Scaramucci sings praises of his successor Hope Hicks

Anthony Scaramucci has lavished praise on his successor Hope Hicks by describing her as a wonderful, dedicated and charming person.

Hicks resigned last night just hours after Donald berated her after she admitted telling 'white lies' for the president during her testimony to the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday.

But Scaramucci was quick to defend the woman who took his job as White House Communications Director when he talked about her on Hannity. 

Hicks was the by far the longest-serving communications directors of 's tenure, lasting 196 days, compared to Scaramucci's measly 10 days in the job.

Hicks was an unusually quiet and reserved White House communications director, avoiding drawing attention to herself despite serving in a job that's tailor-made for extroverts

Scaramucci told Sean Hannity: 'She's a wonderful person. She's one of the least malicious people I've ever met in my life.

'Hope, if you're watching, my agent has called me and said, 'Please, let me represent Hope Hicks. I will give her a call,'' he added.
