White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci responded to a Thursday New Yorker piece by saying he should have never trusted a reporter.
Scaramucci’s tweet implied that he would not make that mistake again after a New Yorker piece on Scaramucci featured numerous quotes from him about White House leaks after he unloaded on a reporter during a phone call.
“I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won’t happen again,” Scaramucci tweeted.
I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won't happen again.

New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza wrote a piece about a late night phone call he had with the communications director after Scaramucci called to rant about a tweet Lizza wrote. The tweet in question referred to a private dinner that President Donald Trump had with First Lady Melania Trump, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Bill Shine and Scaramucci.
Furious that the information about the dinner had leaked, Scaramucci called Lizza and demanded to know who had leaked the information to him. During the phone call with Lizza, he threatened to fire Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.
“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,” Scaramucci reportedly told Lizza.
