The Mooch: ‘I’m a Wall Street guy, I’m more of a front-stabbing person’
In Anthony Scaramucci, Donald Trump may have finally found a communications director who can effectively distill and convey his administration’s message: We’ll stab you and look you in the eye while we do it.
The Mooch was on speaking to “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt Wednesday morning, when he was asked about the president’s cyber bullying of Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who voted “no” on Tuesday as to whether to bring up a debate to repeal and replace Obamacare.
“The right thing to do is stand side by side with the president, so when you’re not doing that, imagine you’re a football coach in the locker room, do you think you’re gonna get chewed a little bit?” Scaramucci said. “To me, that’s a classic New Yorker letting you know how you feel.”
So much for the whole separation of powers thing I guess. The White House believes the president is like a coach in charge of telling legislators (the players) what to do, not two completely different branches of government who are, in fact, supposed to be answering only to their constituents. The Mooch continued:
“What I don’t like about Washington is that people don’t let you know how they feel. They’re very nice to your face and then they take a shiv or a machete and stab you in the back. I’m a Wall Street guy. I’m more of a front-stabbing person.”
I’ll give him one thing, he’s honest. Wall Street guys sure do like stabbing people, and given they never have to face any consequences for anything ever, they certainly don’t feel the need to do it behind your back. Nice that we now have a president who feels the same.
