We sincerely apologize for the extreme obscenities in the quotes you are about to read, but the subject of this article is a potty-mouthed child masquerading as an adult.
On Wednesday evening, the new White House Director of Communications, Anthony Scaramucci, decided to pick up the phone and out of nowhere call Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker. The rest, as they say, is history.
And it’s a history not meant for children or the faint of heart.
Scaramucci, who originally called Lizza to complain about a tweet the writer had posted stating that Scaramucci was having dinner with the president, Sean Hannity, and former Fox News executive Bill Shine, but the conversation soon turned to other, more personal matters which “the Mooch” probably wishes he had never broached.
Over the next few minutes, Scaramucci held forth on various members of the White House inner circle, and what he said is enough to get him in big trouble the next time he goes to confession. Here’s the Communications Director:
On Reince Priebus
“Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly. Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac. Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.”
On Steve Bannon
“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock. I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.”
On What Should Be Done to Leakers
“What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people.”
“Let me tell you something about myself. I am a straight shooter.”
Not long after the call became public, Scaramucci posted this:

This is the man in charge of communications for the White House. He’s the person who decides what message should be sent out to the public on a daily basis. Yet he carries on like a schoolyard bully and has the self-control of a preschooler. No wonder Donald Trump loves him so damn much.
