As if supporting Jeb Bush during the Republican primary elections wasn’t embarrassing enough, newly-minted White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is also regretting some shots he took at the then-front-runner, and his eventual employer, during a 2015 Fox Business Network appearance.
“He’s a hack politician,” said the Jeb! supporting Scaramucci, then a Wall Street financier, on the 2015 Mornings With Maria Fox Business show. “He’s probably going to make Elizabeth Warren his Vice-Presidential nominee with comments like that. It’s anti-American. It’s very divisive. I’ll tell you who he’s gonna be president of – you can tell Donald I said this – the Queens County bullies association.”
Scaramucci was responding to a comment Trump had made about the “nothing” hedge fund investors supposedly pay.
So, inquiring minds want to know if President Trump has forgotten all about that statement:
“He brings it up every 15 seconds,” said Scaramucci on Friday during his first press conference in his new role. “One of the biggest mistakes that I made because I was an unexperienced person in the world of politics. I was supporting another candidate. I should have never said that about him.”
“I personally apologize for the 50th time for saying that. … I hope that someday, Mr. President, you’ll forget it,” the press secretary joked.
After the segment, Fox News host Neil Cavuto quipped, “that’s the way to handle something like that!”
