Anthony Scaramucci Apologizes For Much-Derided Holocaust Twitter Poll: 'I Take Responsibility'

Anthony Scaramucci Apologizes For Much-Derided Holocaust Twitter Poll: 'I Take Responsibility'

In a tweet sent out this afternoon, Scaramucci claimed that Laifer had sent the poll out as part of an effort to "promote Holocaust education" following the controversy over an Anne Frank Halloween costume.

Below shows how 4,776 participated in the Twitter poll that was from the Scaramucci Post Twitter account at 6:38 a.m.

CNN reporter Jake Tapper tweeted Tuesday morning that a source close to Scaramucci said the former White House communications director was "furious" about the poll and "at least one person is getting fired".

Laifer also received publicity in 2007 when he made it his mission to raise as much money as possible for malaria research.

Leifer said he is engaged in trying 'to synthesize social media management with business plans'.

"One of the lessons from the Holocaust was not to allow preventable deaths", he told The New York Times in 2007.

Today (Tuesday), former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who was sacked from his position at the White House after 10 days, sparked a storm when a controversial tweet was posted on his new media page.

Erstwhile White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is-once again-in hot water. "We are glad The Scaramucci Post took it down".

Laifer followed up with additional tweets, explaining his intent with the poll and apologizing "if anyone was offended" by it.

The Anti-Defamation League blasted the Scaramucci Post for asking how many Jews died at the hands of Adolf Hitler's deadly regime. But this is certainly not how it came across, especially not after a string of polls from the account that were all opinion based.

The majority of those responding before poll was pulled from Twitter (about 90 minutes after it was posted) chose "more than 5 million". The phrase "Holocaust" also began trending on Twitter because of this tweet.
