Anthony Scaramucci, who very briefly served as White House Director of Communications in 2017, found himself in a Twitter feud with the President over the weekend. After years of showing strong support for President Trump, Scaramucci stated over the weekend that he feels Trump needs to be replaced for 2020.
…..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 appeared on “Bernie & Sid in the Morning” on Monday to explain why he feels the way that he does, saying the President has gone “off the rails” recently and believes it is only adding to the division within the country. He referenced his long-standing support of Trump, despite only serving in his White House role for just one week but has found it hard to continue.
“He’s very bullying,” said Scarammuci, “and bullying is as un-American as Ilhan Omar.” He feels these actions outweigh any benefit the President has had on economic policies.
77 WABC morning co-host Bernard McGuirk challenged Scaramucci on the timing of his criticism, saying that it comes at a time many are calling out the President which is why he pushed back but Scaramucci still questions why he chooses to act out the way that he does.
“You can’t win dividing the country,” said Scaramucci, and while he isn’t sure who could win in 2020, he feels that someone else has to.
