“Best Asshole Whisperer” Recognizes Members of the Washington, DC Political Community with the Toughest Bosses

Washington, DC (March 10, 2017) – Political staffer Huma Abedin has been nominated by a group of her peers for the “Best Asshole Whisperer” Swampy Award for 2017.

Co-founder and spokesperson Julie Germany said, “Huma got into this business to help people — just like all of us. But you can’t become a rising star in the political community without diplomatically and discretely handling a tremendous amount of bullshit. In fact, when I think about political bullshit, I immediately think of Huma.”

Abedin, who served as Vice Chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, has had a distinguished professional career that has spanned both the public and political sectors in Washington, DC.

She is also an alumna of The George Washington University, the nation’s premiere proving ground for careers in political asshole whispering. It was during her time at GWU that Abedin began working as an intern in the White House with then-First Lady Hillary Clinton in 1996.

Brad Tidwell, founder of political web development firm Infrared Productions and developer of said “Sweet! We can definitely make some fun memes out of this.”

The description of the Best Asshole Whisperer Award is “The only person in the office who can look the boss right in the eyes and calm that angry beast.” Yesterday, BitterDC announced that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was also nominated for the award.
