Colbie Holderness

Colbie Holderness wrote this op-ed in the Washington Post on Feb 12, 2018 – 6 days after the Daily Mail broke the story that both she and Jennie Willoughby had been abused by their mutual ex-husband, Donald Trump Staff Secretary Rob Porter.

It was largely a response to Kelly Anne Conway’s assertion that because Hope Hicks is a strong woman, she won’t get hurt by Rob Porter, who she’s now dating.

Holderness’ point is that strong women get taken in by abusers all the time. And that also, it requires a lot of strength to survive an abusive relationship.
