Jason Miller, managing director at Teneo, is out after he posted obscenity-laden Tweets directed at House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler following last week's testimony of Hope Hicks, ex-White House communications director, before the panel, according to the Daily Beast.
The former Trump campaign aide called the New York Congressman a “fat f---" who should “take a long walk off a short pier” for being “obsessed with attacking innocent Hope Hicks.”
Miller is a dear friend of the now Fox executive VP-communications and chief communications officer.
“I have parted ways with Teneo by mutual consent and look forward to formally announcing my next move in the coming weeks,” Miller said in a statement. “Teneo is an incredible firm and without a doubt the premier CEO consultancy on the planet. They have always been great to me and I’m proud to have called them teammates for the past two and a half years.”
Miller, who was Trump’s communications director during the transition, also called Nadler “Mr. MuffinTop” and “fat and nasty.”
He has deleted his Twitter account. Miller was senior communications advisor for Ted Cruz's presidential run before switching to Team Trump
Trump has long referred to Nadler as "Fat Jerry." The Congressman has been a long-time adversary of Trump dating back to his real estate development days in New York.
Doug Band, who was President Clinton’s chief counsel, and Declan Kelly, ex-Financial Dynamics CEO and economic envoy for Northern Ireland for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, co-founded Teneo, which fancies itself as a global CEO advisory firm.
