Trump just dragged Scaramucci’s wife into their feud with personal Twitter attack

Anthony Scaramucci, the man best known for his laughably short tenure as Trump’s White House Communications Director has found a way to recapitalize on his fifteen minutes of fame by coming out in opposition to the administration. His criticisms of Trump in recent weeks have grown increasingly harsher, prompting the president to hit back on several occasions.


Now, Trump has unleashed one of his most personal attacks on Scaramucci to date, perhaps prompted by the news that his former ally is attempting to rally a group of former Trump Cabinet members to come out against the president ahead of the 2020 election.

The president tweeted out that Scaramucci is a “highly unstable ‘nut job,'” an ironic insult coming from someone as notoriously unhinged as Donald Trump. He went on to mock his former comms director for working for other Republicans during the 2016 primaries before “wheedling” his way into the Trump campaign.

“I barely knew him until his 11 days of gross incompetence-made a fool of himself, bad on tv,” Trump went on, taking aim at the thing Scaramucci is most often ridiculed for. The president then accused him of abusing staff but didn’t elaborate.

Trump pointed out that Scaramucci wrote a “very nice book” about him recently and questioned his sudden decision to turn against him.

Finally, Trump took the feud to a new low by dragging Scaramucci’s wife into it. He alluded to Scaramucci saying she was “driving him crazy” and that “something big was happening with her.” The president said the two are getting divorced which has made Scaramucci a “mental wreck”, even though the two have, in fact, already called off their divorce. Even by Trumpian standards, taking aim at someone’s marriage is a low blow.

Scaramucci is almost certainly going after the president for the media attention, but if it continues to incense Trump this much it should be commended. Anything that makes this utterly monstrous leader’s life a little more unpleasant is worthwhile.
