Anthony Scaramucci Called Me to Unload About White House Leakers, Reince Priebus, and Steve Bannon

Source: The New Yorker

"Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” [White House Communications Director] Scaramucci said. He channelled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’"

. . .

"I'm not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.” (Bannon declined to comment.)

. . .

"What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people,” he told me.

He fits right in with dRumpf's worldview, though. Another fake tough guy.

... and we all know who that is. The Mooch is putting on a show for his new boss, so Cheeto will see him being tough with the media. This is all for show, and it was totally planned to be that way.

If Cheeto was impressed, that's the only thing that matters. The rest of us can pound salt.

that I have to suspect some of them were this way to begin with. God, what a way to live, eh? Conspiracy theories, paranoia, always looking over your shoulder...is it really worth the money? (Rhetorical question.)

It looks more to me like living in the gutter.

39. It's more an ego thing

as Rahm was one to throw around f-bombs and threats too - at least back in his early days during the Obama admin. This was mainly why Obama picked him - basically to play the bully to head off all those GOPers in Congress with exploded heads after Obama's election.
