Fired White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci once again lashed out at President Donald Trump after being thumped by the president for accusing him of racism, saying that his former boss bullies those around him as a “deterrence” from speaking out about his so-called “ mental

WASHINGTON — John F. Kelly, President Trump ’s new chief of staff, firmly asserted his authority on his first day in the White House on Monday, telling aides he will impose military discipline on a free-for-all West Wing, and he underscored his intent by firing Anthony Scaramucci

Stephanie Grisham, in her first television interview since becoming White House press secretary, was forced to defend President Trump on Wednesday against scathing comments made by Anthony Scaramucci, who appeared moments before her segment.

Grisham dismissed Scaramucci, who held her job in the Trump administration for 11 days in 2017, as just someone with hurt feelings after he was fired.

Scaramucci has had a dramatic about-face when it comes to Trump. In less than half the time he served in the White House, Scaramucci went from Trump ally to nemesis. On HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher” on Friday, he was still calling Trump a friend. By Monday, Scaramucci suggested Republicans look for another nominee to replace Trump at the top of the ticket.

Trump blasts Scaramucci as 'incapable' President Trump on Saturday slammed former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci as having been "incapable" of the job."Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all time expert on 'President Trump.'" Trump tweeted Saturday night. Trump's tweets came after Scaramucci said Trump's visit to survivors of a Texas mass shooting was a "catastrophe." He added that Scaramucci "knows very little about me...

Anthony Scaramucci 's tenure at the White House was so short that it has inspired a meme about things that lasted longer. Scaramucci unintentionally may have established some order in the Trump White House . Maybe. His ouster was reportedly facilitated by retired Marine Gen.

Scaramucci unleashed on his former boss over an eight-minute interview on Sinclair Broadcast’s “America This Week” with Eric Bolling.

“He’s mentally declining,” Scaramucci said. “He’s losing his step here in terms of how he’s thinking about human beings, and he’s creating a corrosive, socially-dividing cancer in the country that’s not worth the economics.”

Grisham later said questioning Trump’s mental state was “ridiculous.”

Bolling repeatedly asked Scaramucci to explain why he stood by Trump for so long and was turning on him now. Scaramucci said the president’s comments suggesting four congresswomen of color “go back” to the places they’re from; the “send her back” chant at his rally about Somali-born Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.); and his tweets denigrating the city of Baltimore convinced him that Trump’s objective was to divide the country.

Scaramucci fires back at Trump: He will 'turn on everyone' and then 'entire country'

"Recently he has said things that divide the country in a way that is unacceptable. So I didn't pass the 100% litmus test. Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country.

The new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci gave an interview recently to The New Yorker, where he went into vulgar, unhinged tirades.

Trump ’s new communications chief says he will take ‘dramatic action’ to stop leaks, and brushes off his own criticism of Trump during Republican primaries.

Scaramucci said the president is not a “racist” because he’s too much of a “narcissist” to see people as anything by “an object in the room.”

Democrats, including many running for president, have called Trump a racist and a white supremacist following a mass shooting in El Paso where the gunman mirrored some of Trump’s language about immigrants.

“The president as he has said, he’s not racist in any way,” Grisham said. “It’s just what people like to throw out there when they have nothing else to say.”

Scaramucci had been criticizing Trump’s policies and comments — but not him personally — for days, but it wasn’t until Trump tweeted negatively about him on Monday that Scaramucci said he decided any kinship between the two was over.

Asked about Trump’s tweet about Scaramucci fueling this feud, Grisham said: “The president is going to counterpunch when someone goes at him, that’s how he is.” She added, “The things Anthony are saying are incorrect.” She also said the public explanation of Scaramucci’s firing, which came after he gave a profanity-filled interview to a reporter, isn’t the whole story, but she declined to say more.

Scaramucci also had choice words for Grisham’s other predecessor, Sean Spicer, calling him “Liar Spice from the Spice Girls.”

“There’s never been a bigger liar than him. Trump’s up there,” he said.

Scaramucci also made a bold prediction that Trump would not run in 2020, but provided no evidence or explanation to back that up that claim.
