Scaramucci asks left to create 'off ramp' for Trump officials, compares it to 'trying to deprogram people from a cult'

Scaramucci asks left to create 'off ramp' for Trump officials, compares it to 'trying to deprogram people from a cult' Anthony Scaramucci, who briefly served as President Trump's White House communications director, said the left needs to give Republicans supporting Trump the space they need to break from the president. "We recognize the president is a clear and present danger for the American society the American culture, there are many people inside the White House and inside the cabinet - I would ask the left, let's create an off ramp for those people because when you're trying to deprogram people from a cult you have to allow them to change their mind, allow them the space to change their mind," Scaramucci said Sunday in a Fox News inter

Anthony Scaramucci may have spent his 11-day tenure as White House communications director proclaiming his love for President Donald Trump, but the pair's Twitter feud has since demolished their former friendship to dust. Now, Scaramucci can be found hanging out at one of former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign stops, instead.

The 2020 Democratic candidate gave a speech at a charity fundraiser hosted by the Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons in Southampton on Saturday night, and Scaramucci was spotted in the crowd.

The Mooch told a reporter covering the event that he was still a registered Republican, but was actively looking for a primary challenger to Trump, who Scaramucci said has "lost his mind." That being said, he is not advocating for Biden in the meantime, either.

Jill Biden: 'You may like another candidate better' but husband is most 'electable' "I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race," the former second lady said.

"I haven't switched my support to Vice President Biden, but I will be working to find a nominee to challenge Donald Trump because he's lost his mind and we gotta get somebody in there before we lose the election in 2020," Scaramucci said in a video taken at the Blue Dream Gala charity event.

The soundbite shouldn't come as a surprise, given that Scaramucci has occupied plenty of airwaves and space online with his disdain for Trump. In just the past few days, he has pleaded on MSNBC for Republican leadership to convince Trump to step down and let Vice President Mike Pence take over.

Scaramucci also called Trump worse than a racist, suggested he is in the early stages of "full-blown fascism," and published an op-ed in The Washington Post explaining that he wanted to be part of the "solution" of preventing Trump from holding office for another four years.

Trump has also escalated his feud with Scaramucci publicly, including tweeting out a compilation of times the Mooch had previously pledged his loyalty to the president, set in part to kazoo music. The two began fighting after Scaramucci criticized Trump's response to the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
