Unfortunately for Scaramucci’s divide-and-conquer rhetoric, the NEGOP (Nebraska GOP) Just voted unanimously to endorse President Trump as the candidate for the 2020 election.
Following his recent release of his Book, Trump, the Blue Collar President (Which conservatives now think he’s using the media coverage to draw attention to turning a buck on it) Scaramucci has turned on the President completely.
Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said on Monday that it is “pretty obvious” that he does not support President Trump’s reelection, according to a report from The Hill.
“The guy’s dissembling a little bit, and he’s sounding more and more nonsensical. We’re sort of anesthetized to it, and people inside of Washington are ‘Oh yeah, that’s just President Trump, just let him act like that,’ ” Scaramucci told CNN.
“But you’re fracturing the institutions and all of the things that the country stands for, so that’s not worth the economic policies,” he added. “I’m a Republican, so I’m not switching parties to support a Democrat. I believe in the values and the policies of the Republican Party, but I’m now neutral on the president, and let’s see how he continues to act.”
The comments come after Trump blasted Scaramucci in a tweet on Saturday, calling him “totally incapable of handling” his position in the White House and accusing him of knowing “very little about me.”
The former aide later said the Republican Party should consider taking Trump off the top of their ticket in 2020.
In an interview with Axios on Sunday, Scaramucci compared the president to Chernobyl, a Russian nuclear disaster. Scaramucci called Trump’s trip to Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, in the wake of the two mass shootings in the cities a “total catastrophe” and one of the worst weeks of his presidency after none of the still-hospitalized patients in El Paso agreed to see Trump, and video footage was shared of the president touting the size his campaign rally in El Paso earlier this year.
“I think you have to consider a change at the top of the ticket when someone is acting like this,” he added.
Scaramucci on Monday also criticized Trump for his “reprehensible” and “divisive” rhetoric, going “after people personally” on Twitter, which “incites hate, incites death threats.” He also said “the nonsense from the president is not helping the country,” accusing the president of making “racially charged comments” and “divisive tweeting.”
Scaramucci: GOP may need to replace Trump for 2020 (The Hill)
“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, who was ousted from his job after 11 days, told the outlet.
“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,” he said.
Scaramucci, a prominent Republican donor, said that if Trump “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,” he continued. “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 2020.”
Scaramucci’s comments to Axios follow him last week calling Trump’s visit to El Paso, Texas, to meet with survivors of a mass shooting a “catastrophe.”
Trump fired back soon after, saying that Scaramucci “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.”
Opinion: We all kind grew on Scaramucci during his short tenure in the White House, but now that he’s revealed himself — it reminds me of “The Snake.”
