Omarosa’s New Book Reportedly Claims Ivanka Trump Demanded List of White House ‘Leakers’

Reality star turned Trump White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman has promised her new book, UNHINGED, will offer a candid account of what really went on when she was at the White House. Those juicy details include, it seems, her telling of her role in a war against White House leakers that appear to have been led, at least for the less than two weeks that he was there, by short-lived Communication Director Anthony Scaramucci. In a page of her new book obtained by The Daily Beast, Manigualt-Newman describes how she, First Daughter Ivanka Trump, and Scaramucci were all involved in the purge of leakers. “Along with his comms directorship, Scaramucci had a secondary job. He was apparently the hired hit man,” Manigault writes in the excerpt. Manigault continues on: “Very low-key, Ivanka [Trump] went around to the original Trumpers, the loyal soldiers, and asked the team to Continue reading "Omarosa’s New Book Reportedly Claims Ivanka Trump Demanded List of White House ‘Leakers’"

Anthony Scaramucci Defends Jim Acosta From Heckling Trump Supporters: ‘This Isn’t Our Best’

Anthony Scaramucci came to CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s defense after he was faced by hecklers at the Trump rally in Tampa, Florida. Acosta was reporting live from the rally, but was disrupted by the overwhelming “CNN sucks!” chants from Trump supporters. He later took to Twitter and shared a clip of a shot his camera took of the animated crowd. “Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa,” Acosta tweeted. “I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and Continue reading "Anthony Scaramucci Defends Jim Acosta From Heckling Trump Supporters: ‘This Isn’t Our Best’"

Scaramucci Slams WH Barring Kaitlan Collins: 1st Amendment Gives Reporters the Right to Ask Questions

Anthony Scaramucci slammed the White House’s decision to choke press freedoms and bar CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins from a Rose Garden press conference last week, calling it unhelpful to President Donald Trump and just plain wrong. “I don’t know this for a fact, but that probably came from the president,” Scaramucci told Jake Tapper in an interview Sunday. “He likes to be respected. He was probably frustrated at that moment. What I would do in a situation like that is I’d pull a tape of questions that Sam Donaldson screamed at Ronald Reagan and go right through the last 30 years of pool reporters asking questions that presidents probably think are obnoxious or untoward or disrespectful questions and just point out that she was doing her job.” Scaramucci, whose White House tenure famously lasted less than two weeks, recommended Collins be taken “out of the penalty box,” adding that Continue reading "Scaramucci Slams WH Barring Kaitlan Collins: 1st Amendment Gives Reporters the Right to Ask Questions"

Anthony Scaramucci: Dems Are Using Tactics ‘Right Out of Joseph Goebbels’ Playbook’

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is accusing Democrats of using Nazi tactics in their opposition of the Trump administration. Appearing Monday on Fox & Friends, Scaramucci referenced protestors who gathered outside the home of White House adviser Stephen Miller, and said that Democrats are seeking to “dehumanize” their political opponents. “The real irony is [Democrats] accuse the president of fascism, or somebody like Steve Miller [of] fascism, but the tactics they’re deploying are right out of Joseph Goebbels‘ playbook,” Scaramucci said. “You dehumanize your enemy, you disfigure your enemy, and then you create a mob support mass protest.” Scaramucci added, “Rather than arguing on policy, the merits of a debating point, they’re going full bore on the ad hominem attacks. And that turns people off.” The former White House communications director was asked how he’d handle being confronted in a restaurant in a Continue reading "Anthony Scaramucci: Dems Are Using Tactics ‘Right Out of Joseph Goebbels’ Playbook’"

CNN’s Burnett Presses Scaramucci on Trump’s Feud With Maxine Waters: ‘You Don’t See That as a Threat?’

CNN’s Erin Burnett raked Anthony Scaramucci across the coals on Monday over the feud between President Donald Trump and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) — as well as the overall decline of civility in America. The ex-White House communications director said he regrets the increased partisan hostilities across the country as of late, but said the president probably won’t ever change the way he fights his battles, and Waters is creating more public anger while refusing to be held accountable. Burnett noted that the outrage comes from both sides, noting that Trump called Waters an “extraordinary low IQ person,” claimed she threatened harm on his supporters, and then made implicit threats against the congresswoman. “Are you willing to call the president out and say that’s not acceptable?” Burnett asked. The Mooch partially acquiesced. But Burnett continued to question him when he tried to rationalize Trump’s tweet by saying he’s trying Continue reading "CNN’s Burnett Presses Scaramucci on Trump’s Feud With Maxine Waters: ‘You Don’t See That as a Threat?’"

Anthony Scaramucci Rips ‘Atrocious’ Border Separation Policy: ‘We All Know’ Trump Can Change It

Anthony Scaramucci appeared on CNN Monday morning and gave a candid interview in which he bashed the Trump administration policy of separating child migrants from their families at the U.S. southern border. Scaramucci, a Trump adviser who served briefly as White House communications director, kicked off the interview on New Day by saying: “I think the president should stop it.” “Aside from which it’s inhumane and its cruel, I think he needs to step back, stop listening his aides and his advisers,” Scaramucci said, likely referring to White House immigration hardliners Stephen Miller and John Kelly. “He’s got to step in there and end this thing because I think it’s an atrocious policy, it’s inhumane, it’s offensive to the average American,” Scaramucci continued. “It does not represent American values.” Scaramucci went on to argue that the optics of the policy aren’t good for Republican chances in the Continue reading "Anthony Scaramucci Rips ‘Atrocious’ Border Separation Policy: ‘We All Know’ Trump Can Change It"
