Trump Rails Against ‘Young and Beautiful’ Lives ‘Destroyed’ By Russia Probe: ‘They Went Back Home in Tatters!’
President Donald Trump has been busy on Twitter this Sunday morning. As part of a series of holiday weekend dispatches, the Commander-in-Chief railed against what he deems to be the ruination of people’s careers as a result of the Russia investigation.
“Who’s going to give back the young and beautiful lives (and others) that have been devastated and destroyed by the phony Russia Collusion Witch Hunt?” Trump wrote. “They journeyed down to Washington, D.C., with stars in their eyes and wanting to help our nation…They went back home in tatters!”

Many on Twitter mused that the “young and beautiful” Trump was referring to was Hope Hicks — the 29-year-old former White House Communications Director who left her post in March.
Is he talking about Hope Hicks? https://t.co/oF31zZ6FK1

Maybe he had a conversation with Hope Hicks. @Olivianuzzi? Hard to imagine any other former staff member he’d describe as “young and beautiful…with stars in their eyes.” Although I’m probably crediting him with too much empiricism. https://t.co/YVyoYZVOQL

Is this about Hope Hicks, who admitted she lied for Trump routinely? This is a really bizarre tweet: we shouldn’t investigate the Trump campaign’s well-documented attempted collusion with Russian information warfare ops because it might ensnare people “with stars in their eyes”? https://t.co/6ZAhxEFLX5

Hope Hicks keeps sending you to voicemail, doesn't she? https://t.co/IGLFgSGf4J
