New White House Comms Director Declares War...On White House

  • 9 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
New White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is kinda angry.

You should probably take a moment to read this story from Ryan Lizza in the New Yorker about new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci and his all-out declaration of war on Chief of Staff Reince Priebus:

He was getting more and more worked up, and he eventually convinced himself that Priebus was my source.

“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” [Pols emphasis] The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been worried about the dinner because he hadn’t been invited. “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said. He channelled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’ ” (Priebus did not respond to a request for comment.)…

…Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. [Pols emphasis] “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.” (Bannon declined to comment.)

He reiterated that Priebus would resign soon, and he noted that he told Trump that he expected Priebus to launch a campaign against him. “He didn’t get the hint that I was reporting directly to the President,” he said. [Pols emphasis]

There’s too much in this story to even summarize adequately. Just make sure you read the entire thing so you have some reference point for when “the Mooch” lights the White House on fire.

  1. Hey.  The Mooch himself said he doesn't shiv people in the back.  He's a front-stabbing kinda guy.

    Question I gave is who's going to play him on SNL?

    1. They ought to try to persuade Michael C. Hall (the guy who played Dexter).  I don't know if he does comedy, but he's been really good in everything I've seen him in.

  2. " . . . the best and brightest in the country . . . "

    I don't know how much more of "American Heroes Week" I can take . . . 

    . . . God bless  help save America!

  3. Mr. Scaramucci should be careful about firing people at the White House. If he is successful in his war to remove Messrs. Preibus and Bannon hopefully he realizes he's just moved up two spots on the list because in Trump's world everyone is fired eventually.

  4. After you read that New Yorker piece, I think you'll agree, for communication skills Moochie's almost as good as #TwoCorinthiansScoops?!? . . . 

    . . . can't wait to hear this guy's speech to the Boy Scouts!!
