Scaramucci Comes Out Against Trump Tweets

There was no shortage of outrage directed at Donald Trump’s weekend tweets concerning 4 female minority Congresswomen. While it took nearly an entire day, some Republican lawmakers even came around to condemning the President’s words.

There was near silence, though, from the vast majority of conservatives, especially those who are currently serving or had previously served in Trump’s cabinet. Today, former White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, came out against the tweets.

While “The Mooch” served in the White House for less than a week, he had previously been an important surrogate for Trump. The financier still regularly appears on cable news to discuss the President and his policies.

He did, however take exception to his former boss’ attack on Reps. Omar, Tlaib, Pressley and Ocasio-Cortez. Scaramucci tweeted, “Would Donald Trump ever tell a white immigrant – whether 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th+ generation – to “go back to your country”? No. That’s why the comments were racist and unacceptable. America is a nation of immigrants founded on the ideals of free thought and free speech.”

A Twitter user replied to Scaramucci parroting the President’s argument that these congresswomen hate America. The former White House Comms Director replied, “If they hate America, why are they serving and how did they get elected? I’m pretty sure they love America as much as you or me, but have different ideas on how to make it better. That’s their right, and the country is better off for having diverse people and opinions.”

The White House has yet to comment on Scaramucci’s tweet.
