Anthony Scaramucci, who has never served in the military, worries that Gen. John Kelly — who served his country for decades as commander of the U.S. Southern Command, was in Operation Desert Storm and did two tours in Iraq — has no honor for not resigning.
Anthony Scaramucci, who missed the birth of his own baby to be at a Boy Scout gathering with President Trump, calls John Kelly — whose hero son, Robert Michael Kelly, was killed in Afghanistan in 2010 — “General Jackass.”
Anthony Scaramucci, who lasted 10 days in the White House before getting thrown out for giving a disgusting, exploitive-laden interview, including how he was “not trying to suck my own c—,” called Kelly, a man who lasted not 10 days but 45 years in the military, “a bad dude.”
Anthony Scaramucci, who has spent his life pushing money — and people — around, worries that Gen. John Kelly, now White House chief of staff, who spent his life pushing not money, but Marines to heroic heights, will block his (Scaramucci’s) opportunity to push even more money around by thwarting his bid sell his stake in SkyBridge Capital to China’s HNA Group Co.
So despite disgracing himself with that earlier interview, which cost him his job as White House communications director, (for which he had zero talent), Scaramucci has again disgraced himself by now saying all of these things to Bloomberg News about a true American hero.
Whether you like John Kelly or hate John Kelly in his new role, he is a man who was brought in to clean house (the White House to be exact) of inexperienced, loud mouths like Scaramucci. And so on his first day on the job as chief of staff he did just that by kicking big shot/big mouth Scaramucci to the curb.
The Mooch doesn’t forget.
The White House soft-pedaled the disgrace by having mouthpiece to the Czars, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, say, “The President certainly felt that Anthony’s comments were inappropriate for a person in that position.” Ya think?
Then, “He didn’t want to burden Gen. Kelly, also, with that line of succession.”
But that hasn’t stopped The Mooch from continuing in that line of succession so to speak.
So, yes, it’s clear why The Mooch can’t stop the flow of bile — now against the man who has done so much for the country and so little for him. The question is why now? No, it’s not just because Hope Hicks quit the job he held for a minute himself.
Like all things Scaramucci, it’s all about the money, stupid.
According to Bloomberg News, “The sale [SkyBridge Capital to China’s HNA Group] has been stuck at the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S., which reviews foreign acquisitions of domestic businesses for security risks.” Scaramucci asks, “Are you going to block that deal?'”
But who cares about security risks from China, which hacked the personal information of over 22 million American government employees and contractors?
Not Scaramucci, not when money (his) is at stake.
Just before getting the White House boot, Scaramucci, in an interview with CNN, mused about what Joe Paterno would say about honor. “Act like you’ve been there before,” he said. “Act with honor and dignity and respect…Why don’t we do that?” Why indeed?
The man who calls himself “The Mooch” was remembering the winningest coach in college football history; a man who was fired from Penn State because of largely unreported child sexual abuse of eight boys by his assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
