Scaramucci disinvited from Florida GOP fundraiser for bashing Trump's 'racially charged' attacks

The Palm Beach County GOP disinvited Anthony Scaramucci from addressing its annual fundraising event after the short-lived former White House spokesman criticized President Trump’s “racially charged” statement that four members of Congress who are women of color should leave the United States.

“He suggested the president’s comments were racist and that he was becoming a racist. Our board was infuriated,” said Michael A. Barnett, the Republican Party chairman in the county, home to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago winter getaway.

“We believe the tweets were not racist, the president is not racist and that Scaramucci’s comments were unfair,” said Barnett, who is African-American.

Scaramucci couldn’t be immediately reached. Barnett made his comments to POLITICO on Thursday morning after emailing Scaramucci that he was no longer invited to speak at the Aug. 15 event, called “Lobsterfest,” for the comments he has made against Trump since Tuesday.

1. Calling a Spade a Motherfucking Shovel....

Gets one disinvited? How thin skinned the GOP is becoming.

The truth hurts. Trump is turning the GOP into a Party of Hate.

3. I would consider being disinvited from any GOP event a badge of honor,

especially if the reason for the disinvitation was that I suggested that Trump's comments were racist.

4. Hmm...is Tony also caught up in the Epstein mess?

 

Anyone who has or has had a close relationship with Trump-Epstein is suspect.
