Looks like we’re not getting that Mooch tell-all after all
Last week, Page Six reported that Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci was shopping around a book about his time as White House communications director. Roughly six years have elapsed since The Mooch was fired in July of 2017, but you will perhaps recall that he spent a grand total of ten days on the job. Sadly, it appears we won’t be getting that book, because, well, it would have been terrible and nobody wanted to publish it.
Business Insider got their hands on a copy of the proposal earlier in the summer, which originally promised a “tell-all.” You can read the whole thing over there, but apparently it changed over the last few months. A publishing source told BI the updated proposal was “not good, but it was better than this.”
A big change was that the idea of a tell-all was scrapped. As The Mooch himself told BI’s Max Tani, he didn’t want to do that because he’s “a team player” and he didn’t want to fuck over Trump. Instead he tried to sell a book about what his life has been like after those whirlwind ten days, which absolutely nobody would be interested in.
The Mooch now joins Sean Spicer in the oddly specific group of short-lived Trump comms directors who couldn’t sell a book because they didn’t want to actually write anything worth reading.
