As if things couldn’t get any more bizarre for those within the Trump Administration, today the newly appointed Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci took part in an interview with The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza. The results of the interview have left those on both the right and the left unable to decide if they should laugh or cry in horror.
While Scaramucci said numerous things which would make even a comedian seem a tad bit mental, it was one sentence which really stood out to us.
“What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people,” Scaramucci told Lizza this morning.
In addition to this shocking comment, from the man many believe may be trying to work his way to the top and supplant Reince Priebus as White House Chief of Staff, the following statements were also made by Scaramucci today:
“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock.”
“Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac. ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.'”
“They’ll all be fired by me. 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.”
“What I’m going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we’ll start over…I ask these guys not to leak anything and they can’t help themselves…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.”
It will be interesting to see how those within the White House react to Scaramucci’s rant today, as it appears that the President is fine with everything he’s been doing and saying thus far.
