Scaramucci: Priebus is a ‘paranoid schizophrenic’ will be asked to resign and Scaramucci doesn’t suck his own c*ck like Steve Bannon
(According to this) White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci unloaded on chief of staff Reince Priebus, accusing him of leaking details of a private dinner with President Trump and claiming he will be asked to resign.
Scaramucci appeared to be taking aim at Priebus as being the leaker behind Scaramucci’s financial documents. The tweet has since been deleted.
Now Scaramucci is accusing Preibus of leaking details of a private dinner with President Trump.
“Reince is a f—— paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci told New Yorker writer Ryan Lizza in a Wednesday phone call.
“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said of the White House communications staff. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus — if you want to leak something — he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.”
Scaramucci was angry that Lizza found out he planned to dine with Trump, Fox News host Sean Hannity and former Fox News executive Bill Shine at the White House. He believed that Priebus, whom he has feuded with for months, was the one who told Lizza about it.
Mimicking Priebus, Scaramucci tells Lizza: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the f—— thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’ ”
Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “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.”
In a tweet after the story published, Scaramucci declined to apologize to his colleagues. He did suggest he would quit using profanity publicly in his new role.
“I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump’s agenda. #MAGA” he wrote.
