At some point before he was brought on as Donald Trump’s senior advisor for communications on Monday, former Ted Cruz advisor Jason Miller carried out what’s quickly becoming a rite of passage for new recruits to Team Trump: Erasing all your shit-talking from the bitter Republican primary.
According to Think Progress, Miller recently deleted several tweets referencing his new boss, including five containing the hashtag #SleazyDonald, an apparent comment on Trump’s lack of honor, shamelessness, and allegedly perilous sexual hygiene.
Other since-deleted tweets reference Trump’s inconsistent political positions and his unaccredited “university.”
Miller, however, is in good company. Helen Aguirre Ferré, a former Jeb Bush advisor tapped as the RNC’s new head of Hispanic relations this month, also recently deleted a number of now-embarrassing Trump tweets.
“I haven’t done anything to eliminate what you could see in a tweet or email that you would have to see with national security clearance or less,” Ferré told Univision last week, according to The Washington Post. “That’s what Hillary Clinton did in the past.”
Gawker has reached out to Miller for comment and will update if and when we hear back.
