Anthony Scaramucci to Appear at Pasadena Politicon

Yack yack, blah blah.
Mod: I'm not sure if you are familiar with Pasadena Politicon, but it is an occasional local event where name brand political gasbags go to do their well-worn shtick in exchange for a paycheck. If you are a cable television political news addict you likely know who at least some of these windy people are. 

That said, there is apparently more excitement than usual in Politicon circles because for their event later this week they have landed none other than Donald Trump's irksome replacement for the recently resigned White House Communications Director Sean Spicer, a snappish little fruitcake and hedge fund Wall Street billionaire named Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci

Here is some of their rather breathless press release:


Well yes, I am interested in covering this news in advance of the event. But no, I wouldn't want to go to something like this, even at gunpoint. I cannot begin to tell you how sick and tired I am of some of the people who will be there. Being in the same room with them could result in something mere bath soap will never be able to cure. That being the stench of failure and betrayal.

Apparently this Scaramucci fellow is a bit of a dirtbag. Or at least he is in the eyes of some of the Republicans he has slithered up against in the past. Here is an article that is currently up on The Daily Beast site that details the strong aversion several GOP types feel for him.



GOP Campaigns Recall a Self-Dealing Leaker in Scaramucci (The Daily Beast link): President Donald Trump prizes two qualities above all else: loyalty and discretion—don’t cross the boss, and don’t leak. Whether he’ll find either in his new communications director is an open question.

On Sunday, New York investor and media personality Anthony Scaramucci declared that he will root out White House leakers in his new post. “We’re going to stop the leaks. And if we don’t stop the leaks, I’m going to stop you. It’s just really that simple,” he said on an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.

But aides to 2016 presidential candidates whom Scaramucci endorsed before coming around to Trump say he was suspected of leaking internal information, and left out of some internal discussions for fear that he would pass along those sorts of details to reporters—or that he already had.

Scaramucci did not respond to questions about this story.

He threw his weight behind the Trump campaign only after his first two preferred candidates, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Florida governor Jeb Bush, dropped out. Between his stints raising money for those campaigns, he was in talks with a third, that of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Former senior aides on all three of those campaigns say Scaramucci gave the impression of a hanger-on trying to methodically get in the good graces of whichever candidate he saw as most likely to prevail. Only when Trump had the nomination all but secured did Scaramucci sign on with his campaign.

“He was trying to pick the winner,” according to a former senior Rubio aide, who said Scaramucci approached that campaign after Walker withdrew from the race in September 2015. Despite intense competition to pick up the support of key fundraisers, the former Rubio aide said, Scaramucci was seen as too self-serving and untrustworthy, and the Rubio campaign declined his support.

Here's another Mooch trashing:

Anthony Scaramucci Loved Hillary, Gave to Obama, and Deleted Anti-Trump Tweets (The Daily Beast link): Anthony Scaramucci deleted tweets in which he previously criticized Donald Trump hours after accepting his new job as White House communications director on Friday.

Scaramucci also previously expressed support for his boss's old rivals, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama—even donating money to their campaigns.

In December 2011, Scaramucci referred to the "Trump spectacle" in a tweet about Mitt Romney. Two months later, the new White House pick tweeted a National Journal article about Trump endorsing Newt Gingrich in the 2012 race: “Odd guy. So smart with no judgment.”

The deleted tweets were spotted by freelance journalist Josh Billinson, who Scaramucci briefly blocked.

“I'm just shocked he hadn't deleted them earlier,” Billinson told The Daily Beast. “That he could've been in the running for communications director and not even thought to check what he had publicly said about Trump in the past is wild to me.”

In December 2015, Scaramucci attacked Trump's call for a border wall between Mexico and the U.S.

"Walls don't work. Never have never will. The Berlin Wall 1961-1989 don't fall for it," he tweeted, above a picture of the wall.

Mod: My advice? Stay as far away as you possibly can.

  4. He's a good edition to the team. Very sharp guy and exactly what's needed right now so Trump can continue with the agenda that people voted him in office to do. You may not like it but neither does Maxine Waters or Elizabeth Warren so you're in good company.

  5. Scarymoocher is no different than Kelly Ann. Both trash-talkers chasing air time and ducats. Proof that 45 is hiring from the bottom of the swamp. Did you really call him a fruitcake? That sounds like something Don Imus would say. You're better than that.

  9. Giuliani would make a good AG.
    Sessions is alright, but straddles the fence.
    Fruitcake = Maxine Waters and her bad weaves.
    Elizabeth Warren is the best the Dems have, she is CEO of the Fruitcake bakery.

      You really think it advances your argument to bring up the topic of bad hair in Washington?

    4. People like 10:38 just can't stand people who are better educated than them. 10:38 and his ilk prefer to be around people who use their "feelings" or "beliefs" as evidence.

      Those with biggly amounts of book learnin' are scary because they know things.

    5. 12:23 - a person's appearance tells you a lot. A haircut like that would indicate you've met a vain, narcissistic old man that doesn't like folks very much.

  11. Scramucci, he's a in your face, tell it like it is New Yorker. He'll be fine in DC and inside the belt ways of Washington.
    "Monkey"? Really poster 11:31am, would you have said the same for President #44? and his communications director?
    President Trump won the election. Get over the jr. High mentality of the popular vote, ask instead why did the founding fathers set up that check and balance?
    Each party has experienced popularity votes and the outcome was not what was expected.
    Support America, not hysteria.

    6. So because trump "won" the election,which is doubtful, the traitor,Russian collaborator has some right to keep the presidency? Not in this country we have laws and he cannot pardon himself. But Pence would be worse.......

    7. Funny how the spin is that although Russia clearly meddled with the election, including hacking voter information, Russia stopped short of changing the voting results even in places where voting machines and systems are demonstrably hackable. Now why would they stop short like that? Conscience bothering them? And all those months and months of polls were wrong? Yeah, sure....

    8. Actually the polls were right. Trump lost by 3 million votes.

  12. These people are losers too! If their boss can not count then we are all in for a world of hurts, Obama care and it's 17 years in existence? Hope the Republicans can stop this disease they created (trump care) and fast.

  13. That lying monkey in the White House, just can not handle himself in public or private either! No need to try and make the issue any worse - Donald J. Trump is the worst and needs to be removed ASAP. His inhumane like traits are disgusting and filthy at best. As it has been expressed before the revolution 'down with the crazy king'..

  14. Trump Brags To Boy Scouts About Spending Time Partying On Yachts, Hints At Sex Yacht Party

    During his speech to the Boy Scouts of America on Monday, President Trump bragged about spending time on yachts and recounted a story about meeting real estate developer William Levitt at a cocktail party with “the hottest people in New York.”

    Speaking to the massive crowd in West Virginia, Trump described a yacht party he attended where he saw Levitt after the developer had suffered several failed business endeavors.

    At one point, Trump told the Boy Scouts he couldn’t recount part of his story because it was not suitable for the young children.

    “I won’t go into any more than that cause you’re Boy Scouts,” Trump said, hinting at an orgy as Death & Taxes noted. “So I’m not going to tell you what he did.”
