During former White House aide Hope Hicks’ closed-doors testimony before Congress, Democrat Jerry Nadler continuously referred to Hicks as “Ms. Lewandowski,” finally prompting a correction from Hicks.
Transcripts indicated that Hicks replied, “My name is Ms. Hicks,” after Nadler referred to her erroneously for the third time.
Following Hicks’ testimony, Democrats were reportedly frustrated with her level of cooperation.

It looks like Rep. Nadler referred to Hicks as “Ms. Lewandowski” three times. Here’s one of them, and her resopnse. pic.twitter.com/BXHMJGCvU8

Social media users reacted to Nadler’s comments, which were overwhelmingly seen as an intentional insult.
Seems like a nice guy https://t.co/9QzZUvYX7m

Nadler is an unmitigated buffoon

This is the same guy who openly admitted to ignoring Candace Owens too. So this isn’t surprising.

That’s sexist garbage. Hope was WH Comms Director before age 30 & is a senior exec at a major media corp. But of course Nadler tries to define her by gossip & innuendo – & assign her a man’s name when she more than made her own for herself 😤 https://t.co/xNqugkk9IW

Hope Hicks should have gotten up and left after Nadler referred to her as Ms. Lewandowski. And Trump should keep Nadler’s treatment of her in mind with any future witnesses. Shut this farce down.
