The Twitter War between President Donald J. Trump and his one-time Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci continues to heat up.
The President hit back against Scaramucci over this past weekend, accusing him of warping the facts and distorting the truth about his time in the White House, just so he could remain a media darling.
“Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all-time expert on ‘President Trump.’ Like many other so-called television experts, he knows very little about me,” Trump wrote.
“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 himself then retaliated the next day, saying he’s always supported the President, but took issue with Trump’s divisive language. He also accused the President of frequently turning against his allies.
“For the last 3 years I have fully supported this President,” Scaramucci wrote. “Recently he has said things that divide the country in a way that is unacceptable. So I didn’t pass the 100% litmus test. Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country.”
Mooch Says That Trump’s Visit to Shooting Site Was “a Catastrophe”
Last week, prior to the President’s scathing tweets targeting him, Scaramucci called Trump’s visit to El Paso, Texas, a “catastrophe” during an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, and he correctly predicted that Trump would eventually respond via Twitter.
“He probably would be mad at somebody for saying that. Maybe he’ll tweet something negative about somebody for saying he didn’t do well, but facts are he did not do well on the trip because if the trip is being made about him and not the demonstration of compassion and love and caring and empathy for those people, then it becomes a catastrophe for him, the administration, and it’s also a bad reflection on the country,” he said.
