In a bombshell phone interview on CNN’s “New Day,” Trump’s new communications director, Anthony “will you do the fandango?” Scaramucci totally blamed Chief of Staff Reince Priebus for all those leaks the President keeps whining about on Twitter. Scaramucci, in a not so cryptic remark, told CNN that “the fish stinks from the head down. But I can tell you two fish that don’t stink, and that’s me and the President.”
Get out your popcorn, and get ready to rumble, folks.
Scaramucci went on to say, “If Reince wants to explain he’s not a leaker, let him do that. But let me tell you about myself. I’m a straight shooter and I’ll go right to the heart of the matter.”
In perhaps his most shocking statement, the feisty comm director actually intimated that Priebus committed an act of treason, one he would have paid for with his life in days of yon and yore.
“Those are the types of leaks that are so treasonous that 150 years ago, people would have actually been hung for those types of leaks,” said Mooch.
Wow…just when you thought things couldn’t get any more bizarre, you’ve got Trump’s team of stooges calling for each other’s death. We haven’t seen this sort of drama since Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. I say we put the whole lot in an steel cage wrapped in barbed wire, Kushner, Priebus, Scaramooch, Sessions and Trump, and let them fight it out ‘til they’re all bloody and maimed. Sarah Huckabee Sanders can be the round card girl – Z Writer Dan Bukszpan would love it!
Moochi and Priebi have been at odds with each other for a long time now. In his interview with CNN on Thursday, Moochi described their relationship as fraternal and biblical.
“When I said we were brothers from the podium, that’s because we’re rough on each other. Some brothers are like Cain and Abel. Other brothers can fight with each other and get along. I don’t know if this is repairable or not,” said the comm director. “That will be up to the President.”
As we all know in the Bible Cain slew Abel. Jeebus mamaloocha. For a guy who blathered on about how much he loved everyone in the administration, the guy’s starting to sound like friggin’ Luca Brasi.
This latest brawl was prompted by a report in Politico about Scaramucci continuing to make bank on the sale of his hedgefund, SkyBridge Capital. Moochi lashed out on Twitter about the leak of his financial disclosure form, and seemed to implicate Priebus as the source by cc’ing him.
“In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept, he tweeted Wednesday night, adding, “#swamp @Reince45.”
The truth is, his financial disclosure form is publicly available and Politico obtained it by request.
Jeebus mamaloocha, that Mooch is really a gavone.
