Anthony Scaramucci has been named as President Trump’s White House communications director and his first public appearance in the role was filled with nothing but love for the 45th POTUS.
Scaramucci, a frequent Fox News guest, showed off his love for Trump while promising to be “very loyal” to the President. His appearance occurred just as Sean Spicer announced he was resigning from his role at the end of this coming August.
“I love the mission that the president has since the early days of the campaign,” Scaramucci said.
“I grew up in the middle class, and so there’s a struggle out there. The president saw that before I did. I wish I could tell you I saw it before him, but he taught it to me.”
This isn’t really a surprise as Scaramucci has been running to the defense of the First Family for months, once comparing Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law to Alexander Hamilton.
It was likely his unwavering praise for the President and the First Family that landed him the job.
In one of perhaps the most mind-boggling moments, Scaramucci praised the overweight President’s athletic prowess.
“He’s the most competitive person I’ve ever met, okay? I’ve seen this guy throw a dead spiral through a tire. I’ve seen him at Madison Square Garden with a top coat on, he’s standing in the key and he’s hitting foul shots and swishing them. He sinks three foot putts.”
The former hedge fund manager also predicted a big win for Trump’s health care goals in the near future because “the president has really good karma.”
“I predict the president will get a win in healthcare. That’s my honest prediction, just because I’ve seen him in operation of the last twenty plus years. The president has really good karma, okay? And the world turns back to him,” Scaramucci said.
This is the same man who called Trump a “hack politician” in 2015, although he apologized for that comment during his first appearance in front of the White House Press Corps.
“One of the biggest mistakes that I made is I was an unexperienced person in the world of politics, I was supporting another candidate, I should have never said that about him,” Scaramucci said.
“So, Mr. President, if you’re listening, I personally apologize for the 50th time for saying that.”
After his strange appearance, Scaramucci started blowing kisses to the press corps as he exited the room.
