Only 6 days on the job, Scaramucci jumps the shark — phones CNN for half hour tirade

Only 6 days on the job, new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has already jumped the shark, and then some.

Scaramucci phoned into CNN this morning to complain, or something. It went on for half an hour, and was simply bizarre.

Scaramucci started by telling host Chris Cuomo that he’d better be nice, or Trump won’t let him back on the show.

Scaramucci then denied that he accused, by tweet, White House chief of staff Reince Priebus of “leaking” his financial disclosure forms to Politico.

Then, during the same call, Scaramucci accused Priebus of being the leaker. (Politico subsequently cast doubt on the forms having been leaked at all.) Scaramucci claimed that since reporters thought his tweet accused Priebus of being the leaker, that proved that Priebus was the leaker, because the reporter thought so.

Then Scaramucci compared his relationship with Priebus to Cain and Abel, then added, maybe the relationship isn’t reparable.

Journalist Yashar Ali posted a few clips. The entire call is below.

Scaramucci casts doubt on the US intelligence community’s determination that Russia tried to interfere in the election:

Scaramucci claims that Trump may sign, or maybe even veto, the new congressional sanctions bill on Russia. Why? Because, Scaramucci says, maybe Trump thinks the Congress isn’t being tough enough on Russia. Yeah, that’ll be the day.

Here’s the entire video. It’s half an hour long, but the best parts are in the first 20 minutes or so. It’s worth a listen.

    Luca it is. He sleeps with the fishes.

  • nikto

    We only had 6 or 7 precious days to do the Fandango.
    And now, he is gone.

    Dang! I kept putting it off. :(

  • MoonDragon

    Looks like the shark jumped higher.

  • woodroad34

    he didn’t last two weeks.

  • woodroad34

    6 days in and Scaramucci jumps the shark; 11 days in and he jumps out the window.

    Actually, a verbal Luca Brasi. Not really very bright, but willing rough up whoever the boss tells him to pound on.

  • blueeyedcuban

    Fredo… He was weak.

  • The call is coming from inside the house!

  • MoonDragon

    I see him more as Pauly or Carlo. Maybe Sollozo.

  • Demosthenes

    The Mooch is a slightly smarter version of Trump. He won’t last 6 months.

  • Badgerite

    He is really excitable. He’s just an excitable boy.

  • Badgerite

    Man. The Mooch has jumped on the fascist bandwagon big time. We have a new ‘Sonny’ character from the Godfather. Sounded like he was making CNN “an offer they can’t refuse.” Look out for the horse heads in the bed, folks.

  • doggiedaddy

    Well that escalated quickly.

  • Excellent point. Scaramucci himself noted that it’s people inside the White House who can’t stand Trump. In fact, the leaks are Trump’s own people.

  • jeffrey

    Why are there more leaks in Washington? Because there is a civil war going on against Trump and his administration. People are fed up with a wacko dictator and with his insane tweets, and they are doing everything possible to undermine Trump and his administration. Most Americans won’t stand for a dictator and a bully.

    Deplorables think Trump will deport immigrants and brown ppl from our country. They think he will get rid of Obamacare, which, ironically, will hurt most of clown car supporters. Under Obamacare, my previously unaffordable premium is now down to 90 dollars per month. My car insurance is down to 25 dollars per month (from Insurance Panda). My homeowners is $25/month too. Under Trump, expect inflation and massive price hikes across the board.

    This ship is sinking faster than Trump’s approval rating. Trump’s cover-up is getting smaller than his hands too. All these blind Trump supporters wanna do is complain about the media. Please, I’ve seen kids that whine less.
