LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: In the riveting drama of Donald Trump's criminal trial, one figure stood out: Hope Hicks. MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell dissected Hicks' testimony, unraveling a narrative that not only sheds light on her role but also epitomizes the era of denial that characterized the Trump White House.

From the onset, the MSNBC host painted a vivid picture of Trump's attempts at intimidation in the courtroom on 'The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell'. However, the real focus of his scrutiny lied with Hope Hicks, whom he described as a pivotal figure in the Trump saga.

A tale of two women in the Trump era

O'Donnell juxtaposed Hicks with another young woman, a paralegal working diligently behind the scenes, highlighting the stark contrast between dedication to justice and blind loyalty to power. While the paralegal toiled in obscurity, Hicks basked in the limelight of privilege and influence.

"The courtroom was a tale of two young women," O'Donnell observed, "one described her dedication to a difficult job done honorably... and the other was Hope Hicks."

O'Donnell delved into Hicks' testimony, revealing her casual relationship with the truth and her unwavering loyalty to Trump, even in the face of undeniable evidence. O'Donnell exposed the extent of Hicks' complicity, quoting her infamous email advocating for the "deny, deny, deny" strategy.

"Hicks did a lot of lying in her testimony," O'Donnell remarked, shedding light on her role in perpetuating falsehoods to shield Trump from accountability.


The narrative reaches its climax with O'Donnell's scathing indictment of Hicks and those like her, who enabled Trump's rise to power.

"We had a monster in the presidency, not because of Donald Trump, but thanks to people like Hope Hicks," O'Donnell declared.

In the end, O'Donnell leaves viewers with a haunting question: "Why didn't Hicks quit?"

Hope Hicks: From trusted advisor to key witness

According to New York Times, Hope Hicks, originally plucked by Donald J Trump from a job at his daughter Ivanka’s clothing business, rose to become one of his most trusted advisers, eventually serving as the White House communications director.

Despite lacking political experience, Hicks navigated the tumultuous world of Trump's campaign and administration, fiercely defending him. However, tensions arose when text messages emerged showing her criticism of Trump after the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack. Now, at 35, she finds herself in the spotlight again, testifying in Trump’s hush-money trial, her testimony shedding light on her role within the Trump campaign and administration.
