To say that President Trump’s new Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is shaking things up would be a gross understatement. There are many who would say that it is just what the doctor ordered for a White House being strangled by a web of establishment, Democrat, deep state and media operatives.
Others will wring their hands at the chaos as if it’s admirable and right for the Democrat witch hunt to be eroding and obstructing the President in completing his agenda, but unacceptable for them to respond decisively to the ongoing malicious assault.
In a just-published interview between new Scaramucci and the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza, Scaramucci makes some colorful observations. He makes it clear that he sees chief of staff Reince Priebus as attempting to sabotage and block him from joining the White House.
He told Lizza, “Reince Priebus — if you want to leak something — he’ll be asked to resign very shortly. Reince is a f—ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac.” Scaramucci then did a Priebus imitation, saying,” ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the f—ing thing and see if I can c—block these people the way I c—blocked Scaramucci for six months.’”
He told Lizza in the moments before he tweeted “In light of the lead of my financial disclosure information, which is a felony, I will be contacting the FBI and the DOJ #swamp @Reince45.” that he need to excuse himself from their conversation. He said, “Yeah, let me go, though, because I’ve gotta start tweeting some s— to make this guy crazy.”
He also commented about Steve Bannon, saying, “I’m not Stephen K. Bannon, I’m not trying to su– my own c—-. I’m not trying to build my own brand off the f—ing strength of the president. I’m here to serve the country.”
Scaramucci repeatedly asked Lizza for the identity of the person who leaked the fact that he and President Trump were having dinner with Sean Hannity. He said, “You’re an American citizen, this is a major catastrophe for the American country. So I’m asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it.”
Scaramucci told him “I’m going to fire every one of them, and then you haven’t protected anybody, so the entire place will be fired over the next two weeks.” And: “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.”
He added, “What I want to do is I want to f—ing kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people.”
Scaramucci has been meeting with President Trump, who certainly knows what he’s going to say and in all likelihood directed it, at least in spirit. His fellow New Yorker is saying things the way Trump would if he could, perhaps with a little more color. The substance is likely all Trump. Scaramucci’s even wearing his tie Trump-style, below the belt now, a subtle reminder of who’s really doing the talking.
Nobody in the media was too upset with Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel who was similarly direct and much more caustic and mean-spirited in his actions as White House Chief of Staff. When Priebus is ushered out in the next few days, it wouldn’t be surprising at all to see Scaramucci fill that same role in the Trump White House. In essence he’s already begun.
