Fox News host Sean Hannity discussed the departure of Hicks with Rivera and former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci on Wednesday, denouncing the media for its “despicable” treatment of the President Trump confidante.

“The media has blown that up into something that it never was,” Hannity said of the reported leaking of Hicks’ comment in her Intelligence Committee testimony that she told “white lies” on behalf of Trump.

“It’s pretty despicable how they’ve treated her,” Hannity remarked, noting how the media delved into the aide’s personal life and how cameras followed Hicks to her apartment and car.

“They cut her up like muggers,” Rivera agreed, pointing out that Hicks was a “trusted, loyal friend” to the president.

He noted that the 29-year-old helped “mold” the president into the winning candidate that he became but, in her time at the White House, has been “whittled down, worn down.”

“She will be sorely missed. I lament this. This is bad news,” Rivera added, echoing similar praises offered by  Scaramucci.

“They like rolling people like Hope in broken glass to see if she’ll break,” Scaramucci said. “She’s made out of steel so obviously she won’t break.”

He went on to praise Hicks as a “wonderful person” and “one of the least malicious people” he has met.

“She’s dedicated. She’s charming,” he added. “She’s thoughtful and at the end of the day, she’s going to have an incredible career” ahead of her.

“We can’t overlook the fact that she was remarkable for her age,” Rivera said, describing Hicks as his “lifeline” to the president. “She was a steady presence.”
