Anthony Scaramucci has broken his silence and was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week show to discuss what he’s been up to since being fired, and his opinion on the matter.
One of the first topics discussed was Trump’s tweets in regards to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA. Scarmucci said that he “wouldn’t have recommended that statement. I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacist and the nature of that. I applaud General McMaster for calling it out for what it is. It’s actually terrorism. Whether it’s domestic or international, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out.”
When discussing his extremely short tenure, Scaramucci says that the “odds were stacked against me in the job.” He contends that there “were probably one or two people that wanted me in that job – the President being one of them. And there were probably two hundred people that didn’t want me in that job.”
Scaramucci remains loyal to the President saying his agenda “supersedes everything else.” When being pressed on his loyalty, he says that “I talked to the President this week, we had a very candid conversation. There’s mutual disappointment on both sides.”
In the fourteen-minute interview, he says multiple times that he has to be held accountable for his actions, but he wishes that “they would give me a bar of soap and told me to go wash my mouth out in the bathroom and move on.”
The interview continues to discuss some other topics including firing Robert Mueller, the Russia investigation, Trump’s relationship with Putin and the President’s Twitter account.
Tonight, Scaramucci heads over to the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
