The New York Times is reporting that President Donald Trump’s longtime personal assistant, Madeline Westerhout, has resigned.

Westerhout had been with the Trump administration and served as a personal aide to the president since he came into office.

The Times story reports that President Trump discovered that Westerhout told intimate details about his family and the White House with the press during a dinner. She was immediately barred from the White House grounds and labeled a “separated employee.”

She officially resigned from her job on Thursday.

Westerhout is a College of Charleston graduate with deep ties to the Republican establishment:

According to the South Carolina Post and Courier, Westerhout landed at the highest level after acting as the “greeter girl” for dignitaries and other prospective administration workers called to visit the president-elect at Trump Tower in New York after the election.

Before landing with Trump, Westerhout had been assistant to Republican National Committee Chief of Staff Katie Walsh and interned for Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign. 

The report from the Times also indicates that former Trump administration official John Kelly was the one who sold Trump on the gatekeeping job that Westerhaut had of who meets with and talks to the president.

The left is on social media salivating for some scoop from Westerhaut. How long will it be before she’s hired by CNN or writes a tell-all book?
