Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci may be watching too much television, as he seems to be having a difficult time separating real life from make believe.
According to Scaramucci, who lasted all of 11 days in his role, the Republican Party is going to have to replace President Trump in the 2020 election if he doesn’t mend his ways.
“We are now in the early episodes of ‘Chernobyl’ on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process,” Scaramucci told Axios.
In the demoted scenario, which effectively plays into the liberal media narrative, Trump is the melting nuclear reactor.
Scaramucci opined, “A couple more weeks like this and ‘country over party’ is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020.”
Never mind that finding a formidable candidate to primary Trump is one tall task, the ensuing bloodbath would likely ensure the Democrat Party retakes the White House in 2020 — especially considering the fact that the Republican National Committee has already backed the president’s reelection campaign, voting in January to offer its “undivided support” for Trump.
(For the record, former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld has already announced his intentions on challenging Trump in the GOP primary, although he hasn’t exactly set the news cycle on fire since throwing his hat in the ring.)
In what amounts to conjecture, or speaking something in the hopes that it may come true, the former Trump official said that if the president “doesn’t reform his behavior, it will not just be me, but many others will be considering helping to find a replacement in 2020.”
“Right now, it’s an unspeakable thing,” Scaramucci said. “But if he keeps it up, it will no longer be unspeakable. The minute they start speaking of it, it will circulate and be socialized. We can’t afford a full nuclear contamination site post [in] 2020.”
This from the man who once said Trump “has some of the best political instincts in the world, and perhaps in history.”
Scaramucci, who now retweets deranged Trump haters like Joe Scarborough, called the president’s trip last week to an El Paso, Texas, hospital to visit shooting survivors there a “catastrophe.”
The remark was made on MSNBC, which competes with CNN in paying Republicans to appear on the network to criticize Trump.
This prompted a typical bare knuckle response from the president, reminding his antagonist of the reason for his relevancy.
“Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all time expert on ‘President Trump,'” tweeted President Trump in response to Scaramucci.
He added, “Like many other so-called television experts, he knows very little about me other than the fact that this Administration has probably done more than any other Administration in its first 2 1/2 years of existence. Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it’s not for being the Mooch!”

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham offered Axios a terse response to Scaramucci’s comments about the need to replace her boss in 2020:
“It sounds like his feelings are hurt.”
