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.
“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.”

Scaramucci later fired back.
The Loser is you: 162,000 dead, 40 million American jobs lost on your watch. We are tired of all of the losing. We wanted you to succeed but you are an abject failure. Thankfully it will be over on 11/3. America will heal and rebuild. https://t.co/zRvJQzJo6k

The fiery festivities began after Scaramucci, who in June teamed up with other former Trump and Bush officials to form a pro-Biden super PAC, criticized Trump for “essentially failing at every turn in the White House,” also telling Hilton there is now a need to “re-engineer” the entire Republican Party — post-Trump, of course.
A few of Scaramucci’s “highlights,” as reported by 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.”
The segment began to get testy when Hilton pressed Scaramucci on his support for Biden’s positions, particularly those related to the economy, beginning with Biden’s plan to undo Trump’s deregulation agenda.
“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?”
Steve Hilton TORCHES Anthony “The Mooch’ Scaramucci in Blistering Interview
“You go on about racism [but] you’re now supporting a candidate who keeps saying racist things.”https://t.co/U5QoRKaKWY

Scaramucci, who claims to be an adherent of “the tender side of conservative populism,” responded like any “good Democrat” would respond; by denying he’s said what he’s said, numerous times.
“That’s not what I want,” he fired back. But Hilton persisted:
“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?”
Again, Scaramucci did his best TDS-riddled Democrat impersonation; by yet again attacking Trump.
“[T]he way he treats people […] he bullies suburban housewives on his Twitter feed […]
“He is a divider. He divides people. He incenses people. He is creating hate in our democracy.”
The Mooch then accused Trump of “blowing a racist dog whistle,” but Hilton was ready — with a few recent Biden facts.
“You go on about racism [but] you’re now supporting a candidate who keeps saying racist things. He literally just said the other day he thinks Black people are all the same.”
Hilton was referring to Biden’s latest racist gaffe, in which he pretty much suggested “all Blacks think alike.”
“And by the way, what you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community — with notable exceptions — the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.
You go to Florida, you find a very different attitude about immigration in certain places than you do when you’re in Arizona. So it’s a very different, a very diverse community.”

The Mooch responded sarcastically, saying: “You’re right. The President has never made any gaffes, he’s never said anything stupid.”
As Scaramucci continued to trash Trump, Hilton pinned him to the mat — the same way you pin all Democrats to the mat — by trying to focus the self-professed “Never-Trumper Republican” on facts.
“You’re all over the place and you talk about politics because you don’t want to talk about the policy.”
But Mooch went right back to Trump-trashing, after first saying how he and his fellow Never-Trumpers want to “re-knit” the Republican Party.
“I’m looking at my millennial children and I’m looking about how we are going to re-knit the party so we can make that an all-inclusive party and the principles of that party.
“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.”
“I’m playing the long game,” he said.
Whatever that “long game” is or becomes, Donald Trump, for one, will undoubtedly continue to remind “The Mooch” what a “loser” he is — and always will be — every step of the way.
