Anthony Scaramucci has a law degree and a pretty hefty financial pedigree.
Somehow, though, he got himself appointed White House communications director over the vehement objections of former press secretary Sean Spicer.
As I scanned Scaramucci’s record, I got a glimpse into what might have prompted Spicer to quit after Donald Trump installed Scaramucci as communications director.
“Mooch,” as he is known, seems to have had trouble keeping his own stories straight.
He is known to support gay marriage and strong gun-control laws, two issues that are anathema to Donald Trump’s political “base.” He once raised money for Democratic presidential candidate Barack H. Obama. Mooch backed Scott Walker and then Jeb Bush in the 2016 Republican primary and then threw in with Trump’s transition after the president was elected.
He’s also said some highly critical things about Trump.
I must ask: This is the individual who is going to put the White House “on message” and seek to avoid the missteps, mistakes and misstatements that have poured out of Trump administration?
Chaos, meet confusion.
