Scaramanga Scaramouche Scaramucci: Two-Faced Turnabout.

Oh what a different song he sings! Scaramucci was no fan of the Tiny Tyrant, but of course, he’s contorted himself into a complete 380. While he has been busy scrubbing his past tweets, he can’t control all the times he ranted about what a rotten egg Trump is, and how he should stick with real estate. Whatever Scaramucci’s talents might be, he’s not so great at the spokesperson business, having attempted a tight mouth denial about Russia, citing an anonymous source, only to spill that his source was Trump in the overwhelming heat of a second question.

This is Scaramucci, ranting about Trump in 2015:

In 2015, Scaramucci appeared on the Fox Business Network to talk about politics. They played a clip of Donald Trump attacking “hedge fund guys.”

Scaramucci responded with an extended rant against Trump, calling his new boss “another hack politician” and “anti-American.” He said Trump’s rhetoric is “very, very divisive.”

He wasn’t done.

“It’s very very divisive. I’ll tell you who he’s going to be president of,” he said, looking into the camera, “you can tell Donald I said this, the Queens County Bullies Association. You gotta cut it out now and stop all this crazy rhetoric spinning everybody’s heads around.”

Another host interjected that it was rich that Scaramucci finally drew the line with Trump’s rhetoric on “hedge fund guys,” after everything Trump had said about women.

Scaramucci agreed with her.

“I don’t like the way he talks about women, I don’t like the way he talks about our friend Megyn Kelly, and you know what, the politicians don’t want to go at Trump because he’s got a big mouth and because [they’re] afraid he’s going to light them up on Fox News and all these other places,” he said. “But I’m not a politician. Bring it. You’re an inherited money dude from Queens County. Bring it, Donald.”

    So, 45 brought it. A high-paying government job and a place at the table of the ruling elite, that is. Scaramucci really fought it off bravely.

    (BTW, every time I hear Scaramucci’s name, I think of the villain in “The Man With The Golden Gun”.)

    Oh, so do I. I had to correct Scaramanga several times.

    Separate his name into scary, because he is, and moochie, ‘cuz that’s what hedge fund guys do.

    I suspect that Trump doesn’t mind all the stuff he said before: Trump wants people like Conway who give absolutely not one picofuck about what they say. He’s pre-qualified as a nihilist.

    I suspect that Trump doesn’t mind all the stuff he said before:

    That’s one thing Trump does care about -- a bunch of people were fired, or not considered for hiring if they had so much as one tweet or fb post which was critical of him. I wonder if Scaramucci’s deleting past tweets were part of the deal in his hiring.

    It says it all when the administration appoints people with actual mob nicknames to positions.
