Post-Scaramucci White House, why Trump is fighting Republicans

05 August, 2017, 00:37 | Author: Dustin Murphy
  • Trump's ousted communications director Anthony Scaramucci to stage live online event

But before that, the audio reflects the two in a friendly-sounding sparring session as Scaramucci tried to get the writer to reveal how he learned about a White House dinner with President Trump, Fox News' Sean Hannity and others. For President Barack Obama he serves as a fundraiser in 2008.

Staff should meet with members of the media "on their home turf", he said, to "build bridges and foster better working relationships", adding that the White House should "leave old grudges behind but never forget". Scaramucci's undoing was largely centered around his verbal gaffes - avoiding those was a key part of the job - including a profanity-laced, on-the-record interview with The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza.

You can listen to the audio excerpts below; they're sandwiched in between Lizza discussing the infamous call, which immediately preceded Scaramucci's downfall as Donald Trump's chief of staff.

He suggested the White House "vastly increases" the amount of visual, video and graphical images it produces to "communicate our message".


The call was not off the record, and Lizza published a written account of it. He accused Priebus of leaking information to the media.

The White House political communication department seems to be in chaos.

Mr Scaramucci was also very vocal about leaks coming out of the White House, saying he wanted to "kill all the leakers". It wasn't long thereafter that both Priebus and Scaramucci were no longer in their White House jobs, with Priebus being replaced by General John Kelly, who is widely perceived as having then ousted Scaramucci. But Scaramucci didn't apologize for the inappropriate comments instead refer it as a colorful language in a tweet.
