Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci has been perhaps the loudest critic in the batch of former Trump aides who have turned on the president, and he intensified his criticism in a recent radio interview, saying that officials should consider invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.
Scaramucci told radio host Bill Press that Trump is a “despicable train-wreck of a human being,” and said that he hopes to create an “off-ramp” for people who supported Trump in 2016 but will vote differently in 2020.
At another point in the interview, he called Trump, “a full-blown demagogue,” adding, “It’s almost as if Roy Cohn had a baby with Joe McCarthy and they made Donald Trump together, and he’s out there running the country into the ground.”
When asked if he agrees with George Conway that officials should consider invoking the 25th Amendment, Scaramucci said he agrees with Conway “a thousand percent.”
“I don’t understand how elected public servants of the longest-standing Republican Democracy in existing world history, a 243-year-old Republican Democracy, could have this sort of full-blown insanity on display and not act,” he added.
Scaramucci went on to say that the lack of action “has to really make you worry about the state of the country and the overall cowardice of leadership. Because what is the calculation that they’re making now?”
The former White House communications director is among the many former aides who have found themselves on the receiving end of the president’s twitter feed. He’s also trashed former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman.
