Scaramucci criticizes Trump's reaction to Charlottesville violence

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci had harsh words for President Donald Trump's reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend.

Scaramucci spoke to ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC News' "This Week" today in his first television interview since his whirlwind 11-day stint in the White House.

"I wouldn't have recommended that statement," Scaramucci said of Trump's words on Saturday from Bedminster, New Jersey. "I think he would have needed to have been much harsher."

"With the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out," Scaramucci said, referring to Trump's seeming unwillingness to condemn the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, where clashes between white nationalists and counter-protest groups forced the city to declare a state of emergency Saturday.

Scaramucci went on to criticize the influence of the website Breitbart and Steven Bannon, who was the executive chairman of Breitbart before joining the Trump campaign and later the administration, saying that there's "this sort of 'Bannon-bart' influence" in the White House that he thinks "is a snag on the president."

1. Seems like

Now that he's out of the White House, he's being much more honest and open about things instead of trying to cast a glow over them.

3. And so, "calling Trumpy out" might mean saying that...

Trumpy is a fascist, racist, Nazi sympathizer and turncoat for Putin who deserves a conviction for treason.

4. "moral authority of the Presidency"?

Sorry, but that doesn't exist anymore with the leaky colostomy bag sitting in the White (and I do mean WHITE) House.
