On Wednesday night Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker and their on-air contributor for CNN received an interesting phone call. It certainly wasn’t from anyone he wanted to talk to, it was from White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, and he wasn’t happy.
Tony the Mooch Goes Off on Lizza
Scaramucci was not happy about a tweet Lizza had tweeted just a few hours before.
Senior White House official tells me that Melania was also at the dinner tonight with Trump, Hannity, Shine, and Scaramucci.

Scaramucci had called Lizza up asking about the tweet and how he got the information and the rest is history. He asked Lizza “Who leaked that to you?” and Lizza replied with he couldn’t share that information. What are you hiding Moochy if you’re freaking out over a simple dinner? Scaramucci then replied with he was going to fire every White House communications staff member, “What I’m going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we’ll start over.” That sounds more like a hit to me than it does a simple firing of staff. Lizza then laughed at him for his pathetic attempt to get Lizza to reveal his source. “I ask these guys not to leak anything and they can’t help themselves,” he said. “You’re an American citizen, this is major catastrophe for the American country. So I’m asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it.” Moochy…you’re really freaking out over someone knowing you had dinner with other politicians? Seriously?
It Gets Worse
Sadly enough Scaramucci believes that this leak is proof that his rivals in the West Wing are plotting against him, including Reince Priebus. Scaramucci then asked Lizza once again, “Is it an assistant to the President?” It’s gonna take much more than that to crack a reporter Moochy. “O.K., I’m going to fire every one of them, and then you haven’t protected anybody, so the entire place will be fired over the next two weeks.” And then it got awful:
“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been worried about the dinner because he hadn’t been invited. “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said. He channelled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘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.’ ”
Um…excuse you…what did you just say? But it didn’t stop there, “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.” Well Moochy you’re sadly mistaken if you think 45 has any sort of strength.
Lizza recorded the entire conversation and the Twitterverse grapevine lit up like carnival lights during a clear summer night. The Twitterverse is now calling for Lizza to release the tape of Scaramucci’s appalling rant.
