Jessica Ditto is the current White House Deputy Director of Communications.  She was a member of  Donald Trump's presidential campaign and transition teams.  
Ditto worked for Republican governors of
Kentucky Ernie Fletcher (Fletcher in office 2003 – 2007) and  Matt Bevin (2015- ) and also the  Republican Party of Kentucky. 
2016 Trump campaign [ edit ]
In September 2016, Ditto was reported to be resigning as
Gov. Bevin's spokeswoman to become deputy communications director of the Trump campaign. 
In October 2016, while working on the
Donald Trump campaign, Ditto and other Trump advisers were seen in a strip club the night before the campaign's third presidential debate.  
Also during October 2016, Ditto was a speaker for the campaign relative to the
Donald Trump sexual misconduct allegations including Karena Virginia's allegation of unwanted physical contact  and  Tasha Dixon's allegation of a pageant dressing room visit. 
Trump presidential transition [ edit ]
Following the November 8 general election, Ditto was a member of Donald Trump's presidential transition team. The transition team was a group of around 100 aides, policy experts, government affairs officials, and former government officials who were tasked with vetting, interviewing, and recommending individuals for top cabinet and staff roles in Trump's administration. She was part of the leadership staff.
Ditto was named to her White House position in early January before the
inauguration and assumed it officially at the time of the inauguration. 
In early April 2017, Ditto joined her boss
Mike Dubke in a gathering of more than thirty staffers including also Kellyanne Conway to consider ways to "brand" the first 100 days of Donald Trump's presidency.
