lies," as part of her job working for Donald Trump:

Hope Hicks, the White House communications director, told House investigators on Tuesday that her work for President Trump, who has a reputation for exaggerations and outright falsehoods, had occasionally required her to tell white lies.

LOL New York Times. "Hope Hicks, who works for the biggest liar in the known universe, sometimes also lies." We bet!

But don't worry, she doesn't tell BIG IMPORTANT LIES like her boss the liar does:

But after extended consultation with her lawyers, she insisted that she had not lied about matters material to the investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible links to Trump associates, according to three people familiar with her testimony.

Hope Hicks went over a list of her various "white lies" with her lawyers and they all decided she hadn't told any "white lies" about Russia. GOTCHA.

As NYT reports, this came during an EIGHT HOUR session, where Hicks did not invoke executive privilege, and also did not talk about anything that happened during the Trump transition or while she's worked at the White House, because that's totally normal behavior.

We are sorry, but we are going to need to hear more about these white lies. Is Hope Hicks saying she tells Donald Trump his orange skin is pretty? Does she say he has big hands? Does she tell the president he's good at his job? Does she say he's worthy of love? Does she say YOU BET, SIR, you will end up on Mount Rushmore? Does she tell him he would have won the popular vote if three million illegals didn't vote for Hillary? Does she tell him Mexico is going to pay for the wall? Does she say he draws the best clocks and IDs the best camels in all of America?

OR! Since she wouldn't talk about anything that's happened during her time in the White House, is it possible her "white lies" are about things like the coordinated White House cover story about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting in Trump Tower with 50 million Russian spies? "Oh, those emails will never get out," Hicks reportedly said, according to Mark Corallo, the former spox for Trump's legal team who resigned, according to Michael Wolff's book, because he thought he was witnessing obstruction of justice committed in real time by Trump, Hicks, and others, who were traveling home on Air Force One from the G-20 that weekend. As NYT reminds us, Hicks was also involved in the James Comey firing.

Hicks may not have answered questions for the House Intel Committee, and she may not have found a new boyfriend there either, but she sure did sit with special counsel Robert Mueller for two days. Wonder if she told him about all her lies, and if she did, wonder how "white" Mueller thought they really were.

Ohhhhh Hope Hicks! We ask again, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

DING DONG THE WITCH IS ... quite likely to land on her feet. But for today, the New York Times reports Dana Loesch is out of a job, the latest casualty in the war between the NRA and its longtime advertising company Ackerman McQueen. But every cloud has a silver bullet lining, since Dana will have more free time now to spend on her favorite hobby. We can't wait to see which cartoon character she photoshops Klan hoods onto next. Maybe she'll branch out and start putting Nazi armbands onto Buzz Lightyear. Oh, we would be so triggered!

As one of the most visible characters on NRATV with literal hundreds of viewers for each of her fascist rants, Dana Loesch was a tireless advocate for the gunhumpers lobby, always ready to call out "tragedy dry-humping whores," threatening to "fist" or perhaps "fisk" the New York Times, and expressing her hope that the Mueller Report would die in an "AIDS fire."

With the first Democratic debate coming up tonight (join us here for livebloog, dummies!), Elizabeth Warren is out with yet another policy proposal, this time to guarantee that all Americans have the easiest possible access to voting in federal elections. A good bit of it overlaps with the House Democrats' proposal, earlier this year, to guarantee voting rights. But Warren goes even beyond that ambitious plan a bit, because she is a badass who wants elections to be fair and free from computer hacking -- and from less exotic forms of fuckery. Needless to say, her insistence that all Americans should be able to vote will be decried as some kind of power grab, because that's what it is: a plan to grab power away from the Republicans who have engineered electoral advantages well beyond their actual support among Americans. You can see the bumper stickers now: FAIRNESS ISN'T FAIR.
