President Donald Trump and his former communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, lobbed insults at each other Saturday night and Sunday morning as their relationship appears to have gotten icy since the latter left the administration in 2017.
“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…..” the president said in a tweet.
.....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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2019
Some reports have suggested that Scaramucci was brought in for the specific purpose of getting rid of former Cheif of Staff Reince Priebus and that is why his tenure was so short.
Scaramucci replied, telling his Twitter followers that Trump turns on everyone.
“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 pass the 100% litmus test. Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country,” he said.
