Anthony Scaramucci goes full-bore after ‘animal’ NY Post journo; it’s personal, and it’s UGLY

Anthony Scaramucci may no longer work in the Trump administration, but that won’t stop him from fiercely defending the president’s family.

In a series of Thursday evening tweets, former White House communications director lashed out at Page Six reporter Emily Smith, who penned an article claiming Donald Trump, Jr. and his wife, Vanessa, were heading for divorce.

Scaramucci began by saying Smith likes “hurting people,” quoting the Page Six writer’s tweet gloating over the Trump, Jr. piece and another article that claimed Scaramucci was spotted having an “intimate conversation” with Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle.

The former communications director briefly pursued a romantic relationship with Guilfoyle last year while estranged from his wife.

Scaramucci continued his condemnation of Smith.

In one tweet, he called the Page Six reporter a “lowlife animal,” tagging both Smith and Francesca Bacardi, who wrote the article about him and Guilfoyle.

The billionaire financier went on to say Smith is the “ugliest person there is on the inside,” and a “person with no moral or journalistic standards.”

The tweeting gained the attention of Geraldo Rivera, who urged Scaramucci to “be cool.”

The Trump ally brushed off Rivera’s remark, saying “I’m not a tough guy,” Geraldo.

Rivera again chimed in, arguing Smith was “doing her job.”

Scaramuci closed his rant by retweeting Chelsea Clinton, who called on the press to “respect the privacy of President Trump’s grandchildren.”

After the Page Six report, Reuters reported that Vanessa Trump had filed for divorce.

“After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways,” she said. The couple has five children together.
