The Mysterious Hope Hicks, Donald Trump’s Right-Hand Woman

Hope Hicks graduated from SMU six years ago. Now she’s Donald Trump’s press secretary. How, with so little experience, she wound up in that job is a bit of a mystery. This GQ story about that mystery is worth reading, if only for the opening scene:

I wanted Hicks to help me understand just how all this had come to pass, how a person who’d never worked in politics had nonetheless become the most improbably important operative in this election. But she declined my request to talk. Instead, she arranged something more surreal: I could talk about her with Donald Trump, in front of her.

I’ll say this for her: she’s got a great name.
