The Mooch Emerges, Plans to Hold Facebook Live Event to Defend His Honor

In a CNN exclusive, Chris Cuomo said Anthony Scaramucci will hold a Facebook live event on Friday, in order to defend his honor. According to Cuomo, The Mooch feels the media has unfairly maligned him and he wants to set the record straight.

In regards to his brief term at the White House, he says it was a success — comparing himself to a ‘special purpose vehicle’ (SPV) whose sole purpose was to clear the decks and vanquish the west wing of leakers and “disrupt the culture of leaking and counterproductive infighting”. Aside from Steve Bannon still sucking his own cock inside the White House, Scaramucci considers his time with Trump a success.

Huffington Post had some color on the events that led up to Scaramucci’s departure.

As soon as Scaramucci returned from Wednesday night’s dinner, he called Lizza and gave his now-infamous interview, published Thursday, in which he suggested that former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was a “paranoid schizophrenic” and that White House chief strategist Steve Bannon practiced auto-fellatio.

Scaramucci said he felt burned by the interview. “The Lizzas and Scaramuccis have been friends for over 50 years. My dad knew his dad from construction, and we were building a personal relationship. Most of what I said was humorous and joking. Legally, it may have been on the record, but the spirit of it was off. And he knew that.”

Still, Scaramucci told me, he has plans to take Lizza out for a beer.

When I asked Lizza for his response, he wrote back: “I’ve only known Anthony in his capacity as a Trump surrogate and then White House communications director. We are not and have never been ‘old family friends,’ though I think our fathers knew each other, so maybe that’s what he’s talking about. (The Long Island Italian world in that generation is relatively small.) But again, that would not be a reason to suppress an explosive on-the-record interview.”

But on Monday morning, Scaramucci knew he was cooked. Retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, the new chief of staff, who insisted that all White House staff report to him, asked for his resignation. “It was a very polite conversation,” Scaramucci says.

Scaramucci then went to see Trump, who was unavailable. He ended up speaking with the president, his daughter Ivanka Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, separately later in the day by telephone. All were gracious, he said. “The president told me he knows I have his back, but he has to try to tighten the ship.”

So what are you going to do next, I asked him.

“I am now going to go dark,” he said.

And then?

“Then I will reemerge.” He paused. “As me.”

SAD!

    Sucks for the Mooch. I hope he gets his $85 mil. He’s an interesting guy and I don’t think we’ve heard for the last of him. Good that he didn’t take it personally and didn’t give the MSM more of the crap that they want to report on.

    Fly, the Venezuela story this week is a big story – Sec. Mnuchin didn’t rule out potential oil sanctions. I tried to find an article of you guys covering but couldn’t find. Apologies if I missed. To me it was biggest story of the week. 30% chance that anything will come of it, but if it does, very bullish for /CL and for our frackers here in the USA. Certain refiners a short, other refiners a long. Something to keep an eye on. Also Venezuela very close to default so any U.S. sanctions that bring them closer to default will bring potential problems for EM in general and for all of South America/Central America for a while. There are some nice trades there the nanosecond that these sanctions would become more of a reality than a “not rule out”, or as Reuters says “still consider”:

    There is something historic about the Mooch – I can’t put my finger on it – but he is perhaps the sort of talisman who could coalesce all the disparate anti-left groups under one umbrella. The right has not yet got a spokesperson to establish the narrative. I think that we are going the see and hear a lot more from him in the future.

    I say good luck to him.
