Columnist says Scaramucci freakout shows Trump White House is floundering

Donald Trump's Presidency

White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci described his tumultuous relationship with Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as similar to that of biblical characters Cain and Abel during a Thursday interview. I was teasing you, and it was sarcastic.

"I fired one guy the other day", Scaramucci said.

"One of the big problems that I'm discovering", he continued, "is that senior people are really the guys doing the leaking and they ask junior people to leak for them".

On a social-media strategy focused on making people insane: "Yeah, let me go, though, because I've gotta start tweeting some sh*t to make this guy insane". "So I'm asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it". "This is going to get cleaned up very shortly, O.K.?" The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been anxious about the dinner because he hadn't been invited. Scaramucci has publicly and humiliatingly criticized Priebus, calling him a "paranoid schizophrenic" who will be pushed out soon, and let it be known that the only person he reports to is the President himself, not the chief of staff - a stunning arrangement for a communications director and a sign of debilitating weakness for a sitting chief of staff. "'Oh, Bill Shine is coming in".

"I think that Scaramucci had better be a lot more careful than he has been", Gingrich said on the "Laura Ingraham Show".

While his boss was seeing his latest attempt to kill off Barack Obama's Affordable Healthcare Act fall flat on its arse, White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was writing this tweet.

Earlier Thursday, Huckabee Sanders dodged a question about whether the president has full confidence in the embattled Priebus, repeating an often-used line that the president would dismiss him if he didn't have full confidence.

Scaramucci has promised to contact investigators over what he says is an illegal leak of his financial disclosure form.

After Scaramucci hung up, Lizza clarified that Scaramucci had called to ask who told him about the dinner involving the Trumps and Fox News people.

Lizza published the quotes from the interview after a whirlwind day that kicked off with Scaramucci venting on Twitter about a Politico story that revealed his financial disclosure form.

Speaking to reporters last Friday, Scaramucci said he has worked with the OGE "to take care of all of my business" and that he was pushing back his official start date to mid-August "so that it's 100 percent totally cleansed and clean". "Let me leak the f*cking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months".

Scaramucci, a former Wall Street financier, owns property and businesses worth more than $50 million. His hedge fund firm, SkyBridge Capital, will be sold to a Chinese company, the HNA Group, once regulators sign off. He took in almost $10 million in salary and other income from SkyBridge.
