Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci Toasted During Fiery Interview with President Trump Watching

Anthony Scaramucci was among the worst hires President Donald Trump made to his administration, but the good news is, he quickly realized it and got rid of him.
His forced departure turned “The Mooch” into a #NeverTrumper, though the president’s legions of supporters have not taken him or his often unhinged critiques of the president and his administration very seriously.
That hasn’t stopped Scaramucci from continuing to try to convert Trump’s supporters into former Trump supporters. He’s just not been very good at it, and he had even more trouble again Sunday during an interview with Fox News’ Steve Hilton.
And The Mooch got taken apart with the president watching. Grand.
Red State has more details:
Donald Trump’s former White House communications director — he lasted just 11 days — Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci was filleted by Fox News host Steve Hilton on Sunday during a fiery interview, which one “interested viewer” described as “taken apart.”
That interested viewer filleted The Mooch, as well.
The president tweeted: “Scaramucci, who just made a fool of himself as he got taken apart by Steve Hilton, only lasted 11 days in his favorite of all time Administration, before being fired for, again, making a fool of himself. Anthony is a loser who begged to come back. I said “No Thanks.”
The fiery interview with Hilton began after Scaramucci, who, in June, joined with other former Trump and Bush officials to form a pro-Biden super PAC, bashed the president for “essentially failing at every turn in the White House.” He also told Hilton there’s a need to “re-engineer” the GOP after Trump leaves (translation: ‘We want to turn it back into a collection of RINO globalists.’)
Here are some of The Mooch's comments, via Fox News:
“Number one, the economy is upside down. You had 13% unemployment for the African American community.”
“Number two, he’s [Trump] politicized the science around the pandemic […]
“[T]he last thing in the most important thing for me, about the Republican Party, we are shrinking, and so in order to expand the tent, we have to reframe and reengineer the Republican Party.”
To begin with, Hilton pressed Scaramuchi on his support for Biden and, of course, Biden's policies:
Let’s start with regulation, an important issue for every small, business out there for jobs and growth. In 2016 Anthony you said that regulation is crushing growth. Now you want it much higher than it was then. Why?
“That’s not what I want,” Scaramucchi claimed.
But it is because you’re backing Joe Biden who wants that, too. You’re backing those policies. If you don’t want it why are you backing the candidate who supports that?
Mooch then returned to trashing Trump. Again, and again, and again – essentially proving Hilton’s point that he’s not interested in policy, only the politics of Trump Derangement Syndrome because he couldn’t challenge Hilton on Biden’s legendary racism or anything else. How pathetic.
"What we are doing right now, we’ve destroyed the economy, we are dividing the people, we are racially charging, that’s not going to work," Mooch said.
Trump is literally responsible for none of that.
