In Vulgar Interview, Scaramucci Lashes Out At Bannon And Priebus

White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci attacked fellow senior aides Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus in a wild interview published Thursday by The New Yorker.

Scaramucci called up New Yorker writer Ryan Lizza after Lizza tweeted out the Scaramucci was having dinner with President Trump with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Bill Shine, and Melania Trump.

The White House’s newly minted communications director accused Priebus of leaking this information to Lizza, and 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.”

    It reads like the Mooch had a couple martinis too many.

    • True, but then, the leaking MUST be stopped and if this tantrum is the first step in squelching the defiance of the leakers, it is lang overdue.

  • Ho Hum

    I can’t imagine that President Trump is pleased by this obscene outburst. It makes it look like he is hiring idiots. How does a Dir of Communications not know that unless you tell a reporter your comments are “off the record” they will be printed obscenities and all. His comments about Bannon are especially egregious since Breitbart played a big part early on in advancing the Trump campaign and Bannon of course was behind that good press. Last year when Breitbart was pushing Trump Mooch was calling Trump a “political hack” on FOX Business.

    Whomever it is in the White House that believes any reporter is their friend needs to get fired ASAP.

      Assuming that the story is true or even accurate.
      These days I just can’t be so sure any more.
      This must have been what it felt like to read Pravda in the old Soviet Union in 1990.

      • True.

        Very valid point. Sobriety has its benefits! 😉

    Whoever did the leaking might find a horse’s head in his bed.
