Scaramucci fires back at Trump's tirade: 'You turn on everyone and soon the entire country'
President Donald Trump started hurling out insults at Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci on Saturday night after seeing him on television talking not too fondly about the president.
Scaramucci must have said something the president really didn't like because he went on a long rant about his former employee. Scaramucci appeared on Bill Maher's show just one night ago.
"Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all time expert on “President Trump.” Like many other so-called television experts, he knows very little about me.....
.....other than the fact that this Administration has probably done more than any other Administration in its first 2 1/2 years of existence. Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it’s not for being the Mooch!"
Scaramucci, not to be outdone, didn't take very long to respond to the president, saying he just couldn't support Trump anymore. He doesn't think Trump is good for the country.
"For the last 3 years I have fully supported this President. Recently he has said things that divide the country in a way that is unacceptable. So I didn’t make the 100% litmus test. Eventually he turns on on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country."
We have to admit. That response was pretty good. Scaramucci, even though he was let go by Trump, didn't start badmouthing his ex-boss when he left the White House. It took a very long time for him to do so. That makes Scaramucci's comments more credible. He's not just saying these things because he's disgruntled, he actually thinks Trump is doing wrong by the country.
Many of Trump's ex-employees in the White House have said the same thing about Trump, including several members of his cabinet. The only people Trump seems to keep close and not turn on are his daughter and close family members.
Scaramucci likely sent a message to current members of the administration who are weighing whether or not to keep supporting him come time for his re-election. When Trump loses the White House, you can bet that many members of the Republican party will turn on Trump, as well, and pretend they never supported him.
