Anthony Scaramucci: GOP may need to replace Trump in 2020

Anthony Scaramucci, who famously served as President Trump's communications director for 11 days, says Republicans may need to pick a different candidate in 2020.

In a phone interview on Sunday afternoon, Scaramucci compared Trump to a melting nuclear reactor and said he may support a Republican challenger to Trump.

"We are now in the early episodes of 'Chernobyl' on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process," Scaramucci said. "A couple more weeks like this and 'country over party' is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020."

Most advisers try to stay on the good side of Trump because they know the famously fickle leader might bring them back into his inner circle at some point. That changed when Scaramucci called out Trump for his incendiary white nationalist rhetoric. After the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Scaramucci slammed Trump’s visits to the wounded cities as “catastrophic.”

1. GOP may need to replace Constitution in 2020.

Otherwise, they'd ALL need replaced.

4. If Rs actually do this, it will be "party over country," not the other way around.

They have done nothing for the good of the country since the most unqualified person ever squatted in the White House. He’s given them much of what they wanted (tax cuts, partisan judges, deregulation, preserving white supremacy, to start), and they have opposed him NOT AT ALL.

Now that he’s getting more toxic by the day — and ONLY now — they are considering making a change to preserve their party’s stature as a credible option for voters.

It’s been over 50 years, and probably longer, since Republicans put country first.
