CNN’s John King Turns to Camera: ‘The President Thinks You’re Stupid’

CNN’s John King gave a message directly to the his audience on Tuesday, saying President Donald Trump is counting on them being “stupid” enough to fall for his numerous falsehoods. Tuesday afternoon on Inside Politics, King brought up an MSNBC interview with Anthony Scaramucci this morning to promote his new book. During this interview, the former White House communications director seemed to trivialize Trump’s penchant for lying — saying the president won’t be toppled no matter how many times critics and the media call him out for falsehoods. “When you guys are upset about it and listing all the lies and trying to explain you can’t get a tax cut done in 10 days, people are almost happy about the fact that he is a wrecking ball inside of Washington and smashing into this,” Scaramucci said. “If you want to beat the president, exposing his lies or explaining them Continue reading "CNN’s John King Turns to Camera: ‘The President Thinks You’re Stupid’"

Meghan McCain Calls Out Scaramucci for Trashing John Kelly: ‘You’re Out and He’s Still In’

Anthony Scaramucci has some pretty tough words about the man who fired him. In an interview yesterday, the Mooch slammed White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and said that he has “hissy fits.” He also accused Kelly of hurting President Donald Trump and overall White House morale. On The View this morning, Abby Huntsman brought up his criticisms of Kelly before Scaramucci said, “At some point he’ll eventually leave the White House.” “Trump?” Joy Behar asked to laughter and applause. Scaramucci continued on to say of Kelly, “I think he’s hurt the morale. People say, ‘okay, it’s personal,’ ’cause he fired me. It’s not personal. I’ve been fired before.” “It’s just observational,” he said. “[Kelly] doesn’t have the personality skillset for that job. I applaud his service to the country, 40 years in the Marine Corps, he has the personality and skillset for that job…” Continue reading "Meghan McCain Calls Out Scaramucci for Trashing John Kelly: ‘You’re Out and He’s Still In’"

Scaramucci Says John McCain Was a Role Model: ‘When I Have Rough Moments, I Think About Him’

Former short-lived White House comms director and current Trump-insider Anthony Scaramucci had nothing but praise for the late Senator John McCain this morning when he appeared on MediaBuzz to discuss the news with Fox’s Howard Kurtz. “President Trump and John McCain obviously had a very contentious relationship,” said Kurtz in an opening understatement. “But let’s put that aside on this day. McCain’s style, I was talking about a moment ago, working with Democrats, sometimes taking on Republicans including George W. Bush, having these shifting alliances — is that now a vestige of a bygone era because things are so brutally partisan, polarized?” “I certainly hope not, Howie,” Scaramucci replied. “At the end of the day we have to come back to that.” McCain’s bipartisan ways are the chief complaint of those who support President Trump and bashed John McCain. Scaramucci is saying that rather than hating the Senator Continue reading "Scaramucci Says John McCain Was a Role Model: ‘When I Have Rough Moments, I Think About Him’"

Anthony Scaramucci: Trump Would Politically Have ‘A Nightmare on His Hands’ If He Fired Sessions

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said on CNN this afternoon President Donald Trump should be more careful in not lashing out about people in his orbit he’s frustrated by. Anchor Ana Cabrera noted how bad a week people are saying Trump had, and Scaramucci agreed “it was a very bad week.” He said it’s been “an emotionally tolling week for the president, because these are very close friends” who are either flipping on him or being given immunity. Scaramucci made it clear he doesn’t see any Trump illegality in any of the news this week, saying that the comments Trump made to Fox & Friends––especially on the issue of flipping––were made in “frustration.” Cabrera asked about the loyalty issue with Trump and the people turning on him. Scaramucci said, “I think what happens if you get on the wrong side of the president he’ll light Continue reading "Anthony Scaramucci: Trump Would Politically Have ‘A Nightmare on His Hands’ If He Fired Sessions"

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’"
