These days Anthony Scaramucci sounds more like a scorned lover then the former White House Communications Director. On Monday the emotionally fragile entrepreneur appeared on CNN, with an ambitious though convoluted scheme to gather all the former Cabinet members of the President to apparently change the outcome of 2020.
“I’m in the process of putting together a team of people that feel the exact same way that I do. This is not a ‘Never Trump’ situation; this is not just screeching rhetoric. This is OK, the guy’s unstable, everyone inside knows it, everyone outside knows it. Let’s see if we can find a viable alternative,’” he said on CNN’s “New Day.”
Adding, “Moreover, I’ve got to get some of these former Cabinet officials in unity to speak up about it.”
While the Mooch did not name names, one thing seems clear, just like the President’s other former admirer, best selling conservative author Ann Coulter who also suddenly turned on the President, for no other apparent reason then being ignored by the big fellow.
Rumor has it that the President did not return the Mooch’s excessive calls to the White House switchboard, plus the fact that 11-days as Communications Director, may have finally dawned on the 55-year old political consultant, that his brief political career in the big leagues is finally over.
However, that hasn’t stopped the Mooch from declaring he thinks the President is unstable, whacky, even unbalanced.
“I predict in middle or late fall there will be a trove of people that will come together in unity to say this is what’s going on. This is how the person’s acting. This is why there’s nobody inside the White House he’s taking any advice from,” Scaramucci said.
The on-again, off-again love affair seems to have soured.
The President who always has an ear towards social media, responded to Scaramucci’s latest ploy for attention, with two simple words describing his harebrained scheme, calling him a “nut job.”
Adding, “Anthony Scaramucci is a highly unstable ‘nut job’ who was with other candidates in the primary who got shellacked, & then, unfortunately, wheedled his way into my campaign,” he said on Twitter. “I barely knew him until his 11 days of gross incompetence-made a fool of himself, bad on TV.
Trump continued, “Abused staff, got fired, wrote a very nice book about me just recently. Now the book is a lie? Said his wife was driving him crazy, ‘something big’ was happening with her, getting divorced. He was a mental wreck. We didn’t want him around. Now Fake News puts him on like he was my buddy!”
The President, perhaps adding insult to injury tweeted out a video of the Mooch praising him
“Nobody ever heard of this dope until he met me. He only lasted 11 days!”

Scaramucci once a regular on Fox moved over to CNN in announcing his plan to “offer Republicans a viable candidate and you also have to offer them an off-ramp,” adding that while it’s “tough” to support the President, “you want to be loyal” to the party.
Don’t be surprised that before the 2020 election rolls around, the Mooch will once again be making those midnight phone calls to the White House switchboard.
