Anthony Scaramucci: Trump Is Doing Damage ‘to the Fabric of Our Society’

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci has slowly become more critical of the president and that criticism intensified on Monday after his former boss attacked him on Twitter over the weekend.

Scaramucci wrote on Twitter on Monday morning, “I tried to see [the] best in [Donald Trump] based on private interactions and select policy alignment. But his increasingly divisive rhetoric — and damage it’s doing to [the] fabric of our society — outweighs any short-term economic gain.”

His tweet followed an appearance on CNN in which he was asked if he still supports Trump’s re-election bid.

“Yeah, I think that’s pretty obvious from over the weekend,” he said. “The guy’s actually dissembling a little bit, and he’s sounding more and more nonsensical, and we’re sort of anesthetized to it.”

He went on to say, “You’re fracturing the institutions and all of the things that the country stands for. That’s not worth the economic policies. That’s not worth the GDP growth, which by the way, is slowing down and the stock market’s exactly where it was a year ago.”

Here’s the clip of Scaramucci on CNN:

Trump only recently turned on Scaramucci but this weekend featured his most intense series of attacks yet on his former staffer. He wrote that Scaramucci, “was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling” and claimed that he “knows very little about me.”

The president also claimed that Scaramucci “would do anything” to come back into the Trump administration.

Scaramucci’s bend toward criticism of the president is really only a few months old. In July, he called some of Trump’s tweets “racist and unacceptable.” And in a CNN interview in March of this year, he criticized Trump for attacking John McCain, saying “you’re not scoring points with anybody” and adding “you leave people alone who are dead.”

Mooch was a doofus when he worked for the president Trump and he is a doofus now. I might not disagree with everything he says all the time, but he is still a doofus.

Scaramucci, Scaramucci, can you do the Fandango?
Who cares what this loudmouth, self-absorbed jerk has to say? He was fired for cause and that cause was his foul-mouth, presumptive ‘power’ attitude, and outright obnoxious behavior. He can take his fifteen minutes of fame and piss off to someplace far away.
