Scaramucci Commands Comey: 'Subordinate Yourself To The President And Zip Your Mouth'

by Rachel Dicker | 9:24 am, April 16th, 2018

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci cozied up with James Comeys new book this weekend and knocked out the whole thing just in time to give the former FBI director some friendly (?) advice on Fox & Friends.

I want to be fair about the book, Scaramucci began. I was very impressed with his upbringing. When he talks about the culture inside the FBI, I was very impressed with that.

He obviously loves President Obama. He has a right to do that, he continued. He tries to act like is he nonpartisan but is he actually very partisan. Then Scaramucci transitioned into some advice: Thats okay that you are partisan, but lets tell the American people how partisan you are and lets drop the sanctimony.

I dont like the hits on the president for another reason, he explained. You worked for the president. He was your boss. Okay. He elected to fire you. I got fired, no big deal. Im still loyal to the president. And I think that when you are the director of the FBI, you are at a certain level where he is the president. Subordinate yourself to the president, okay, and zip your mouth.

8. ROFL! Hey Mooch... If the Dumpster wants people to stay loyal to him....

perhaps he should:

1) Behave in a professional and ethical manner and,

2) Not treat subordinates like punks when you fire them. Dumpster fired Comey while he was on the road, and wanted to deny him government air for his trip home. You don't get more petty than that.

9. Scaramucci's flawed logic undercuts his whole premise.

Comey does not work "for the president," he works for the US government and he's paid by the taxpayers.

10. Whatever you might think of him, the fact is that Comey is now a private citizen

and he has the right to say and write any damn thing he wants (and btw the book was vetted by the FBI before publication).

If Trump wanted him to stay quiet then it would have been better to keep him on the payroll.

14. No person in the USA should have to subordinate themselves to any president. That's

the principle the idea of 'freedom' and 'democracy is built on.

26. It was a paean to Moochs own alcohol-fueled profane interview where he said Bannon

 

Spent most of his time sucking his own cock. Mooch is the worst and saddest travel size version
Of meat heads surrounding Trump taking their turns fellating him.

19. The Mooch is dead wrong

It is not the job of the FBI Director to subordinate himself/herself to any president. The whole idea of the FBI and DOJ is that they are Independent. They follow the evidence, work with the facts. They are not required to kneel to the Executive Branch. Anything less would make their work irrelevant, merely an enforcing arm of any president who blew into office.

Besides, of course, the media outlets that want people to watch him and see the ads.

30. He's still looking for a job

I hear fast food outlets need reliable help.

But I wouldn't put him on the counter, somebody has to take out the trash and mop floors.

I think he's under qualified for even that.
