Advice from the Mooch

“I would tell him to follow the Justin Trudeau model. President Trump is very intimidated by Justin Trudeau because he’s a good looking, smart kid and President Trump is like this orange fat blob. And so he’s very intimidated by the way the guy looks. And Justin Trudeau has been very, very smart at keeping his distance from President Trump.”

— Anthony Scaramucci, quoted by the HuffPost, on what advice he would give to a foreign leader dealing with President Trump.

Scaramucci: Trump’s G7 Performance an ‘Unmitigated Disaster’

“He’s more or less been isolated by the other leaders. The French government brought in the Iranian foreign and finance ministers to discuss things without even letting the president of the United States know. … Again, his American First strategy is becoming America Alone.”

— Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, telling CNN that President Trump’s attendance at the G7 summit was an “unmitigated disaster.”

It’s Been a Rough Week for ‘The Mooch’

Pity poor Anthony Scaramucci: reportedly getting divorced, sacked from his job after a mere 10 days — and now there’s an erroneous report that he’s dead,” the Washington Post reports.

“The blink-and-you-missed-him former White House communications director is listed as deceased in the new Harvard Law School alumni directory, which arrived in alums’ mailboxes the very week that “The Mooch” became the most talked-about guy in politics. An asterisk by the 1989 graduate’s name indicates that he was reported dead since the last directory, which was published in 2011.”

Gingrich Disses Sacamucci

“I think that Scaramucci had better be a lot more careful than he has been. He obviously likes the limelight. He obviously likes being in the media. I would say right now that he’s being more pugnacious than effective. I think he ought to slow down a little bit and learn what he’s doing… If he’s gonna be that divisive, I’m not sure he’s gonna be very useful to the President. … I think Scaramucci’s full of himself.”

— Newt Gingrich, harshly criticizing White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci in a radio interview with Laura Ingraham, calling his recent actions “divisive” and “unhelpful.”
