Wisdom has dictated that people “have to go away to come back,” but, ya know, Anthony Scaramucci recently told a New Yorker writer that he was not one to “suck my own cock,” so perhaps we should assume The Mooch is not one for norms.
The former incoming White House communications director has teed up a few “please-accept-me-in-the-public-sphere” interviews in an effort to bounce back after being unceremoniously fired before he even technically started his job.
Stephen Colbert and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos will sit down with Scaramucci over the next few days (Colbert on Monday, Stephanopoulos on Sunday), where everyone will no doubt rehash Scaramucci’s 10-day non-stint at the White House, wherein a jobless man lost his job.
But before he appears on any TV screen, The Mooch has already been gifting the masses with his, um, shall we say “colorful,” language and assertions on Twitter.
On Wednesday night, Scaramucci called New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza the “Linda Tripp of 2017,” a reference to the woman who recorded conversations with Monica Lewinsky about Lewinsky’s intimate involvement with President Bill Clinton.
And Monica Lewinsky definitely noticed.
The Mooch also accused reporter Lizza of recording his now infamous New Yorker interview without his permission. (You know, the interview where Scaramucci called then-White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus “a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac” and roasted White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon by saying “Im not Steve Bannon, Im not trying to suck my own cock.”)
The claim comes in opposition to Lizza’s assertion that Scaramucci knew the call was on the record. Also, if Lizza recorded him without telling Scaramucci, that’s legal in New York, and also legal in Washington, D.C.
Who knows what Scaramucci is going to say when he returns, but if his Twitter account is any indication, we’re in for quite a show.
